That's the RC1 dated Thu, 1 Dec 2005 -- 03:37 (UTC)
Please post "pass, fail" notes here by noon
on Thursday (eastern time).
Especially please verify recent "blockers" remain
fixed and no regressions on the
main paths. In other words, that this build can be used
for in-depth testing
to verify its readiness for release.
For more on "smoke tests" see
I just thought some guy here at work made it up! ... I
need to get out more :)
I have suspened all builds, please release nothing in
case we need to re-spin for
some blocking regression. After that ... the new release
rules will apply.
