The first 12 days and 408 unblock requests into the Jessie freeze

The release team receives an extreme amount of unblock requests right now.  For the past 22 days[1], we have been receiving no less than 408 unblock/ageing requests.  That is an average of ~18.5/day.  In the same period, the release team have closed 350 unblocks requests, averaging 15.9/day.

This number does not account for number of unblocks, we add without a request, when we happen to spot when we look at the list of RC bugs[2]. Nor does it account for unblock requests currently tagged “moreinfo”, of which there are currently 25.

All in all, it has been 3 intensive weeks for the release team.  I am truly proud of my fellow team members for keeping up with this for so long!  Also a thanks to the non-RT members, who help us by triaging and reviewing the unblock requests!  It is much appreciated. 🙂

Random bonus info:

  • d (our diffing tool) finally got colordiff support during the Release Sprint last week.  Prior to that, we got black’n’white diffs!
    • ssh coccia.debian.org -t /srv/release.debian.org/tools/scripts/d
    • Though coccia.debian.org do not have colordiff installed right now.  I have filed a request to have it installed.
  • The release team have about 132 (active) unblock hints deployed right now in our hint files.

[1] We started receiving some in the 10 days before the freeze as people realised that their uploads would need an unblock to make it into Jessie.
