  • User:Bruno: Can we get the release version names to match the appropriate release. So that instead of a version-release of 11.93-1 We'd use 12-0.raw.1 or the like.
    • User:jkeating: It's possible, but we'd have to explore what all consumes the version-release and what those consumers expect so that we don't badly break something's expectations. This feels beyond the scope of this proposal though, feel free to make a new one.
    • User:Stijn: would like this as well, currently I have to special case some things in private code to determine 11.9x -> 12
  • markmc The "only make images for pending release tree" could have been a proposal in its own right. Almost sounds like installer images should be built separately from the tree and new images should get pulled in only once they're fairly stable.
    • User:jkeating: It could, but if I can lump it in here, I will (: The idea is that often people complain that rawhide is broken for installs, when anaconda just isn't ready for people to be trying installs. Instead people should be starting from a previous known good install point (snapshot, previous GA) and yum upgrade to the rawhide package repo.
  • amacater As someone mirroring Fedora, I'd quite like a smooth transition. When 11 was released, that was another ???GB rather than flicking over a label. I know about hardlink - but Debian doesn't provide it :)
    • User:jkeating You shouldn't have to use the hardlink app. If you rsync with -H rsync will preserve the hardlinks it finds on the mirror, where we have most hardlinkable things hardlinked.
