Re: Plan for the Holidays

With the holidays upcoming, I plan to get the devel tree as broken-dep

trying to keep those in sync with the new kernels that are pushed into
rawhide.  A lot of folks will have time off over the next couple weeks
and if they choose to test stuff I'd like it to be as easy as possible.

That said, I think it would be good for developers to post what
specifically they think should be tested during this time.  What
components do we need some extra eyes on as we approach test2 freeze?

Off the top of my head, we need the java stack tested, and that is a
pretty big thing.  Also the functionality of your favorite apps is a
good thing to target, given that everything has been rebuilt with the
new gcc.

A whole lot of stuff in -extras development hasn't been rebuilt for months and months either - some as far back as March/April (look at perl-* modules in extras for an example). No doubt there are various dependency issues there too.

Can this be looked at as well? I'm sure packages in extras would also benefit from a rebuild with newer gcc and therefore wider testing over the break.

Extras really does look like a second rate citizen if everything in rawhide is rebuilt for a new gc(c|j)/openssl but packages in extras are left untouched for months...
