Re: Wget 1.9 about to be released

2003-10-17 Thread Hrvoje Niksic
In case you're curious, I'm still waiting for a response from the GNU
people.

If I don't hear from them soon, I'll release 1.9 anyway and put it on
a private FTP site.  That way there will be a release for Noel to
package for Debian and we can watch the fun as the bug reports start
pouring.


P.S.
The question about the maintainership of the stable branch wasn't a
joke.  If someone wants to volunteer, please contact me.

 If there's a serious problem you'd like fixed in 1.9, speak up now or
 be silent until 1.9.1.  :-)

I thought we were going to turn our attention to 1.10. :-)

The two are not mutually exclusive.  There is now a branch for the 1.9
code.  That means that 1.10 can be worked on, and stability patches
applied to 1.9 in parallel.

Are there volunteers to take over maintaining the branch?  That would
mean following the -patches list and committing bug fixes (and *only*
bug fixes) to the 1.9 branch.
