12 I'm working on it.
13 The bug itself was fixed on catalyst some weeks ago (I still need to do a
14 release with it, but our official box is using catalyst-9999 and has the
15 fix).
16 The 2 main issues with the stages and isos for the past 6 months have been
17 developer time (I'm the one doing that work and haven't had as much free
18 time) and the hardware hosting the official build box.
19 The new buildbox has had a few hardware issues that have caused it to
20 reboot while running the catalyst jobs. We also had a few issues with the
21 tree that caused some build failures and the main reason why everyone is
22 so interested in the new stages / isos, the recent major blocks affecting
23 the tree, also caused issues for catalyst.
25 In the meantime, anyone interested in new stages / isos, are free and
26 welcome to test the ones built on my own server (using the official
27 specs)[1].
29 About the complaints regarding the packages in the minmal cds, releng's
30 position is that it should include the bare minimum to install Gentoo.
31 That's why we're now creating admin-cds, that use a hardened kernel /
32 toolchain and include a few useful tools (still no X, though)[2].

43 PS - I still haven't fixed my Gentoo email setup, so I wasn't following
44 this
45 thread until someone hinted about it.
