Was the apparently in-progress readline 8.0 rebase announced
somewhere? All I can recall seeing is , which said, 3.5 weeks ago,
that the rebase would happen "in a couple of weeks". But apparently
there is a side tag and builds are in progress.
That is the beauty of side tags. It doesn't break anything and allows
people to work on rebases without disturbing others.
I would have appreciated a heads-up on this. I chose this weekend,
when I get an extra day off of work, to do the big gap 4.10.0 and
sagemath 8.6 updates. But in between the bootstrap build of gap
4.10.0 and the final build of it, a readline rebuild, into the side
tag, happened. Now what am I supposed to do? Build the entire gap
and sagemath stacks into the side tag? When is the side tag going to
be merged back in? Some communication on this subject prior to
starting the builds would have been really helpful.
You can build everything as you do, when merging of readline tag will
happen -- it won't override your builds ;)
And then I'll rebuild sagemath / gap / whatsoever.
