Roadmap?

Hi everybody.
Debian 9.5 Buster is in Alpha3 status. Are there any plans for the next release of Bunsen? ("Neon" maybe?) wink


3D or not 3D, that is not anymore the question.

Re: Roadmap?

that's a very broad hint (i like the german expression better) but a valid question.

i think someone from the dev team said that "next time it's not going to take us so long".

"Neon" - isn't that already taken by some KDE distro?
also for a child of the eighties it has unbearable connotations.
do we have to go through the periodic table in order? or at all?

Why not? At least there is time to choose a new name system before reaching BL Oganesson (Z=118).

Well, I think that was sort of agreed on a couple of years ago, but if someone had a better idea, and people liked it, it could be changed.

Anyway, the next BL release will be called Lithium.

I thought 9.x are all Stretch? If this is correct, we are still months away from release. What are the considerations of rolling out something before Buster release (Especially considering low-security policy of Debian Testing)?

^We might be able to roll out a test version of Lithium before Buster's release, but as you say Debian Testing is not stable or secure enough for a regular workstation. The official BL Lithium will come after Buster's release, but hopefully not too long after this time.

We'll do our normal Release Candidate builds, of course.

KDE completely broke with a recent testing upgrade, sid is more stable at the moment. I expect more breakage in testing as packages get rushed in before the announced January freeze process begins.

I saw that as I just played with Testing in a VM. The missing packages  for Plasma still have not migrated to Testing AFAIK.
