The Mars.1 release is now officially delayed
until October 2, 10 AM.
If not obvious, this means all participants
in "coordinated release train" should not make your releases
visible on 9/25, but wait until 10/2 10 AM to make them visible, and announce
your official releases.
As readers of this list are aware, a
bug was found, that many thought deserved to delay the release, and re-spin
the repository, and rebuild the EPP packages.
Thanks to all who made constructive
comments. And, to those finding the bug(s) and especially to those providing
the correct fix! I've also asked for a less discussed
bug to be fixed, which is "simply" to remove a duplicate bundle
(but, it is a low level one, and can cause problems with "invalid
loader constraints at run time). The two bugs are discussed and documented
Bug 478054- Eclipse does not prompt for workspace any more after installing Buildship,
and Bug 477148- Contribute JSch 0.1.53 rather than 0.1.51 to Mars.1
I've created a branch, named Mars_maintenance.1,
pointed all contributions in that branch to pull from our "final build
candidate", and am doing a test build now of that "identical"
build. Just to confirm the process. I've asked the projects with fixes
to submit their updates to that branch, and will build that repo
later tonight (assuming everyone is in a nearby timezone).
I'd estimate the final repo (with changes)
will be available late tonight or early tomorrow, the EPP packages shortly
after, and then we'll have another "quiet week" to confirm all
