Hi Andrew, and what about if the Gentoo devs release after 3 months a new tarball for the new user...if will remove the need to update their box and also, maybe it's a good idea to refresh the tarball between 2 majors profiles..<br><br>Sylvain<br><br>&gt; Date: Sun, 27 Jan 2008 20:33:01 -0600<br>&gt; From: agaffney@g.o<br>&gt; To: gentoo-releng@g.o<br>&gt; Subject: Re: [gentoo-releng] Call for feature request for 2008.0<br>&gt; <br>&gt; Sylvain Alain wrote:<br>&gt; &gt; Hi, I'm not sure if I'm on the right list, but I would like to know what <br>&gt; &gt; do you think of the Daniel Robbins Idea of creating tarball stages every <br>&gt; &gt; weeks are so : http://www.funtoo.org/linux/<br>&gt; &gt; <br>&gt; &gt; For now it's a good idea because of the expat problem and the age of the <br>&gt; &gt; official tarball, but  in future can Gentoo provide more up to date <br>&gt; &gt; tarball for the users  ?<br>&gt; <br>&gt; Please, please don't top-post.<br>&gt; <br>&gt; The problem with drobbins's weekly stage tarballs is that there is absolutely <br>&gt; zero QA done on them. We can't with good conscience release completely untested <br>&gt; stage tarballs out into the wild. We also don't want to have to deal with bug <br>&gt; reports that would stem from this.<br>&gt; <br>&gt; -- <br>&gt; Andrew Gaffney                                 http://dev.gentoo.org/~agaffney/<br>&gt; Gentoo Linux Developer             Catalyst/Installer + x86 release coordinator<br>&gt; -- <br>&gt; gentoo-releng@g.o mailing list<br>&gt; <br><br /><hr /> <a href='' target='_new'></a></body>
