Subject 4.2.0-rc-5 plans
Date Mon, 01 Oct 2007 19:54:00 GMT
Greetings all.

On Friday, Martin performed a fairly major merge from trunk to
branches/4.2.0.  The current results of this merge from nightly testing
can be found at .  A handful
of the platforms in the list (hpux-11.23-ia64, hpux-11.31-pa,
irix-6.5-mips, solaris-10-sparc) don't have -rc5 results, either because
the hardware used in the testing is offline (hpux-11.31-pa and
irix-6.5-mips), or processing other requests (hpux-11.23-ia64 and

The question I have is whether it makes sense to tag branches/4.2.0 as
of r580483 (Martin's integration) as tags/4.2.0-rc-5, or whether it
makes more sense to include the changes which were merged today as part
of the 4.2.0-rc-5 tag.  I would argue for the former, in part because I
have some results from running the tests and examples under Rational
PurifyPlus 7.0 ( )
which I plan to post shortly.  This build was made using trunk at
r580086 plus part of the patch attached to STDCXX-573.  SVN trunk at
r580086 should be identical to branches/4.2.0 at r580483, assuming the
merge ran correctly.

Opinions, please?
