    I expected to read what took them so long Debian Sid rolled it 40 days ago.

      Unless I missed something in the article: It's only in the testing repos for now FYI.

        erhh, yeah, well, ben there, done that (https://t2sde.org/packages/glibc), however, all latest glibc since quite some yesteryear segfault on early program init / startup on sparc{,64}, need to debug that sometime soon: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XYsKct4T2xk

              I'm confused.

              Are you a space faring alien?

              The gentleman in this video says he LITERALLY can't use Linux on SPARC. Lol

                Tell him that most people behave like sheeps and "choose" to use some things because they see so many others use it, so once it is Bean cool

                  Even though Arch has bad rep in some circles (underservedly so, imho), it aims (and succeeds at that most of the time) to be a solid, reliable, working system. It's not an unstable version for testing what may become a release in the future.

                  Remember who Sid is named after.

                  ​​​​​​​Arch tends to test things to at least make sure theybat least can give the users orientation on migration procedures. Not like what unstable does.

                    Prerelase of glibc 2.27 was in Debian experimental repo for about 2 months before it entered Sid, what do you think that does there? Do you maybe still think how that is pushed without any thinking?

                    And if you want to know, new glibc would be pushed in Sid even around release date, but Ubuntu was in freeze, so as soon as that was unfrozen it immedeatlly entered as was really ready 3 months ago even I know that, as i was testing it for about that speed at that time about 3 months ago
