    Thanks, too many bad memories of that mailing list to actually subscribe to it.

    There seems to be a lot of extra noise on all of the Q/A mailing lists, it's to the point where I'm thinking about unsubscribing from all of them, as I'm getting tired of the continuing off-topic conversations that are filling up my inbox.

    I actually did that once

    In my case I can now only do one thing at a time if I want a better than 50% success rate, too much chatter just results in confusion.

    Are you sure it was Lubuntu QA?

    I had some problems at Lubuntu Users, but PhillW is a great listener and moderator at Lubuntu QA

    That said, if memory serves correctly, you're an Xubuntu fan - nothing at all wrong with that - but in my experience if we try to split our focus too much we end up doing a less than stellar job across the board

    I know this time I'm going to focus mostly on upgrades, then secondarily on i386 installs of Lubuntu and Ubuntu GNOME.

    Upgrade testing is incredibly time consuming and it's one of those things that is grossly under-tested.

    Since Dapper Drake Beta I've been burnt royally with upgrades so I don't do that any more. I've got a setup exec that does most of my customizations so a new install bootiing the zsync'd iso directly from the hard drive is quick and painless (if the iso isn't busted like a couple days ago). Also upgrades with a lot of orphan code and larger and larger logs result in a much fatter disk space used than new installs. So in the days of multi GB hard drives who cares about disk space? I've got three linux images plus archive library on this USB attached 80 GB SSD so multiple linux partitions do chew up space.

    That's all the more reason to test both upgrade processes and report any failures on the QA tracker

    Concerning Partial Upgrades

    I've noticed that using the Swedish server give me partial upgrades aplenty. this because the mirroring script it uses doesn't copy all the new files in one go, or something. Switching to upgrading from the main server solves that.

    I don't know if they fixed this because it's been a while since I used the swedish server.

    I noticed that final release for Saucy is October 17th. When the final ISO is released will it ever be updated or will there be a one time ISO dated October 17th?
    Just curious.

    The interim release iso's are never updated after release, as with any of the milestone releases, they are just a snapshot of the image at that particular time.
