Subject: [gentoo-dev] policy for marking development branches of programs as stable?
Date: Sat, 19 Jul 2003 16:19:50
1 I just noticed that mutt-1.5.4-r1 was marked stable on x86. The 1.5 branch
2 of mutt is the development branch -- 1.4 is the stable branch, similar to
3 the 2.4/2.5 kernel series.
5 It seems wrong to me that we would mark development branches of software as
6 stable. The mutt developers, who presumably know mutt much better than any
7 of us do, don't feel 1.5 is stable -- who are we to disagree?
9 Do we have some sort of policy for this? If not, can we make one?
