So... We've had no bug reports on _rc9 that were beyond trivial.
We've added a few more fixes, and now we are quickly pushing 51
As the changes are quite minor, _rc10 will only be out for the
night and 2.0.51 proper will be released stable early tomorrow
morning (Oct 20, 2004).
The only potential bugs will be experienced by LARGE SRC_URI
packages as it's hard to test the enhancement I added to portage
and repoman. Portage handles PARTIAL digesting now. It will make
assumptions that the files you do not that are in a previous
digest are valid and merge the missing and the present files to
produce the new digest.
The results of this is that portage no longer downloads all files
if you are using FEATURES=cvs, only the ones you need. You will
be REQUIRED to have all files listed in the digest, but not
required to have all files locally if you have the checksums
already. This is the area I cannot test easily. Artificial cases
are a little weak here. So this is where I might expect bugs.
I can handle devs complaining, and the users won't notice this.
I include some visual acuity enhancements and everything looks
good to me.
TEST AND REPORT BACK _ANY_ ODDITIES.
People seem to be ignoring my IRC /notice so I'll have
to come up with a way of being more noticible. :-p
