Hello all, Dimitri John Ledkov [2015-05-26 15:12 +0100]: > Or will there be a v220.1 release shortly with releasy fix-ups?
Can we perhaps flip that around? I did a make dist/port our patches/build packackages/run our tests round on May 11, but that was before most of the recent "hiccups" landed in master. I'd rather love to do that once I know that a release is around the corner, but as we don't currently have "release is imminent" warnings none of the packagers can do this as a pre-release exercise. So Lennart: WDYT about announcing your intent to do a stable release on the ML, and then us packagers can do a "make dist", test an actual tarball, and thus find all these little tarball errors, udev regressions and what not before the official release is cut? At least for me, the biggest part of updating to a new release is to rebase our ~ 50 patches; doing that against a near-release tarball will be the same amount of work; running automatic tests is negligible human effort, and running manual tests doesn't take that long for me (that's the point which might vastly differ for other packagers -- but then again, testing pre-release tarballs means that not much will change any more until the real release, so the second time testing will be faster).
