The tagging for LFS-7.4 is now complete.
There are 4 normal priority tickets left:
wireshark - new today and I'll update that today.
posgresql - ken is working this
xterm - new version today. Igor, do you want to do this?
cups-filters - fernando, can you do this?
We haven't been listing ImageMagick, but we are at 6.8.6-6 and current
is 6.8.6-9. Do we want to do this now or wait until 6.8.7?
We are holding on BlueZ-5.1, Lua-5.2.2, and FFmpeg-2.0 because the most
recent versions are not compatible with packages in the book.
The question now is how to handle a BLFS-7.4 release. We can get the
current 4 (or 5) packages incorporated in a day or two, but new versions
of packages will keep coming. I can tag a 7.4 version, make a few
editorial updates and call it BLFS-7.4. That can be done pretty much
Or we can do a -rc for a week with a package freeze.
Or call for comments now, continue updating, and do a tag in a week or so.
Or something else.
What's the best way to go?
