Bullseye freeze

Winter is coming:
he freeze for bullseye will happen according to the following timeline:
  • 2021-01-12 - Milestone 1 - Transition and (build-)essentials Freeze
  • 2021-02-12 - Milestone 2 - Soft Freeze
  • 2021-03-12 - Milestone 3 - Hard Freeze - for key packages and packages without autopkgtests
  • TBA - Milestone 4 - Full Freeze

See also https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-a ... 00002.html & https://release.debian.org/bullseye/freeze_policy.html

And the name for the next testing branch after bookworm (which will eventually become Debian 13) is trixie.

Thanks Head_on_a_Stick.
Apparently KDE devs are trying to get Plasma 5.20 in before the freeze. Fingers crossed! 5.19 was recently included.

The transition freeze has started:

For anybody with AMD graphics note that the backlight restore mechanism is broken:

https://github.com/systemd/systemd/issues/16600

I'm using a terrible hack to cope with this:
Code: Select all
# systemctl edit systemd-backlight@backlight:amdgpu_bl0.service

Then:
Code: Select all
[Service]
ExecStart=
ExecStart=/bin/cp /var/backlight_level /sys/class/backlight/amdgpu_bl0/brightness
ExecStop=
ExecStop=/bin/cp /sys/class/backlight/amdgpu_bl0/brightness /var/backlight_level

It's nasty but it works.
