> Hello all,
> As discussed in previous threads we will try to stabilize the SVN so
> packagers can do their work on a more solid base. So let's try to make
> the SVN more stable during this week and let's stop doing new feature
> during this weekend, doing bug fixes and testing instead.
> If you have a massive change that would change all the repository
> and is still untested, please wait until next Monday or do it as a
> compile/runtime time option and leave it disabled until Monday. If
> possible, take a look at "Active Tickets"
> (http://trac.enlightenment.org/e/report/1) and validate (close if now
> invalid!) or try to fix a couple of them. Running valgrind, gdb and
> memprof are good things to do this week ;-)
> Thursday night I'll commit a FEATURE-LOCKED to svn trunk and we
> expect that after that commit we just do fixes. Sunday night I'll
> remove that file and that commit will be tagged in SVN. Packagers will
> build on that tag.
> Please update your SVN checkouts and try to update daily and
> report issues to mail list and also as tickets. We want to know what
> is broken so we can fix it, bear in mind that developers do not use
> all existent options and combination of them, so corner cases may show
> here and there. REPORT! If you want to help with development but
> have no coding skills, please go to"Active Tickets" and try to
> reproduce problems, if not possible ask the reporter to check it again
> and if not reproducible anymore to close the ticket.
> Willing to help testing? You can do:
> - compare expedite benchmarks on the same system, tell us if you
> see regressions.
> - check memory usage.
> - check if dialogs work properly.
> - create a dummy user and start with a clean profile, try to
> configure the system the way you want, see if it's possible (good way
> to test if dialogs work properly).
