Uff. Two and a half days of hunting release critical bugs ended yesterday evening.
It think it was quite a success. According to the statistics we closed
23 bugs with direct uploads, we created patches for 11, 9 bugs got
solved by package removals, 6 will be closed by uploads via the
delayed queue, 2 bugs were closed as unreproducible, and 9 other bugs where
closed as well (e.g.
already fixed in older version). On the other
hand we opened 3 and upgraded 6 bugs to be release critical. So in the
end, we solved about...
60 bugs! Wow, I'm really impressed!
I'm also really pleased how well we integrated the
newbs. As I
already mentioned, when planing for this BSP started, we were a bit worried
about the DD / non-dd ratio, but in the end everything worked out very
well. All of those, who registered as
interested users where able
to fix some rc bugs, or help sort out some BTS hickups, e.g. bugs opened
with package a but closed in package b. And as a special pleasure it seems,
that the longest outstanding rc
bug might be fixed soonish, too :)
I'd also like to thank Pengutronix for hosting and sponsoring the BSP! The infrastructure worked very well: You arrived, plugged in your notebook, had a local mirror, IPv6 and fast enough connection to the outside. They also provided lots of snacks, cooked food and drinks (later they complained Debian people won't drink enough; apparently they calculated with way more drinks) and a general good atmosphere.
PS: To the best of my knowledge, it was also the
bug squashing party ever, with most foods and all the electricity coming
from certified ecological production. Cool, eh?
