    Woody retrospective and Sarge introspective
    Submitted by robster on Saturday, July 27, 2002 – 09:39
    Sarge“The battle’s done, and we kinda won,
    So we sound our victory cheer:
    Where do we go from here?”

    Anthony “aj” Towns has posted this message to the debian-project mailing list (non-technical discussions) about where we’ve been (Woody’s testing) and where we’re going (Sarge’s testing). The innards of the Woody release cycle are picked apart and scavenged from; the juicy succulent bits are kept, the gristle is left as a reminder. He further goes on to discuss what he would like to see from Sarge’s testing including regular CD builds using jigdo, debian-installer and fun with multiple architectures. Aj suggests that: The way I would like to see sarge run is basically to get it to “roughly” releasable status ASAP then keep it there.

    Hello to all,
    Call me kooky,(if you must), but I’m looking to download the whole “shebang” of whatever I need- (1 or 2? CDs- worth) of Debian to do a 1st install. I’ve got a “56k” connection. I’ve never done an install before, and I’m currently under Windows98{tm}.
    I’m basically willing to wait the rather unreasonable amount of time it should take to download what I need. I can burn it to CD; got a plextor 8x + {roxio… } software.
    I have previously tried the Jigdo method to download, but whenever my connection would die, it seemed to start over from the beginning.
    I’m wondering if or not it is possible to downoad say the 1st Deb. CD in parts or not. I’d have to do it in parts, ’cause like someone else mentioned I can’t tie up my phone for days on end.
    Any help/ful info is greatly appreciated.
    Thanks– Shimmer44
    P.S.
    If ever I get that far, I’ll be looking to install it as a Dual- or Multi-boot OS. Any advice or links on that is/are appreciated as well.
