I fully agree. The effort it takes too identify fixes is too large. Also,
upstream will not be as amenable in helping us diagnose bugs when we are so
I don't agree. We're moments from release and the 3.0 release hasn't
been out for that long and it's likely that while it might fix the one
bug it could introduce any number of other bugs.
I know upstream is moving really fast these days, but I thinbk any
alleviated by Rex's backport - we can safely identify any showstoppers
within a fedora release cycle.
There's a working backport patch for a platform that isn't really
supported in Fedora and it works on other virtual platforms without
issue. While I would love to see 3.0 in Fedora 18 due to it's support
for UCM which is used extensively in ARM I'm not even pushing it
because I know it could break more than it might well fix.
1.1 for F17 is way to far behind IMHO given that upstream is now at
Why? it works and is relatively stable, there's a lot of change
between 1.1, 2.0, 2.1 and 3.0 which could introduce any number of
other bugs and regressions in a release that is suppose to be stable.
