The naming wars continue...

Ok,
Linux-2.6.10-rc1 is out there for your pleasure.

I thought long and hard about the name of this release (*), since one of
the main complaints about 2.6.9 was the apparently release naming scheme.

Should it be "-rc1"? Or "-pre1" to show it's not really considered release
quality yet? Or should I make like a rocket scientist, and count _down_
instead of up? Should I make names based on which day of the week the
release happened? Questions, questions..

And the fact is, I can't see the point. I'll just call it all "-rcX",
because I (very obviously) have no clue where the cut-over-point from
"pre" to "rc" is, or (even more painfully obviously) where it will become
the final next release.

So to not overtax my poor brain, I'll just call them all -rc releases, and
hope that developers see them as a sign that there's been stuff merged,
and we should start calming down and seeing to the merged patches being
stable soon enough..

So without any further ado, here's 2.6.10-rc1 in testing. A fair number of
patches that were waiting for 2.6.9 to be out are in here, ranging all
over the map: merges from -mm, network (and net driver) updates, SATA
stuff, bluetooth, SCSI, device models, janitorial, you name it.

Oh, and the _real_ name did actually change. It's not Zonked Quokka any
more, that's so yesterday. Today we're Woozy Numbat! Get your order in!

Linus

(*) In other words, I had a beer and watched TV. Mmm... Donuts.

Anton Altaparmakov:
o NTFS: Implement extent mft record deallocation
o NTFS: Splitt runlist related functions off from attrib.[hc] to
runlist.[hc]
o NTFS: Add vol->mft_data_pos and initialize it at mount time
o NTFS: Rename init_runlist() to ntfs_init_runlist(),
ntfs_vcn_to_lcn() to ntfs_rl_vcn_to_lcn(),
decompress_mapping_pairs() to ntfs_mapping_pairs_decompress() and
adapt all callers.
o NTFS: Forgot to lock the mft bitmap when clearing the bit in
ntfs_extent_mft_record_free().
o NTFS: Add fs/ntfs/runlist.[hc]::ntfs_get_nr_significant_bytes(),
ntfs_get_size_for_mapping_pairs(), ntfs_write_significant_bytes(),
and ntfs_mapping_pairs_build(), adapted from libntfs.
o NTFS: Rename ntfs_merge_runlists() to ntfs_runlists_merge()
o NTFS: - Add fs/ntfs/lcnalloc.h::ntfs_cluster_free_from_rl() which
is a static inline wrapper for ntfs_cluster_free_from_rl_nolock()
which takes the cluster bitmap lock for the duration of the call.
o NTFS: Add fs/ntfs/attrib.[hc]::ntfs_attr_record_resize()
o NTFS: Implement the equivalent of memset() for an ntfs attribute in
fs/ntfs/attrib.[hc]::ntfs_attr_set() and switch
fs/ntfs/logfile.c::ntfs_empty_logfile() to using it.
o NTFS: Remove unnecessary casts from LCN_* constants
o NTFS: Implement fs/ntfs/runlist.c::ntfs_rl_truncate_nolock()
o NTFS: Add MFT_RECORD_OLD as a copy of MFT_RECORD in
fs/ntfs/layout.h and change MFT_RECORD to contain the NTFS 3.1+
specific fields.
o NTFS: Add some debugging checks to fs/ntfs/inode.c::ntfs_truncate()
and fix a typo in fs/ntfs/layout.h.
o NTFS: Add a helper function
fs/ntfs/aops.c::mark_ntfs_record_dirty() which marks all buffers
belonging to an ntfs record dirty, followed by marking the page the
ntfs record is in dirty and also marking the vfs inode containing
the ntfs record dirty (I_DIRTY_PAGES).
o NTFS: Switch fs/ntfs/index.h::ntfs_index_entry_mark_dirty() to
using the new helper fs/ntfs/aops.c::mark_ntfs_record_dirty() and
remove the no longer needed
fs/ntfs/index.[hc]::__ntfs_index_entry_mark_dirty().
o NTFS: - Move ntfs_{un,}map_page() from ntfs.h to aops.h and fix
resulting include errors.
o NTFS: Remove unused {__,}format_mft_record() from fs/ntfs/mft.c
o NTFS: - Modify fs/ntfs/mft.c::__mark_mft_record_dirty() to use the
helper mark_ntfs_record_dirty() which also changes the behaviour in
that we now set the buffers belonging to the mft record dirty as
well as the page itself.
o NTFS: Update fs/ntfs/inode.c::ntfs_write_inode() to also use the
helper mark_ntfs_record_dirty() and thus to set the buffers
belonging to the mft record dirty as well as the page itself.
o NTFS: Fix warnings on x86-64. (Randy Dunlap with slight
modification from me)
o NTFS: Add fs/ntfs/mft.c::try_map_mft_record() which fails with
-EALREADY if the mft record is already locked and otherwise behaves
the same way as fs/ntfs/mft.c::map_mft_record().
o NTFS: Modify fs/ntfs/mft.c::write_mft_record_nolock() so that it
only writes the mft record if the buffers belonging to it are
dirty.
o NTFS: Attempting to write outside initialized size is _not_ a bug
so remove the bug check from
fs/ntfs/aops.c::ntfs_write_mst_block(). It is in fact required to
write outside initialized size when preparing to extend the
initialized size.
o NTFS: Map the page instead of using page_address() before writing
to it in fs/ntfs/aops.c::ntfs_mft_writepage().
o NTFS: Provide exclusion between opening an inode / mapping an mft
record and accessing the mft record in
fs/ntfs/mft.c::ntfs_mft_writepage() by setting the page not
uptodate throughout ntfs_mft_writepage().
o NTFS: Big cleanup of mft record writing code
o NTFS: - Fix two race conditions in
fs/ntfs/inode.c::ntfs_put_inode()
o NTFS: Modify fs/ntfs/aops.c::mark_ntfs_record_dirty() to no longer
take the ntfs inode as a parameter as this is confusing and
misleading and the ntfs inode is available via
NTFS_I(page->mapping->host).
o NTFS: Modify fs/ntfs/mft.c::write_mft_record_nolock() and
fs/ntfs/aops.c::ntfs_write_mst_block() to only check the dirty
state
o NTFS: Move the static inline ntfs_init_big_inode() from
fs/ntfs/inode.c to inode.h and make
fs/ntfs/inode.c::__ntfs_init_inode() non-static and add a
declaration for it to inode.h. Fix some compilation issues that
resulted due to #includes and header file interdependencies.
o NTFS: Simplify setup of i_mode in
fs/ntfs/inode.c::ntfs_read_locked_inode()
o NTFS: Add helpers fs/ntfs/layout.h::MK_MREF() and MK_LE_MREF()
o NTFS: Modify fs/ntfs/mft.c::map_extent_mft_record() to only verify
the mft record sequence number if it is specified (i.e. not zero).
o NTFS: Add fs/ntfs/mft.[hc]::ntfs_mft_record_alloc() and various
helper functions used by it.
o NTFS: 2.1.21 release
o NTFS: Update Documentation/filesystems/ntfs.txt with instructions
on how to use the Device-Mapper driver with NTFS ftdisk/LDM raid.
This removes the linear raid problem with the Software RAID / MD
driver when one

