MX-16 Community Repository forum?

#1 Postby Jerry3904 » Sat Nov 05, 2016 9:32 am

I just made a package request and noticed that there is no MX-16 subforum. It seems we have 2 choices:

1) Create a new subforum "Package Requests/Status - MX-16"
2) Rename current "Package Requests/Status - MX-15" to something like "Package Requests/Status - MX-15/16" (my pref if possible).

Action step?
Production: 4.7.0-0.bpo.1-amd64, MX-15 RC1, AMD FX-4130 Quad-Core, GeForce GT 630/PCIe/SSE2, 8 GB, Kingston SSD 120 GB and WesternDigital 1TB
Testing: AAO 722: 3.16-0-4-686-pae. MX-15, AMD C-60 APU, 4 GB

I can do that. Any objections to 2? That would be my preference as well.

How about a Nr 3 : Package Requests/Status MX

No package numbers, then it does not need another update in the future ?

With the MX release number it is easy for the users to know which packages are available for which release because we aren't always able to backport packages for all versions of MX.

Yes, how quickly we forget the Wheezy-based MX 14. :p 15-16 are going to be pretty much the same, though.
