Community, Thank you to all the machine maintainers and volunteers that have helped during the freeze. We have status for all the machines for the 2.16 release. We have only 4 issues with the 2.16 milestone in bugzilla. These issues are important, but they are not regressions, each is a long-standing issues with glibc. I will be working to fix these quickly and backport the fixes to 2.16.1. Given that the goal is to produce time-boxed releases I propose that we release 2.16 as soon as possible and stay on schedule. The next steps are: * [1 week] Between June 25th-29th I will tag and branch master after any last minute tweaks. - This process now includes folding ports back into the glibc repo. * The release will be made on the first week of July. * Find a volunteer release manager for 2.17. Comments? For anyone following along I'm updating the wiki as I roll through the release process: http://sourceware.org/glibc/wiki/Release Cheers, Carlos.
