(I am respectfully resending this message to make sure it was received,
as there has been no maintainer response yet. I believe the community
would really appreciate having an expectation about the development
cycle for this project.)
Could I politely ask the maintainers to please consider doing a minor
version release of Quagga (i.e. 0.99.16) soon, perhaps after the current
queue of patches on the list are reviewed and checked in?
I am asking because I rely on several of the patches that have been
committed since the last release. I would find a lot of practical
benefit at work in having these patches rolled into a release -- both
for internal use, and to simply our collaboration with other
organizations that use Quagga for network routing studies.
I am also raising this request in consideration of the time that has
elapsed since the last release (nearly five months, compared to the
prior few releases which were at one-month intervals); the number of
patches committed since the last release (which is comparable to the
number of patches comprising each of the last few releases); and because
the 0.99.x series is a development branch.
I certainly appreciate everyone's time toward this project, and I
believe that a minor version release now would permit more widespread
testing prior to the 1.0 release, and sustain the project's momentum.
