I've started our release announcement at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Xubuntu/KarmicKoala/Release



It still needs a lot of work. Once the release occurs, Vincent (or another website editor) will copy the contents of the page to the website.

No, we are lacking these as well as the release artwork. I'll try to

come up with something for tomorrow regarding the artwork.

Great, thanks!

Unfortunately our sprint for the Karmic release hasn't been as good as

one might have hoped for. To be honest, I think there are several

glitches we just let go in Karmic, because nothing as magical as with

Jaunty happened this time. Maybe it was time to keep a quieter release

after our fantastic 9.04!

I agree with this assessment. Some releases are more noisy and energetic then others. Its also true that there are a few bugs that I would have liked to have gotten fixed and which will probably be SRU candidates. All around including the other derivatives I think karmic introduces a lot of great features, great bug fixes, but also introduces a number of feature regressions and new bugs. This is necessary to make progress unfortunately.



Lastly, I think we've come closer together as a team and have learned how to better work with each other. Theres a lot of value to that and I think Lucid will be an absolutely amazing LTS release as a result.



Cheers,

Could you ask him to have it point to http://xubuntu.org/news/karmic/release? That's where we usually put them. (And I hope I'll publish it on time.)

Just for the record, the link Jim gave actually matches the url pattern we used for 9.04: http://xubuntu.org/news/9.04-release

We should use http://xubuntu.org/news/9.10-release instead of http://xubuntu.org/news/karmic/release as "karmic" is the development name and isn't used after release.

I will change the release announcement back to the original format on
the Ubuntu release announcement.

We need to put a statement in the release notes that anyone short on
RAM or disk space should use the alternate cd to install Xubuntu 9.10.
The reason for this is that the latest rebuild of the Xubuntu 9.10
Desktop cd installs OpenOffice.org completely now when it pulls in the
language packs.

This is not going to be good for anyone short of RAM or disk space.

Actually, http://xubuntu.org/news/jaunty/release also worked

I am looking at the mirrors and ports, and it looks to me like we have
release of the powerpc and ps3 port for karmic.

If this is the case, can we update the website to show it? The website
shows right now under the mirrors:

"PowerPC and Playstation 3(TM) users, please see
http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/xubuntu/ports/releases/jaunty/release/ "

I think we should change that to :

"PowerPC and Playstation 3(TM) users, please see
http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/xubuntu/ports/releases/karmic/release/ "

The link was updated but the text was not. Fixed.