It's not only Linux which has this problem. For some of my own regularly
updated "projects" (i.e. a collection of scripts) I use an always increasing
number, preferably date, and do not care at all about -pre, -post, -beta, -rc,
-etc.

"2.6.10-27" (read: try #27)... sound funny.

rc is release candidate. Which means its close to a release. Shouldn't
this be more a -test? -pre? count down? -rc-1 ? is this -1 or dash 1? :)

Well I think better stick with the count up way ...

Or is the time come, where the shall be a split to a real dev line ...

Hehe, and a bunch of important (for me) ones that couldn't get in yet
because they had to be rebased about twice a day with the current flood
;)
oh well, I'm working on them now...

Do the -rcs first, let them contain everything that should go into the
next release.
And when you feel that you have released enough -rcs(Uh, whenever that
is...) release the -pres.
They should only contain critical bugfixes before the final release.

So change the naming to something like that:

linux-x.y.z.p

where

x = 2,
y = 6,
z = 1, 3, 5, ... => unstable - something like -rc or -rc-bk
z = 0, 2, 4, ... => stable
p - optional as with 2.6.8.1 - added to stable release when you need to
correct some very stupid and very important bug,
added to unstable release - meaning new snapshot


So there will be:
2.6.10 (possibly 2.6.10.1, ... if 2.6.10 will be broken)
2.6.11.0
2.6.11.1
2.6.11.2
...
2.6.12
...


In this scheme you can not mark that you are going to release "stable"
version quickly, but I do not think we need it. Or if you feel it is
needed then start numbering p from 90, 91, ... 100, 101, ... for really
near to stable -rcs.

This should be easy: the cut-over should be when you're tempted to
rename it 2.6.next. If you have no intention (or hope) of renaming
2.6.x-rc1 to 2.6.x, it is not a "release candidate" by definition.

What's the point? It serves as a signal that a) we're not accepting
more big changes b) we think it's ready for primetime and needs
serious QA c) when 2.6.next gets released, the _exact code_ has gone
through a test cycle and we can have some confidence that there won't
be any nasty 0-day bugs when we go to install 2.6.next on a production
machine.

> (*) In other words, I had a beer and watched TV. Mmm... Donuts.

Please devote some more beer and TV to this problem after you release
2.6.10.

AFAICT the point is being able to refer to it by name and the only
relevant property of the name is that it's distinct from all others.
This does as well as most any other scheme giving each unique names.
I'd be fine with nightly point releases, though I don't insist.

