digitalmars.D.bugs - d1.0blocker - anyone at home?

There have been a number of independent attempts to round up what is
needed before we are ready for 1.0:

- pending peeves
- various posts on the 'groups giving opinions on the criteria
- various posts on the 'groups criticising the amount of pretence that
1.0 is around the corner
- most recently, the d1.0blocker flag in Bugzilla.

However, it seems that nobody else, not even Walter, has caught on to
the fact that we have d1.0blocker.  So far, I'm the only one who's
nominated anything for d1.0blocker status.

We need more people to nominate 1.0 blockers - whether by nominating
existing issues filed in Bugzilla or by filing new issues and nominating
them.  Complier bugs that really need fixing, Phobos bugs that really
need fixing, corners of the spec waiting to be implemented, errors in
the spec, ambiguities in the spec, inconsistencies in the spec, bits of
the spec that that don't make sense, whatever else you can think of.

Come on - let's get nominating!

Stewart.

It looks like a special permission is needed to mark a bug as a d1.0blocker. I just tried it and it failed for me.

http://lists.puremagic.com/pipermail/digitalmars-d/2006-July/006681.html Are you trying to set the flag, or request it?

Ah, I now tried setting it to '?' and it worked. Thanks.

Now two other people have nominated d1.0blockers. Each of you has addressed the request to yourself. What's the point of this?

What is the point of this field? Shouldn't one hardcoded addres be allright? From where I should know who to addres it? Should it be you/Walter/anybody else? Sorry - I've just didn't get what is this field about and after little thinking I've just entered my email because I was forced to.

little thinking I've just entered my email because I was forced to.

I've edited the flag to hopefully change this behavior. The docs weren't terribly clear on what a few of the settings really meant. It should no longer ask for an email address. Walter has always been setup as a cc'ed person for every d1.0blocker flag request, so no worries there. Anyone can search for all bugs with the flag by clicking on the 'My Requests' link in the footer and then clearing the two email address fields. As with anything new, bugzilla is a bit of a learning experience. Later, Brad
