12:49 Topic for #onionsketch is now The State of the Onion | 5.17.6 on November 20
13:00 rjbs Good morning, #onionsketch.
13:03 rjbs So, 5.17.6 today, probably tonight.
13:04 rjbs I do not need to get up with RT or PAUSE permissions. :-)
13:04 rjbs This release includes the hash rework and the debugger refactoring, along with Unicode changes and some other good stuff.
13:05 rjbs The big question is, "What about HP-UX being broken?"
13:05 rjbs It looks like /wii mauke
13:05 rjbs ha
13:06 rjbs It looks like mauke (iirc) has a reasonable-sounding answer for what the problem is.
13:06 rjbs So I'd love if that works out and we can avoid talk about a release that doesn't build.
13:06 rjbs We've released blead-point before with significant problems that would get fixed a day later.  I'm not worried about setting a precedent that HP-UX is not important.  The precedent, rather, is that timed releases are the important thing.
13:07 rjbs We would not, on the other hand, release a broken-on-HP-UX blead-final!
13:07 rjbs ...because those are quality-boxed, not timed-boxed.
13:21 rjbs Well, having heard nothing else from the gallery, I'm going to wander off more formally, but I will be around all day.
