Package freeze is now in effect.
Any other packages need updating need to be justified, unless
it's a bug fix.
Packages excluded from the freeze are Binutils, Bootscripts, Headers,
Linux, and Udev Rules. (If the new packages become available soon)
Binutils 2.17 and Linux 2.6.17 are our targets for this release,
If Linux 2.6.17 doesn't get released soon, we will keep 2.6.16 in.
I have added another 2 weeks to get the text updated properly, we
need to make sure the book flows well.
We will also need to create a working branch for the current 1.0
so that we can keep the trunk up to date with all the updates to
a quicker release.
We need to have a discussion on where people should pull
there gcc information from, because every architecture is going to be
different and very hard to maintain. Any suggestions here.
I'm also going to move Ryan's scripts into a separate repo. But I
like to move the various scripts that all of use have created into
this new repo
as well. I know Joe and I have such a build system. I will talk with
about getting this setup.
Anyone want to be the release manager for 1.0?
I would like to see a test build done from each of the devs on the
can support. Along with testsuite information that we can post into
a archive. I think
the biggest testsuites we need to keep are Binutils, GCC, GLIBC, and
Any objections or comments, let's keep it in this thread.
