Subject Re: Q1: Rollup Release Format
Date Wed, 19 Sep 2001 03:25:59 GMT
To quote our mantra;

be forgiving of the input, strict in the output ;)

If the user 'asks' for a rollup, they aught to get a complete package,
unless it is _clearly_ labeled as an incremental.

I'm leaning, more and more, to offer both options, -complete (no
questions asked, download nothing more) and -all-extras (well, no
base, but we said, it's all the extras, pop3/mbox/proxy/ldap, at
least those quantified as of 'date' as 'gold'.)

All these packages (rollups) must contain the yyyymmdd tag for
clarity, what is 'gold' on a given day will change wrt a given
release of 'core'.
