We did have some RCs that were published, but given that there were 18
live images to make, getting them all made, published, and wait for
feedback on all of them between every RC would have been extremely
limiting in our ability to have fast turnaround on RCs.
In order to accommodate so many spins, the spin process had to be very
hands off from releng point of view. I have to trust that the spin
owners are vigilant in ensuring their spin works, so that releng can
compose and publish all of them in the very limited amount of time we
Basically we'll need spin owners to participate when we reach RC stage,
and as each day passes, if any package gets tagged for the release that
is in one of your spins, you'll have the responsibility of re-ensuring
your spin works.
I can only test what I'm told to test. I tested all the nightlies and
all worked. I didn't even know there were images at
and according to
Bill these were not really the rc4 images but the final ones. So were
were this rc images that you mentioned at the beginning of your mail?
For the next release I suggest to send a mail to every spin owner and
tell him to test each image rel-eng makes. I'm sure owners and the SIG
will be happy to help rel-eng wherever they can.
