Whiteboard

2006-06-22 19:17 jbailey - Doesn't have an implementation plan, and does have a pile of outstanding issues. I would like to see how those outstanding issues will be resolved.
2006-06-23 10:49Z tfheen: Very telegraph-style-ish, please be a bit more verbose.

2006-06-29 20:00Z keybuk: reviewer comments still in text, please correct. returned to drafting
2006-07-04 16:00Z doko: removed review comments
dev-days: NPTL (5, complete), ssp (2, complete), multiarch/biarch (4?, optional), obsolete compilers (2 (1done)+ fixing packages depending on these), new upstream versions (mostly done, 2? remaining)
2006-07-05 mdz: reviewed, comments inline. if we exclude the optional items and the ones which are covered by other specs, there is almost nothing here (just packaging a few new upstream versions). is that correct?
2006-07-05 doko: name compilers to be demoted, move NPTL hppa issue to outstanding issues. outstanding work: demotion requires some work by fixing packages using these compilers. it's less work, because much was already done in dapper+1-toolchain.
2006-07-05 mdz: Approved with edits
2006-09-12 doko: Set to implemented; all the required topics are addressed.
