my idea of next ISO with .21 kernel and for Linuxtag 2007:
- pacman3 should be on it, aaron when you move it in?
- release it like 0.8 with base,current and ftp till SCM and core move has
been done in summer.
- 0.8 will die, what was the consensus: 05-2007 <cool-snapshotname>?
rc.sysinit and arch-release should contain this consensus then.
- ftp server need to be prepared for this then
anything else i missed?
cool-snapshot name, any suggestion?
We have now 1-2 weeks or so until final ISO should be built.
