== 8.1.1 ==
Is 8.1.1 done? It was due June 7. According to
<http://wiki.laptop.org/go/OLPC_SW-ECO_5_Checklist> , the only thing
left is for "The champion" to sign off; according to
http://dev.laptop.org/ticket/7014 , the only thing left is "finalize".
If/when 8.1.1 is done, should all G1G1 users update to it, or are
these dot-dot releases optional ECOs only intended for particular roll-outs?
== 8.1.2 ==
There's a SW-ECO_6 for release 8.1.2 (due yesterday ;-) ). It implies
the build for 8.1.2 is build 709, which Build Announcer v2 announced
recently. If someone makes a candidate out of this I'll gladly test it,
its fixes sounds worthwhile. (My developer key "will be ready in 8
hours, 51 minutes" :-) )
On the subject of "more clarity",
* http://wiki.laptop.org/go/8.1.2 says
"No 8.1.2 release is currently planned with any certaintity"
* http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Releases and http://dev.laptop.org/roadmap
don't mention 8.1.2
* <http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Documentation_Projects#8.1.2> says "The
current build is 8.1.1 (probably 708 still being tested). The next
release in the current stream is 8.1.2 (711)." I think "711" is a typo.
I'll gladly update the wiki with whatever you say, and I've got some
ideas to reduce the overhead and overlap.
