I am going to synchronize the DragonFly_Stable tag to HEAD tonight.
Normally I would call for any last minute work to get in before we slip,
but in fact it isn't all that big a deal since the tag can be slipped at
any time anyway :-) I have successfully built the world and built and
tested a CD snapshot and the system seems reasonably stable. While there
are still some known VFS issues they cannot be resolved until the
remainder of the VFS work is completed so I'm not going to let it hold
I've generated a new snapshot of HEAD, dfly-20041025-current.iso.gz,
which includes the last day or two's uncommitted patch sets as well.
It should propogate overnight. All in all, things look pretty good and
it is a good time to wash away some of the uncertainty of the last
To the installer folks: There is no need to rush the new pxe server
feature. When you guys feel its ready and roll a new dist we can update
It is my intention to produce a new official 'stable' snapshot by the
end of the week.
