Release Critical Bug report for Week 51

1 Comment

Real life has been interesting as of late; as you can see, I didn't post bug stats last week. If you have specific data from last Friday, please let me know and I will update.

The UDD bugs interface currently knows about the following release critical bugs:

  • In Total: 1095 (Including 179 bugs affecting key packages)
    • Affecting Jessie: 189 (key packages: 117) That's the number we need to get down to zero before the release. They can be split in two big categories:
      • Affecting Jessie and unstable: 134 (key packages: 90) Those need someone to find a fix, or to finish the work to upload a fix to unstable:
        • 32 bugs are tagged 'patch'. (key packages: 24) Please help by reviewing the patches, and (if you are a DD) by uploading them.
        • 13 bugs are marked as done, but still affect unstable. (key packages: 9) This can happen due to missing builds on some architectures, for example. Help investigate!
        • 89 bugs are neither tagged patch, nor marked done. (key packages: 57) Help make a first step towards resolution!
      • Affecting Jessie only: 55 (key packages: 27) Those are already fixed in unstable, but the fix still needs to migrate to Jessie. You can help by submitting unblock requests for fixed packages, by investigating why packages do not migrate, or by reviewing submitted unblock requests.
        • 29 bugs are in packages that are unblocked by the release team. (key packages: 11)
        • 26 bugs are in packages that are not unblocked. (key packages: 16)

How do we compare to the Squeeze release cycle?

Colorado Sued By Neighboring States Over Legal Pot

1 Comment
SternisheFan notes that Nebraska and Oklahoma are suing Colorado over marijuana legalization. The attorneys general of Nebraska and Oklahoma sued Colorado in the U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday, arguing state-legalized marijuana from Colorado is improperly spilling across state lines. The suit invokes the federal government's right to regulate both drugs and interstate commerce, and says Colorado's decision to legalize marijuana has been "particularly burdensome" to police agencies on the other side of the state line. In June, USA TODAY highlighted the flow of marijuana from Colorado into small towns across Nebraska: felony drug arrests in Chappell, Neb., just 7 miles north of the Colorado border have skyrocketed 400% in three years. "In passing and enforcing Amendment 64, the state of Colorado has created a dangerous gap in the federal drug control system enacted by the United States Congress. Marijuana flows from this gap into neighboring states, undermining plaintiff states' own marijuana bans, draining their treasuries, and placing stress on their criminal justice systems," says the lawsuit. "The Constitution and the federal anti-drug laws do not permit the development of a patchwork of state and local pro-drug policies and licensed distribution schemes throughout the country which conflict with federal laws."

Fair and impartial justice for all Americans

1 Comment
The Department of Justice issued a memo today (pdf) stating that the litigation concerning gender identity employment discrimination regarding transgender Americans working in the federal government will be covered under the sex discrimination prohibition in Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Attorney General Eric Holder writes, "the Department will no longer assert that Title VII's prohibition against discrimination based on sex does not encompass gender identity per se (including transgender discrimination)."

Public sector workers who are gay are already protected against discrimination on the basis of their sexual orientation.

DIY DSOXLAN

1 Comment

Let's say you have a DSO-X 2000 or 3000 series oscilloscpe and you're not super keen on paying about 300 euros for the brand-name DSOXLAN module to enable the Ethernet port it already essentially has on board. No worries, just build yourself this DIY DSOXLAN module! The most expensive part of this build is the 8 euro magjack Ethernet connector.
