Given Mikael's "new news",
and other's requests, I have "re-enabled" the "VALIDATE"
job on Hudson.
It immediately started with these "changes"
Oomph (late) Upgrade Buildship to 1.0.7
I would like to set a deadline of 12
Noon today (Eastern time). I think it will be a bit rushed, but believe
then we can still make M4 available on Friday, but, let's say we make the
repo and EPP packages available by 4 PM on Friday, instead of 10 AM on
Friday. I think that will give time for all the re-work, and sanity checks
by EPP Package maintainers and at the same time "get it over with"
before some start their end-of-year holidays.
Let me know if any of these times are
unreasonable or simply do not work due to timezone differences. (It is
too early in the morning for me to compute or look them up myself :) ...
not to mention, it depends on exactly who is effected and may need to "rebuild".)
But, unless you hear otherwise, that
is our revised plan.

Mac signing service issues -- plan for
M4 Sent by:
The signing issue is due to too much difference between
the system clock and the time stamping authority (and for some reason,
NTP does not work the mac signing machine). I manually synched the time
on the machine and the signing now works properly.
Given there is currently "no solution
in sight" for this week, I think the best course of action is to push
ahead, and produce M4 as planned, with affected projects disabling "Mac
Once we have that build "in hand", a) if the user experience
is "really bad", we can reconsider (but as far as know, if they
are doing fresh install, then they have to do that "open" or
"ctrl-open" trick we have used in the past -- that is, in the
past there has been milestones without a Mac signature. b) if enough people
are around next week, to redo contributions with Mac signed, we can do
an M4a deliverable.
But, in either case, since we are between a rock and a hard place, I think
best to try and produce one as planned. Otherwise, we might be well into
January before we could produce one, depending on everyone's holiday schedules.
