The Bug Council met this afternoon @ 4pm. We still do not have a fix for
the blocking 6266 but made progress in finding related bugs serious
enough that we decided to patch them:
- 6402 subindex merge fixes
We now want to test again the current alpha3 branch and see if we can
repro 6266. We are therefore still holding off creating an RC for now
and will meet again *tomorrow Wednesday 26th*.
Some questions you may have:
- Is there a drop dead date for this RC or are we going to slip like
that forever? We decided that we will not slip beyond *Tuesday August
1st*. The main reason being that by then Andi (the principal
investigator here) will be on vacation (or close to).
- So what if we can't fix 6266? We will ship with a warning in the
Release Notes that makes clear what the bug symptoms are and what to do
if that happens.
- Is there a workaround for 6266? The workaround is to quit Chandler and
relaunch it. The good news is that the user data are not compromise. The
bad news is that it's really annoying when that happens... which is why
we'd like to have it fixed if possible.
- Andi is 9 hours ahead of PST, how do we manage for code review? We
decided to authorize Andi to do commit with only a light code review
(quick hand shake on IRC with Katie, me or others). The reason is that,
so far, his changes are extremely simple and safe. We trust him not to
sneak in a massive repo overhaul of course... (and anyway we could back
it out... :) )
- Can we slip any other bug fixes in the meantime? Except for 5906
Till RC, the Bug Council will continue to meet everyday @ 4pm and I will
continue to post here to keep you updated at least once a day.
Hang in there,
