What's happened to Debian's weekly-builds!

Postby TristanDee » 2009-11-05 04:37

There are no files under any of the sections! No files for downloading through torrent, jigdo or http.

The latest date of modification on http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/weekly-builds/i386/ is shown 02-Nov-2009. And it's Nov 5.

I was hoping to grab the latest weekly build, but the directories are just empty!

So, it is not before November 8 that we are getting the link up and running again?

To me, it seems a little awkward that they have just one person (or no replacement for that person) to look after the task!

To me, it seems a little dumb to download an image of a system whose packages change everyday.
The net and business card installers are available and daily updated.

Well, with slow net connections and unpredictable power supply like ours in Bangladesh, it's not as "dumb" an idea as you think. Net install isn't much convenient for us (I tried it once), because the loads of files that need to be downloaded before installing take a lot of time and also can get snapped anytime. Weekly build .iso IS our solution. I can always update the system on a daily basis.

I don't know if other distros have weekly builds. Ever since I've been using Linux, it's been Debian and Ubuntu, and the weekly builds of Debian to install.

Isn't it kind of strange they haven't yet got online?

It's more than two weeks now that the Debian weekly builds page has been blank! :(

Does anyone here have any idea what's happened?

Okay, they've started showing up! :D

Only, one strange thing. The first one or two images uploaded are KDE or XFCE+LXDE. No default Gnome yet. Hope that comes soon!

I always do a netinstall. Because I had these issues many times (empty download folders). And sometimes a weekly build image doesn't work, so then it would suck pretty bad to wait another week. A netinstall is the smoothest method.
Watch Zeitgeist: Moving Forward and see the system for what it is so we can move forward to a new one.
