After a short period of wrangling things from utopic-proposed to vivid-proposed and a few small merges and uploads to prime the archive, vivid is now open for development.
In theory, this shouldn't change much, but the arch-indep build architecture has been changed from i386 to amd64, which more closely matches what (most) developers test on, and also what Debian will be doing when they implement their source upload strategy. Nothing else major is happening on opening day, however there are some things to look out for in the coming months: - A switch from C to C.UTF-8 on the builders and the default locale when none is selected in the installer. - A move to glibc 2.20 or 2.21, timing dependent. - Steady progress on the systemd transition, with a goal to switch over in the first half of the cycle. Autosyncs will be running shortly, so give a little patience to the buildd network as they work through the queue, and no need to rush to sync your favourite package, it'll get there. Lots of reports still point to utopic, and ISO builds aren't on yet, but we'll sort both of those out in the coming days. Happy hacking, happy uploading, and may all your vervets be vivid. Whatever a vervet is. ... Adam -- ubuntu-devel-announce mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-devel-announce
