Default Upcoming Point Releases

Hi,

we finally got target dates for the next point releases of both Lenny
and Squeeze. Lenny should get 5.0.9 on October 1st; Squeeze will follow
on October 8th with 6.0.3.

NEW for Lenny will be closed on the weekend of September 24th; NEW for
Squeeze on the weekend of October 1st.

The upload of debian-installer for Lenny should happen on the closing
weekend at the latest; the middle of week 38 would be appreciated, so
that we have everything together on the 24th.

For Squeeze it would be cool to have the kernel in for testing end of
next week (16/17th). The d-i upload should be there the middle of week
39, October 1st at the latest.

base-files can be uploaded now, as it will be held in NEW until closing
time anyway.

Kind regards and thanks for your efforts
Philipp Kern

I believe we're now ready to do the kernel update, having got most of
the security fixes done separately. I'm going to start a build now and
intend to upload tomorrow unless I hear any objection to this (or I find
a problem myself).

Nobody appears to have objected, and it was uploaded. I've just marked
the upload for acceptance at the next dinstall; thanks.

Adam

Unfortunately the upload FTBFS on several architectures.

The ia64 log contains a few "cast from pointer to integer of different
size" warnings, and dies with:

I also intend to upload an updated firmware-nonfree package (version
0.28+squeeze1):

* Add VIA VT6656 firmware for use with vt6656 driver

In Linux 2.6.32 this driver had embedded firmware; we removed that and
did not build the driver. In linux-2.6 version 2.6.32-31 (point release
6.0.1) we updated the driver to support external firmware and started
building it.

* Add Realtek RTL8105E-1 and RTL8168E-1/2/3 firmware for use with r8169

Some of the new chips supported by the updated r8169 driver in linux-2.6
version 2.6.32-36 should have these firmware patches.

A few such warnings are, regrettably, normal.

I understand and have fixes for both of these failures. Following those
changes I have successfully compiled all the modified drivers on the
ia64 and sparc porter boxes (but not attempted a complete package
rebuild).

We have a lenny security update about ready to release (just waiting
on a couple builds). I've merged those changes into the lenny branch and
I can upload an o-p-u build tomorrow (which I'll do, barring any
objection). This should allow for a d-i upload before the weekend. I
don't think a d-i upload is strictly necessary - we haven't added any
hardware support since the last point release - but it is probably
a good idea given the large number of changes since the last update.

I have not seen any bug reports against the previous 2.6.32-36, but we
need to fix the FTBFS on some architectures. I will build and upload
2.6.32-37 tomorow with fixes for those and a couple more bugs. Barring
serious regressions, this version should end up in the point release.

There was a regression in 2.6.32-36 (#643817) as a result of a security
fix (for CVE-2011-2699). It should not affect the installer. However,
I think we should get updated packages into the archive and on CDs.

I'm going to build and upload 2.6.32-38 with just that fix reverted,
unless anyone objects.
