I’m looking at:
I disagree those 2 issues are as critical as implied in this thread, however I keep remembering that there are unreleased fixes in the tree that can cause updates (in metadata, or actual data) not to be picked up - which I don’t like despite being aware that my setup most likely won’t be affected (I don’t change permissions that often and I sincerely hope my applications don’t do dirty mtime hacks).
Personally I don’t mind running beta releases, I just feel like those two bugs would justify a release considering they are in the tree for nearly 4 months and that they could have medium impact for certain users.
Also, considering your limited time I think it’s unlikely that there will be interesting stuff committed to master in the next 2 months, so realistically if we wait for major features or additional bug fixes to justify a release, we are probably talking about a release in November/December.
It’s true though, other than those 2 issue I don’t see a lot of reason to release.
Like I said, I’m fine running beta, I did want to bring this up though.
