Richard 'RichiH' Hartmann Release Critical Bug report for Week 47

There's a BSP this weekend. If you're interested in remote participation, please join #debian-muc on irc.oftc.net.

The UDD bugs interface currently knows about the following release critical bugs:

  • In Total: 1213 (Including 210 bugs affecting key packages)
    • Affecting Jessie: 342 (key packages: 152) That's the number we need to get down to zero before the release. They can be split in two big categories:
      • Affecting Jessie and unstable: 260 (key packages: 119) Those need someone to find a fix, or to finish the work to upload a fix to unstable:
        • 37 bugs are tagged 'patch'. (key packages: 20) Please help by reviewing the patches, and (if you are a DD) by uploading them.
        • 12 bugs are marked as done, but still affect unstable. (key packages: 3) This can happen due to missing builds on some architectures, for example. Help investigate!
        • 211 bugs are neither tagged patch, nor marked done. (key packages: 96) Help make a first step towards resolution!
      • Affecting Jessie only: 82 (key packages: 33) Those are already fixed in unstable, but the fix still needs to migrate to Jessie. You can help by submitting unblock requests for fixed packages, by investigating why packages do not migrate, or by reviewing submitted unblock requests.
        • 65 bugs are in packages that are unblocked by the release team. (key packages: 26)
        • 17 bugs are in packages that are not unblocked. (key packages: 7)

How do we compare to the Squeeze release cycle?

Richard 'RichiH' Hartmann Release Critical Bug report for Week 46

I know I promised better stats, but meh... Next week :(

As you can see, there's been a bit of a mass-filing going on. and that pushed ys above Wheezy's count for week 46.

My own personal favourite bug is, of course, this one.

The UDD bugs interface currently knows about the following release critical bugs:

  • In Total: 1263 (Including 218 bugs affecting key packages)
    • Affecting Jessie: 427 (key packages: 175) That's the number we need to get down to zero before the release. They can be split in two big categories:
      • Affecting Jessie and unstable: 313 (key packages: 131) Those need someone to find a fix, or to finish the work to upload a fix to unstable:
        • 33 bugs are tagged 'patch'. (key packages: 15) Please help by reviewing the patches, and (if you are a DD) by uploading them.
        • 12 bugs are marked as done, but still affect unstable. (key packages: 6) This can happen due to missing builds on some architectures, for example. Help investigate!
        • 268 bugs are neither tagged patch, nor marked done. (key packages: 110) Help make a first step towards resolution!
      • Affecting Jessie only: 114 (key packages: 44) Those are already fixed in unstable, but the fix still needs to migrate to Jessie. You can help by submitting unblock requests for fixed packages, by investigating why packages do not migrate, or by reviewing submitted unblock requests.
        • 82 bugs are in packages that are unblocked by the release team. (key packages: 32)
        • 32 bugs are in packages that are not unblocked. (key packages: 12)

Richard 'RichiH' Hartmann One pot noodles

I had prepared a long and somewhat emotional blog post called "On unintended consequences" to write a rather sad bit of news off of my heart. While I believe the points raised were logical, courteous, and overall positive, I decided to do something different and replace sad things with happy things.

So anyway, for 3-4 people you will need:

  • The largest, widest cooking pot you can find (you want surface to let more water evaporate)
  • 500g noodles, preferably Bavette
  • 300g cherry tomatoes
  • ~150g sundried tomatoes
  • ~150g grilled peppers
  • a handful of olives
  • two medium-sized red onions
  • as much garlic as is socially acceptable in your group
  • one or two handful of fresh basil leaves
  • large gulp of olive oil
  • ~100g fresh-ground Parmesan
  • salt, to taste
  • random source of capsaicin, to taste
  • water

Proceed to the cooky part of the evening:

  • Slice and cut all vegetables into sizes of your preference; personally, I like to stay on the chunky side, but do whatever you feel like.
  • Pour the olive oil into the pot; optionally add oil from your sundried tomatoes and/or grilled peppers in case those came in oil.
  • Put the pot onto high heat and toss the chopped vegetables in as soon as it starts heating up.
  • Stir for maybe a minute, then add a bit of water.
  • Toss in the noodles and add just enough water to cover everything.
  • Now is a good time to add salt and capsaicin, to taste.
  • Cook everything down on medium to high heat while stirring and scraping the bottom of the pot so nothing burns. You want to get as much water out of the mix as possible.
  • Towards the end, maybe a minute before the noodles are al dente, wash the basil leaves and rip them into small pieces.
  • Turn off the heat, add all basil and cheese, stir a few times, and serve.

If you don't have any of those ingredients on hand and/or want to add something else: Just do so. This is not an exact science and it will taste wonderful any way you make it.

Richard 'RichiH' Hartmann Release Critical Bug report for Week 45

WE ARE FROZEN!

Please note that Lucas hacked a "key packages" count into this list. If you have spare cycles, look at those first.

I hope to have a (somewhat) random bug of the week thingie by next week which picks stalled bugs for increased exposure.

As you can see, we are a bit worse than in the Squeeze cycle, but way ahead of Wheezy. Stats with proper diffs will also start next week.

The UDD bugs interface currently knows about the following release critical bugs:

  • In Total: 1154 (Including 190 bugs affecting key packages)
    • Affecting Jessie: 295 (key packages: 150) That's the number we need to get down to zero before the release. They can be split in two big categories:
      • Affecting Jessie and unstable: 229 (key packages: 116) Those need someone to find a fix, or to finish the work to upload a fix to unstable:
        • 22 bugs are tagged 'patch'. (key packages: 12) Please help by reviewing the patches, and (if you are a DD) by uploading them.
        • 14 bugs are marked as done, but still affect unstable. (key packages: 8) This can happen due to missing builds on some architectures, for example. Help investigate!
        • 193 bugs are neither tagged patch, nor marked done. (key packages: 96) Help make a first step towards resolution!
      • Affecting Jessie only: 66 (key packages: 34) Those are already fixed in unstable, but the fix still needs to migrate to Jessie. You can help by submitting unblock requests for fixed packages, by investigating why packages do not migrate, or by reviewing submitted unblock requests.
        • 37 bugs are in packages that are unblocked by the release team. (key packages: 24)
        • 29 bugs are in packages that are not unblocked. (key packages: 10)

Richard 'RichiH' Hartmann Release Critical Bug report for Week 43

Just a friendly reminder: If your package is not in unstable (and reasonably bug free) by Sunday, it's not in Jessie.

I am not doing full stats as I am unsure about the diff format at the moment, but in week 43, we had 284 bugs for Squeeze and 468 for Wheezy.

(282 + 468) / 2 = 376; so we are a bit better off than on average. Still, here's to hoping this freeze will be shorter.

The UDD bugs interface currently knows about the following release critical bugs:

  • In Total: 1193
    • Affecting Jessie: 319 That's the number we need to get down to zero before the release. They can be split in two big categories:

Ubiquitous surveillance is a given these days, and I am not commenting on the crime or the level of stupidity of the murderer, but the fact that the iPhone even logs when you turn your flashlight on and off is scary.

Very, very scary in all its myriad of implications.

But at least it's not as if both your phone and your carrier wouldn't log your every move anyway.

Because Enhanced 911 and its ability to silently tell the authorities your position was not enough :)
