apologies for top-post(*)

There was an email a couple days ago with concern about the release strategy
and I didnt see followup (or missed it, in which case, apologies).

Basically, it would be really great if we separated out stable releases into
OpenSUSE:Tools and put beta releases into the -Devel project. This has affected
me in several ways:

-- It has been very difficult time for me with our IT staff when the "stable"
repo has "beta" packages in it. 'Beta' software requires extremely intensive
approval process that just drains the life from you. I know that there is very
little difference between them except the label, but our IT folk cannot be made
to understand.

-- We would like to have a couple instances running for different
international sites and I cant get the versions synced because of the churn.

-- some rpm upgrade problems (hopefully recently fixed) have prevented me
from doing regular upgrades because my obs instance kept breaking and requiring
attention after every upgrade

* Status Round
* 1.6 Release

Status Round

* continue to work on webclient 2.0
* Smaller bugfixes and implementation

* Debugged and fixed the "world spamming" hermes bug.
(Sent a submission request to everybody in the system instead
of target group only after receiving broken input message).

* Fixed a bug in signing daemon, fixes resignment with rpm from
openSUSE 11.1 (broken signed packages after aggregation)
* broken source link merge functionality is implemented, except
in osc part.

* Java script code fixes for webclient 2.0
* Thinking about project and package listings of webclient
* Discussion with Sigi about our download page.

* Currently live image builds are limited to 2GB size due to paritioning
of build hosts. Easiest solution is to increase swap size.
AI: mls evaluate if we can export build result via a more clever
mechanism, just exporting the block numbers and read directly
from root partition without need to trust the file system.
* Implemented improved handling of source links with revision numbers.
(new "osc setlinkrev" command, not yet released).

1.6 Release

* Got released as 1.6 Beta 1
* Feature complete, but we need further testing with instance at Current status is:
- Debian 5.0 arm builds a working, Maemo builds already running
- No working rpm based builds yet, Fedora 10 has too broken
qemu. No other rpm based distro imported yet.
GSoC project shall provide a SUSE based arm distro as base.

* fixed code for XEN / qemu user mode arm
* provided static mount / bash for OBS worker images to be able to run
Cross Build
* provided some code for cross build activation
* adrian deployed these new worker images
* fixed build script to replace "uname -i"
* throughtoutly tested -r 7072 with cross build
* provied updates packages for obs, osc, build in openSUSE:Tools:Devel
after OBS 1.6 Beta on svn trunk -r 7072
* tested cross OBS with Mer 0.10 and 0.11
* some review of QEMU patches used in cross OBS with QEMU maintainer
