- Problems with our release process - individuals holding a token? What can be distributed better?
- Interval between releases - is it an issue?
- Bugs missed - we already have known issues1 with 014. Due to insufficient testing or impossible to catch them all? Bad routines?
- Role of release manager - Developer? How many tails on the whip?
- When is a release stable? What can be changed on a "stable" candidate? Problem has been that we have been working on a candidate so long that packages become outdated.
- Roadmap - there hasn't been a clear roadmap for any releases, is it a problem?
- Package selection/update process - How to choose packages/versions to include in release. How to communicate to release manager.
- Make Base/CD/1G Flash images for snapshots. encourage greater testing.
- Grow release, starting with Base -> Desktop -> Apps
Presumptive items on the 015 roadmap:
- System management - GUI
- Authentication and crypting data
- xcb_xlib assert error due to old libxcb
- dbus doesn't have a system id
- no kmix, kde-multimedia needs to be InstallPackage'd
