To:Arch Linux Release Engineering From:Richard N Subject:Re: [arch-releng] Errors with "AIF" in (daily) releng iso\'s ? Date:Fri, 23 Mar 2012 21:42:10 -0400
 

I'm sorry, but I'm NOT a developer, so I can NOT fix this for you,
especially if everything is just "blather" as you say.
But obviously, you guys can't fix these "latest" Netinstall/AIF issues
either, and/or, you obviously just don't see these constant "failures".
So, I will patiently wait for the next "Official/Stable" Release of Arch
Linux, including the next "Official/Stable" versions of Arch "Netinstall"...
And, until then, "archlinux-2011.08.19-netinstall-x86_64.iso" will have to
suit my purposes. It works flawlessly compared to these (daily)releng
headaches, and maybe that is the way it is. ?
I am very happy with the "STABLE"
"archlinux-2011.08.19-netinstall-x86_64.iso" - yes, and I may not ever need
anything more in my life.
Look, I understand this also involves so many different "departments"
within Arch, that "everything" eventually becomes hard to manage.
If that previous "link" I gave you, doesn't say enough ? then please, just
forget this, it really ain't worth the propoganda of dealing with any of
these "UNSTABLE" issues anymore, especially the politicaly-correct ->
"we're good - so it must be your bug-reporting that is wrong"
-advertisement ones. ?1
I wish I could really fix these obvious problems for you sir, but I can't,
it is what it is.
I also did not know that "AIF" is virtually alone in it's development. ?,
and that's according to these Arch Developers who have told me so on the
Arch forums, then again ? -off we go.
Like I said, I wish I was a Dev, but....?

If my "link" I gave to you is nothiong but "blather" as you say ?, then
lets face it, according to the "MANY" most obvious complaints regarding
the "failures" of ALL the latest releng/netinstall/aif's, then yours' SIR,
is also nuthin' but "blather" as well.

Good Day Sir(s).
