Subject RE: [ACS41] 4.1 branch moving to "limited updates only" after today
Date Fri, 01 Mar 2013 15:28:04 GMT
Just had a chat with Chip over this on the IRC   . I can volunteer to apply the patches over
this weekend in case there are any , provided they are fully tested and reviewed by someone
, since the patches might not be form my area of expertise. 

And I'll let Abhi take over this on the weekdays (assuming he's not available on the weekends
) to facilitate the committing of the patches to 4.1  - Just my thoughts !

We have sizable QA Team in IST Time zone.

I was just thinking about the exact same thing!

Any volunteer to be the 4.1 committer for my sleep hours?
