    Re: Pidgin 2.0 Released!!

    Won't this be included into the Feisty updates?
    Yes, probably will show up in about a week.

    Why does it take so long? Some people try to say that repositories is a plus for ubuntu, but having to wait forever after new software is released is not a plus. It's a minus.

    its because they check the software out, test it, make sure malicious code hasnt been added, and make sure that all the dependencies and build options are set up correctly

    and if its going to be included in the repos as an update (from gaim 2.0 beta 6 to pidgin 2.0) then ill just wait for the update to come through.

    lol, waiting forever. try debian stable if you want to wait forever. software for the repositories must be tested and approved. you can't just add something because of security issues.

    No it's not. You made a deb in less than a day. So if you can do it, why does it take canonical a week?

    tested specifically for what, and why does this testing take a week?

    at first they got the source. they must check the sourcecode for eventual added malware etc.

    then they build the debs for several architectures, add all the deps, they need to test the debs if they really work on every machine and not just on their ownv test if there are memory or security holes. ok now you got the debs. these debs must be put on all the repo servers.

    now they have to check all the md5 checksums of every single package on every single server.

    if all went well it's in the list of the software you can download.
