I agree. As far as I understand you, the release date should remain the
same, just the time for real BUG fixing should be bigger. Only the
feature freeze will be earlier.
What influences will this have on the planned updates of packets?
- Kernel 2.6.18 (is in RC at the moment)
- FireFox 2
- k3b 1.0
- Gnome 2.16 (ok, that one is released. I don't see a problem)
Will they still be integrated if released upstream AFTER the feature
freeze (which in fact would be WRONG). For the kernel this might be ok,
as 2.6.18 can be considered as a bugfix of 2.6.18-RC5, but for other
For k3b for example: I had some mail contact with the author regarding
cdrecod / cdrkit. Most probable he will start to support both of them of
course slightly shifting a schedule due to the new upcoming license
But otherwise, I think everybody agrees that we better spend time on
bug fixing with what we have now instead of adding fancy features until
the last moment and not having time to test it completely.
