I won't be unreasonable in this (and as seen at least one of the key
distros has answered the call by now).
We have said earlier that a key set of distros should leave a go inside
the release process to make sure that the major build and integration
errors are overcome.
The key distros as far as I see it are:
If other distros chip in and tell us that it works for them I see that as
a bonus and will take that into account when going forward.
For this release I would not necessarily wait for a go from the (l)ubuntu
camp because I think we can cope with potential failures in a new release
before their next freeze (late European summer or something).
I did add arch in my previous list because I think there were some arch
person around earlier, I have omitted them here on purpose.
So where do we stand?
There has been some translations added and OpenSUSE says it works; I can
tag and make the tar.gz and write parts of a release note and announcement
for the blog but I am not sure that I can upload the file to sf.net.
I'll check the things closer and post another thread about this.
