Oh well, I guess it's time to put some diary stuff in this nice little <textarea>. :)
Ask not what the BTS can do for you...
The amount of crap people can fill into a bug tracking
system is unbelieveable. I spent a couple of hours today
figuring out what do all those bug reports filed against
packages like "cd-rom" or "base.tgz" mean, and where they
should be reassigned to. It makes me want to... drink some
Sprite. :| Plus, my bandwidth to our BTS server sucks.
And finally, after I got tired and sent the message to control@bugs, the kernel maintainer flamed me because of reassigning some 15 bugs regarding older kernel-related packages versions of which have changed already. We should definitely make more pseudo packages, such as "kernel-image-alpha", "kernel-image-powerpc", "kernel-image-idepci" etc.
Yesterday I uploaded XMMS 1.2.0. Two minutes after that
people told me there was a 1.2.1 in preparation because of
some screwup upstream. Great. Another 1.5MB tarball to
download, package and upload, over my beautifully slow
I also made a kinda-security upload of xinetd after xmms, it fixes an ugly bug causing the site access rules not to be respected when it comes to hosts without a PTR. Yuck. What is even more "Yuck" is that the upload is stuck in incoming until the test cycle ends. Oh well. I'll have to nag aj (acting as the release manager while dark's away) to include it.
Which reminds me... before next test cycle start, I oughta translate the Release Notes. Or bug Matej to do it. :o) The installation manual is `finito', thank goodness.
Now, let's get back to the Sprite. Or, considering it's almost 3AM, to bed.
