    I am not sure how many other may agree or disagree with the following opinion, but I would welcome all others thoughts.

    I do NOT believe that we should Release openSuse 11.2 until such time that ever bug listed as either
    Blocker, Critical and Major statistics are not ZERO FOR BOTH 11.1 AND 11.2.

    I seem to get the opinion that 11.1 Bugs under the above priorities will be magically fixed by releasing 11.2. If this philosophy is present then the user has NO ability to NOT upgrade to 11.2 and I do not think this methodology is acceptable nor should this philosophy deserve any merit.

    If this means we go to 11.2 RC99 then so be it.

    Many of us put hours of testing and research into reporting bugs and a lot of effort goes into most all of them. If they become just a statistic with no real target to resolve them, then the community is just wasting time in the long arduous task of research and documenting bugs of significant impact.

    I maintain an off-line LAN environment for the sole reason of testing bugs that impact ALL Network Services and IP communications. Many other maintain an off-line single test PC for the same reasons. If our commitment to reporting accurate and descriptive Bugs is given little priority, to commit to have the Blocker,Critical and Major Bugs of the preceding release and new release at ZERO; then the community is engaged in a huge commitment that will never see the light of day.

    I invite any others opinions – Do we go up to RC99 until all Blocker, Critical and Major Bugs are ZERO of the new release or do we nominate a day in the calendar for the Release?

    Do we accept a new Release in the first place when the New Release does not have all Blocker, Critical and Major bug at ZERO?

    Do we accept a new Release in the first place when the Current Release does not have all Blocker, Critical and Major bug at ZERO?

    Do we accept the philosophy of creating a new release in the hope it will Magically fix the bugs of the prior release, if that philosophy does truly exist?

    Have your say on Bug Statistics in each Weekly News….and shoot me down if I make no logic or acceptable sense.

    Thank You

    • Your opinions are always welcome, but, this comment doesn’t seem feedback on Weekly News.

      Since this news.o.o site is for announcements and not a good place to discuss, you had better post this opinion again to -project mailing list, if you want to know others opinions. ;-)
