In my mind, this is a gross under evaluation :). We have to review all
the code to be sure that we didn't missed any of these comparisons
(the issue is also a little bit misleading as it make people think
it's just a problem with RDN).

I would says it will take at least one full week, may be two.

Perhaps but soon as I get cookin I can knock stuff out but might
take longer than I expect agreed.

Yes. This is what I'm working on atm.

Cool I'm just trying to get back in the groove with a new machine.

Your days contains how many hours ?


Ok, just kidding. The idea is to
get 1.5.1 out, as we have fixed 63 issues since 1.5.0, so whatever the
number of issues we still have for 1.5.1, I would favor a release by
the end of this week, so that we can test all the packagers and run a
certification test on it. Then we will be able to switch to 1.5.2 for
the next 2 months.

We don't need to have all the bug fixed, we just need to have our
users pleased with a better version every two months. We don't respect
the 'release early, release often' principle, and this is not good.

Let's evaluate the remaining bugs and fix as much as we can for
august, 20, and then release.


As long as you drive the bug parade then I'm on board.
