This is the current status for slipping the stable tag:
make seg-fault - fixed
Opera/Firefox stalls - fixed
TCP 'sent too much' panic - fixed
Installer update - done
ppbus init panic - fixed (gcc-3.4 bug)
(reported by Joroen Ruigrok/asmodai)
IPV4 connection problems - still diagnosing (probably SMP related)
(reported by Peter Avalos)
TCP Flooding issue - still diagnosing
(reported by Atte Peltomaki)
NFS TCP connection failure - still diagnosing
(reported by someone through Jeffrey Hsu)
The tag is going to be slipped today regardless. I expect the
remaining issues will be fixed fairly quickly (even more so if we can
get additional replication of the reported bugs).
Dodgy TCP/IP - or even the possibility of it - is a
'showstopper' to pushing this into a 'production' setting.
Can a 'blueprint' be assembled and posted with all
necessary environment, configuration, test procedures,
and necessary documentation of same, so that some of
us 'non-coders' can help with *relevant* tests?
I can put 4 to 8 servers onto it over the next 48 hours, but
am not sure where to start, what to look for, or what
coders need as output from the process in order to
isolate - and either fix or confirm as safe to ignore.
