Titel: A (very rough) scheduling of the releases  BeitragVerfasst am: 03.10.2006, 23:27 Uhr

Hi everybody,
there are many obvious reasons for a Kanotix user to know in advance when more or less the next official version of Kanotix will be released. Let me add that some of us are interested in remastering Kanotix; in my case, I want to do it to well fit with the needs of my students, then I wish to know whether it's better to wait the next release or not before working on the remaster.
On the other hand, there are many obvious reasons for the Kanotix developers to not do any promise about the release-time.

I agree that Kanotix should be released when it's ready and not before, but in my opinion an agreement is possible. I think that it should be enough to write somewhere a file where there are the main plans of the developers (for instance, we wait for the next version of KDE, we must fix something in the installer, etc.) and at the end a very rough indication of the release time (for instance, in at most 2 months even when the developers know that 2 weeks should be enough).

What do you think about this idea?

Thanks,
ciao,
Ugo

Ugo, I don't think the developers will commit themselves in this manner as Debian sid is notoriously unstable. It's a different story with Ubuntu. They seem to have the manpower to finish a new release every six months even if this requires patching many software packages.

But you can ask Kano on IRC about his release plans for 2006-01. Maybe OpenOffice is the only major package that's still missing.

Just to add my idea: the main release is a Live-CD which means it cannot be patched tomorrow. Quality for a milestone release therefore seems to me more important than a release schedule.

For us HD-installers the thing is different, we all twist our boxes anyway: dist-upgrading, using possibilities of Debian, using new developments by the Kanotix-team all the time. So it is not very relevant if I install an RC3 or an RC4 today, it might be something completely different (TM) by tomorrow anyway.
