Description Alexander Tsoy 2017-10-01 00:17:42 UTC
Please stabilize sys-boot/syslinux-6.03. Needed for sys-libs/glibc-2.25-r5 stabilization.

Or alternatively backport fix to 5.10.

Ping - any news here?
Comment 2 Chí-Thanh Christopher Nguyễn gentoo-dev 2017-10-16 07:38:44 UTC
I don't think 6.03 is fit for stabilization, it contains a number of regressions relative to 5.10.

Stablizing 6.04_pre1 would be better. Feel free to CC: arches as you see fit.
Comment 3 Andreas K. Hüttel archtester gentoo-dev 2017-10-17 20:11:16 UTC
Please stabilize sys-boot/syslinux-6.04_pre1 for amd64 and x86
Comment 4 Manuel Rüger (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2017-10-24 14:30:24 UTC
Stable on amd64
Comment 5 Thomas Deutschmann gentoo-dev Security 2017-10-27 09:55:41 UTC
x86 stable

Last arch, closing!
