Description Andreas K. Hüttel archtester gentoo-dev 2020-03-15 16:24:23 UTC
No talking please.
Comment 1 Andreas K. Hüttel archtester gentoo-dev 2020-04-18 16:40:24 UTC
Adding 2.29-r8 here too, to get it out of the way
Comment 2 Andreas K. Hüttel archtester gentoo-dev 2020-04-23 07:50:44 UTC
Arches please test and stabilize:


Notes on the two versions:


This version is largely identical to current stable. It contains precisely two changes:
* an important bugfix (only) for sparc
* the move from stack-protector=all to stack-protector=strong, recommended by glibc upstream

As such, even though few users will have tried this version, it should be unproblematic.

There may be test failures, but please *only* have them block anything if they are regressions compared to current stable (2.29-r7).


True version bump. See $URL for the upstream release notes, and also
All blockers that we know of are fixed.

The test suite should pass on amd64. 
On other arches, your mileage may vary (please also see the upstream release notes).
