Thread: Next Ubuntu to be delayed a month and a half?

  1. #1

    Next Ubuntu to be delayed a month and a half?

    Personally I would support this move, provided efforts are made to get the next release cycle back on track. It's worth postponing the ship date if the product truly needs work.

    I'm writing to propose a six week delay in the release date of Dapper,
    in order to do additional validation, certification, localisation, and
    polish. I would like to call for a community "town hall" meeting on
    Tuesday 14th March - once at 09:00 UTC (for the Aussies and Asian
    communities) and then again at 18:00 UTC (for Europe and the Americas).
    The meetings will be in #ubuntu-meeting on Based on
    feedback at those meetings, we will ask the Tech Board and the Community
    Council to take a view on the proposal, and announce the decision by the
    end of the week.
    I was standing in the park wondering why Frisbees got bigger as they get closer. Then it hit me.

    And this was handed down by the big cheese himself, Mark Shuttleworth, I guess they are going to delay. I don't mind, its not like there are glaring problems that need to be corrected. Just take some extra time, polish it up and release a great product. There are a couple of software companies that do things like that and they never fail to please.
