I've been thinking about how we can avoid getting bugs like the libxcb
update mess into stable grimoires. Here's what I came up with, which
I'll implement for stable-0.39 to test how it goes.
- there will be 2 chroots for stable-rc testing, the current one, and
one with a basic kde4 and gnome2 desktop installed
- both chroots should update without major issues to the new stable-rc
- major issues is anything that is not fixed automatically either
during the sorcery system-update or an additional cleanse --fix
For the next stable release after 0.39, I would like to add additional
tests for updates from two releases back. I.e. an update to stable-rc
0.40 shall work in both chroots both from stable-0.38 and stable-0.39.
At least I have often not updated one of my boxes in one month, and
I think we should support updating from the previous stable and the
stable before that.
