Any idea of a release schedule for this?
This is simply a request for info, not to apply pressure! It will allow
us to plan a transistion.
We have one or two niggles with 2.2.0. For instance, I understand that
post-2.2.0 work has improved tdb-recovery after SEGVs (as well as removing
at least one SEGV cause).
We also have some apparent oplock-related problems (a black art to us on
Solaris): if we're going to have to get our debugging hands mucky (we'd
rather not), then we'd rather be doing so on a path for the future.
So we're not after optimism, but rather realism, in requesting this
estimate. Even a mildly depressing "at least two months, probably four"
would nevertheless be a reasonable answer for us deciding how to proceed
[ We are a major production site, so large-scale dabbling with CVS is not
an option for us at all. On the other hand, applying a targeted patch is
certainly an option (we have already applied the 2.2.0 "NFS quotas" patch
from 27th April), and we have even occasionally put beta versions (and a
prayer!) into production. ]
