no problem. Just wanted to make sure, was the patch perfect for you? Please let me know if I can improve anything.
actually i'm not good with applying patches from mails. i just edited the file myself manually and committed. but your workflow looks ok.
Git workflow - what do I do after I have sent you the patch - can I delete it?
yes. but please send patches to the mailing list.
My next step is to build an updated iso for virtualbox to test: Latest packages, aif - newer version (latest patches) added to extra? updated memtest86+ more packages to packages.list: ntp, ssmtp
personally i just build a recent iso once, then i get aif-experimental-git from AUR, extract it, bring up networking, install git and makepkg, and make a snapshot in virtualbox. then everytime i want to play, i load the snapsnot, makepkg and install the package.
official releases are quite infrequent, you have to use the above method if you want the latest fixes.
Do you know when aaron will update archiso - as per his email to the arch-dev mailing list?
I will send through a list of ideas for lots of little improvements for the interactive installer. Where you thinking doing a general release soon?
I did one on april 8/9. see http://www.archlinux.org/pipermail/arch-releng/2009-April/000495.html
when there are enough fixes in experimental, i do a new release. (this will happen one or more times before the new iso release)
Please send your list to the ML.
