I don't know about the mirror issues but apparently there was a cascade of issues lately with updating TW, from the rebuild of all packages after updating a C library to saturated servers to zypper errors caused by the curl utility.
A major update of TW will cause some delays in mirrors getting updated.
Are we planning on a post-mortem of the situation, tomake sure that we extract everything there is to know about this crisis?
For starters, I don't even know of any crisis. :-)
Likewise I was unaware of one, but i'll correct a slight misunderstanding, The rebuild of all packages isn't due to an issue its an intentional design decision. A couple of times a year the release managers decide to rebuild the distro to ensure nothing gets missed. Often they time it with an update like glibc because due to the very large number of packages that depend on it most of the distro would have been updated anyway.
If there have been serious bugs that have come up, the best approach as always is to figure out if they could have been replicated by the packages unit test suite or openqa and then add appropriate tests so that a similar issue can't be released again. Often this is much easier said then done.
