There must be a name for bugs you only find post-release
This week I made two releases of my mail client. Immediately after both releases I found bugs. Despite having been using the github source tree on my box for reading mail for days.
There must be a name for bugs that come up immediately after you've just made a release.
I'm torn between wanting to make a new release right now to fix the thing I spotted, or wait a few more days to fix a few other niggles.
Still I did write some cool code today:
- If a mail is received on the list debian.security-announce
- And the package in the Subject: is not installed on the current machine.
- The mail is marked as read.
Sure this means that a package on my webserver won't be visible to me, but my upgrade tool will see that. It just decreases the odds I read about an update that doesn't apply to me.
