Please, don't release before ready, but actually about half an hour
before that date would be more fun:

At 23:31:30 UTC on February 13, 2009, a celebration is expected as the
Unix time number reaches 1234567890 seconds. [1]

Cheers,

Johannes

you forgot [hidden email]. remember that producing final
live images requires:

  a) having network access to a mirror that has lenny final through http

  b) me having about 8 to 12 hours of time to actually put all the
     images and flavours together.

  c) let sledge mirror them to cdimage.debian.org (it's about ~50gb)

thank you for your cooperation.

Regards,
Daniel

As someone noted on debian-italian, one second later would be just as cool:

$ factor 1234567891
1234567891: 1234567891

(i.e. it's a prime number)

>From my quick check, these events don't seem to be so rare:

$ for i in $(seq 1234567890 $[1234567890+3600]); \
  do factor $i; done |grep ": 12345" |wc

shows that there are 163 prime numbers within the hour after 1234567890.

On the other hand, there have been a few announcements to celebrate
1234567890.

Just to clarify: we've checked with key people if the date would be ok
and if they could coordinate with the people actually doing things.

Does that mean lenny has to be stable already or would lenny (testing)
not changing anymore be enough?

I guess it means not changing anymore.

I plan to stop testing migration after Thursday's last run, does anyone
see a problem with that (apart from everything needing to be ready at
that time)?

Anyway, if you need/want to build the images after the actual release
that will mean earliest Saturday afternoon and more probably Saturday
evening/Sunday.

>   c) let sledge mirror them to cdimage.debian.org (it's about ~50gb)

I hope that would be similar to the other CD images, so would not cause
much additional overhead?

> thank you for your cooperation.

Likewise!

Cheers

Luk

for the records: since from an organizational point of view, the
live-team does not fit (resp. was not allowed/welcomed to fit) under
another umbrella, you do have to contact us directly and not through
someone 'above'.

live images do contain in their default builds, for convencience
reasons, the apt indices (/var/lib/apt/lists/*). this allows, that a
user can install a package in a running live system without needing to
do an apt-update.

given that we're using the codenames everwhere and not the suite names,
we could build the live images even against an unreleased lenny mirror.

however, for cosmetic reasons, it would be nicer to build them against
final lenny. otherwise the release files on lenny final images would
claim it's testing (without any other technical consequence) which feels
 akward.

that would be nice.

Daniel

Sure, sounds better.

Cool. I'll be doing builds during Saturday; let's co-ordinate as we go
so that we can release as quickly as possible.

i'll be online the whole weekend, so best would be if someone would ping
me on irc when i can start the builds. once they are finished, i'll let
steve know where to sync them like i did the last times.
