1. Distribution Freeze and beta
- TC decided that the repositories will be frozen once the following work has been completed:
- Update libc to latest release
- Update clang compiler to 3.8 final
- Complete updates to KF and KFAPPS
- Update Calamares to Version 2.0 just released
- Some difficult remaining issues have been diagnosed and are being fixed qt5-qtwebkit being linked against the wrong libwebp (one showstopper that was preventing us from building the iso) is solved.
- No promised ETA on beta iso, but it will be “soon”
- We’ll set up a new master mirror for other mirrors to pull from
- Sync is finished
2. ABF Build Farm
OpenMandriva own abf build farm is now running and we are stabilising and tracking down a few final issues. Assuming all goes welll we should be in a position to resume work on the beta release some time next week. The new abf will give users the opportunity to participate in the distro in a very real way.
It was resolved to have an Info item added to the TC meeting agenda where all important news was gathered together for publication in a forum thread. This will ensure that users will get a regular weekly update as to the state of the distribution.
