NetBSD Quarterly Status Report - 2004Q2


NetBSD Quarterly Status Report - 2004Q2

April - June 2004:

This is the second edition of the quarterly NetBSD Status Report,
covering the months April through June of 2004.  The two most
frequently asked questions we have received since the last status
report have all been related to either the Logo Contest or the release
of NetBSD 2.0.  We do not yet have precise dates for the next release,
and nor have we finalized a winner of the Logo Contest, but this
report addresses both these issues.  In addition, many other exciting
things have happened in the last three months.

The second quarter of 2004 within NetBSD in details:

Administrative:
	- NetBSD Logo Design Contest update
	- New Developers [20040701]
	- NetBSD Trademark application completed [20040426]

Miscellaneous:
	- NetBSD 2.0 in Beta stage
	- Lehmanns BSD Collection DVD
	- New products based on NetBSD
	- Sun Grid Engine ported to NetBSD [20040503]
	- X11 config files moved to /etc [20040516]

pkgsrc:
	- xpkgwedge is now the default [20040404]

Current status on 2.0 branch: July 23rd 2004

Below is a summary of where we're at on the 2.0 release. As you'll notice,
according to this schedule we would be in RC1, but due to the number of
outstanding bugs we're not quite there yet.

So, rather than reformulate another schedule I wanted to publish this to
give folks an idea of where we're at and once RC1 tags approx how long it'll
take before the release is done. I personally expect RC1 to tag within
the next 2 weeks and we'll publish that here when it happens as well.

Also attached are the list of critical PR's from testing that have been
noted as critical. IPF 4.1.3 still remains to be merged into the branch at
which point the remaining bugs will hopefully be fixed (or easy to fix).

------

Original Branch date: Mar 28 2004

Current schedule: - Slipped from original. Re-re-worked one is below:

*Mar 29nd - July 17th - Beta period - Testing feedback and pullups
July 18th - RC1 tag - Only pullups past this point are for showstoppers. Any
                     pullups will cause a new RC cycle so be aware of this
                     when asking for something.
**July 19th - Aug 2nd - RC1 testing
Aug 3rd  - RC2 tag or final release tag - Assuming nothing was wrong w. RC1
                                           If RC2 then final release pushes out
                                           2 weeks, etc.
Aug 17th - Announce release after ftp uploaded, iso's created and mirrors   
           synced.

While I'm in no position to confirm this as fixed (don't have sparc64),
this looks like the same as 25594, which is fixed.
