Just a heads-up to say that the last few issues have been dealt with
and it looks like we're on target for a July 25th, 18:00 PDT (Pacific
Daylight Time) tag and (as soon as that's finished) release operation.
I'll be putting the i386 and alpha bits together throughout the night
and will be shooting for some FTPable / ISO image bits on ftp.freebsd.org
by early morning (the 26th).
I've attempted to send a couple of messages to stable during
the past few days, but the upgrade to 4.1 RC0 nuked my
sendmail.cf; therefore my address rewriting rules are gone and I
imagine the messages were quietly round-filed as a result.
I've seen a couple of problems with some of the ports, one of
which was caused by a recent commit in /src/sys/net/if_var.h. Here is
1. GIMP does not compile. It fails while trying to build
libgnomeui in the gnomelibs package. I've already filed a PR
2. VMWare does not compile. It fails in vmnet, tripping over
the altered signature to ether_ifattach() in the
newly-committed /src/sys/net/if_var.h. If you look at the
diff, you'll see that an extra int parameter has been added.
And, of course, the deletion of my sendmail.cf was rather annoying,
but I can fix that easily enough.
I don't think that either of these are showstoppers, but item #2
is rather troubling to those people who use VMWare heavily--especially
when they're beset by those lost souls who push Linux all the
I have not yet filed a PR for the VMWare problem. I thought I
might try to cook up a patch first, if I can find some time.
