Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

Q: Except for the fact that woody has
slipped far behind schedule (as, however, predicted by AJ Towns,
the release manager), how do you think it's going?
A: Well, I think it's going well considering we
are impementing an entirely new release process with testing. Most
developers are used to frozen being a milestone which switches them
into release mode. We don't have this right now, so the light at
the end of the tunnel is a little dimmer, so to speak. I think it
will be a learning process until after Woody hits the CD vendors,
and it will obviously take an extra amount of time.
Q: Then there's the issue that always manages
to flare up - New Maintainer. It's been 5 months since this last
flared up (which involved yours truly). How do you think the
process is going, given the recent controversy?