I have this feeling Linus is laughing at us when he debates these
arguments. Nonetheless I finally feel obliged to say a "release
candidate" is a release candidate. It should only be called that if it
is planned to be the real version, and the real version is _exactly_ the
same bar the version number. If it isn't even planned to be released
unmodified it's a -pre patch.

/me still hears Linus laughing. He's only been doing this for 13 years.

Cheers,

Besides... -pre and -rc additions do not sort correctly unless your sort
routine has special cases to take care of it.

I'm sure you have a well-founded logically consistent self-consistent
method of defining what release candidates are; unfortunately hordes of
others do, too, and their notions are in turn all subtly inconsistent
with yours and each other's, and they're all relatively vocal about them.

Give the emperor penguin a break. There's bound to be enough weighing
on him as it is with just the usual barrage of technical issues. The
new release process hasn't even been given a chance to fail yet as the
two commercial distros with the largest userbases haven't even gotten
to the point where they've both released 2.6 yet, and debian isn't
using 2.6 as the install kernel yet either.

It would be nice if this were qualified with something that distinguished
the outlandish idealizations you're actually criticizing from real math,
which makes no presumption that its axioms or hypotheses have any
connection to reality, observations, or predictions thereof. The abuse
you're speaking of is poor modelling for the sake of tractability of
symbolic calculations, which has nothing to do with proof or logic.

Re: The naming wars continue... [In reply to]

Hey guys, calm down, I meant "naming wars" in a silly kind of way, not the
nasty kind.

The fact is, Linux naming has always sucked. Well, at least the versioning
I've used. Others tend to be more organized. Me, I'm the "artistic" type,
so I sometimes try to do something new, and invariably stupid.

The best suggestion so far has been to _just_ use another number, which
makes sense considering my dislike for both -rc and -pre.

However, for some reason four numbers just looks visually too obnoxious to
me, so as I don't care that much, I'll just use "-rc", and we can all
agree that it stands for "Ridiculous Count" rather than "Release
Candidate".

More importantly, maybe we could all realize that it isn't actually that
big of an issue ;)

Mine is the trivial one: a release candidate is something that is
intended as a candidate for release. I'm not suggested anything about
requirements for code quality, yadda yadda, just that there's an
intent to release the release candidates should they pass muster. That
does not appear to be the intent with most 2.6-rc of late.

But I did! He's got until after 2.6.10.

(yes, that probably warrants a smiley)

Actually just the opposite. It's more about Godel and Whitehead than
Feynmann in my interpretation.

I've got a good page or so of compare function in ketchup already, I'm

Given that the versioning was supposedly <major>.<minor>.<patchlevel> and
the difference between 2.4 and 2.6 was substantial, why not just bump
<major> instead of the minor. Then we'd have 3.0, 3.1, 4.0, 4.1.1 (for
stupid mistakes). Isn't it time we move off the 2.x series and start
thinking of the 3.x series?

Yes. Disable NETFILTER_DEBUG for now.

Well, several of us think that -pre's should come before the
-rc's and not after them.

It appears that we should concentrate on the
NAME=Zonked Quokka
part of Makefile for our sanity.

Linus I agree it isn't a huge issue. The main thing for me is that
I could just give a _real_ release candidate more testing - run it
through some regression tests, make sure it functions OK on all my
computers, etc. I expect this would be helpful for people with large
sets of regression tests, and maybe those maintaining 'other'
architectures too.

I understand there's always "one more" patch to go in, but now that
we're doing this stable-development system, I think a week or two
weeks or even three weeks to stabalize the release with only
really-real-bugfixes can't be such a bad thing.

2.6.x-rc (rc for Ridiculous Count) can then be our development
releases, and 2.6.x-rc (rc for Release Candidate) are then closer
to stable releases (in terms of getting patches in).

Optionally, you could change Ridiculous Count to PRErelease to avoid
confusion :)

Other than that I don't have much to complain about... so keep up the
good work!

When you (Linus) think a release is ready to be released, call it
-rc1. If you did your job correctly, you can just sit and wait
for a few days and release the -rc1 as a new kernel.
In the real world though, some bugs may crop up, so you'd be
forced to release a rc2. Which in turn may be released unchanged
as the final kernel.

Releases prior to a release candidate can be called whatever you
like. I'd choose -preX ;-)

Others are arguing about _subtle_ differences; what Linus did was huge
by comparison. It's as if they were discussing what shade of red to call
something and Linus came along and declared it green!

"Release candidate" means candidate for release. Simple and easy to
understand, no? Does Linus plan on possibly releaseing -rc1 as 2.6.10
tomorrow? I don't think so...

I plan to start testing 2.6.10 upon its final release.

Jeff, you'd been doing most reiserfs work lately - any chance to convert
reiserfs to these generic APIs? Once we have all filesystems converted
over maintaince will be much simpler. Take a look at ext2, ext3, or jfs
on how to use them - I'll do xfs in the meantime.
