Latest Fedora Core 3 status
Posted on: 10/21/2004 05:19 PM
Elliot Lee has posted a status update on Fedora Core 3
As of today, almost everything is frozen rock solid for FC3 - the only changes that should be going in from this point are fixes for showstopper(*) bugs, and kernel bug fixes.
Because a good amount of kernel work for FC3 happened after the FC3test3 release, the release of the final FC3 has been delayed to November 8. The extra time will be used only to give extra attention to the kernel, and to find any showstopper bugs in other parts of the distribution.
Please rigorously test kernel 2.6.9-1.640 from the development tree (http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/development/). Use it! Try to break it! Find big problems with it! File bug reports! And thanks for making sure that Fedora is as high quality as you want it to be.
Happy bug hunting,
(*) A showstopper bug is one that corrupts data storage or severly impacts the user's basic ability to install and use the system.
