Technology

Technology is... weird.

I am in a cabbin in the middle of Lapland an hour away from the next city to speak of. GPS

N 66 15.958
E 24 59.981

look it up.

We haven't had power for the last 60 minutes, the electrical heaters are out and we are trying to keep the main room warm with a wood stove while the wood-burning sauna above is ready to receive us the minute I hI push this post. The cabbin has become noticiably colder already, supply of logs small enough to actually burn is limited, we don't have an axe, but we have a car so we can leave if need be. The next house is about six kilometers away, no idea if they have power or not; the woods are dark all round other than for snowshine.

Yet, I am sitting here, LED lamp lighting the room, GPS telling me what location to write into this post, laptop running on battery, cell phone with EGPRS supplying me with bugstats plus picture (even though I had to do most of it by hand as LWP::Simple barfs on the timeout) and allowing me to push to ikiwiki.

As I said, technology is... weird.

Bugology

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

  • In Total: 786
    • Affecting wheezy: 194 That's the number we need to get down to zero before the release. They can be split in two big categories:
      • Affecting wheezy and unstable: 128 Those need someone to find a fix, or to finish the work to upload a fix to unstable:
        • 34 bugs are tagged 'patch'. 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. This can happen due to missing builds on some architectures, for example. Help investigate!
        • 90 bugs are neither tagged patch, nor marked done. Help make a first step towards resolution!
      • Affecting wheezy only: 66 Those are already fixed in unstable, but the fix still needs to migrate to wheezy. You can help by submitting unblock requests for fixed packages, by investigating why packages do not migrate, or by reviewing submitted unblock requests.
        • 40 bugs are in packages that are unblocked by the release team.
        • 26 bugs are in packages that are not unblocked.

How do we compare to the Squeeze release cycle?
