Paraphrasing the discussion a bit, it sounds like the only thing in the
way of a release is fixing a bunch of bugs. It sounds like there are a
couple that are real blockers. Is that a fair assessment?
If that's the case, I propose the following:
- Create a 7.9 tracker bug that is blocked by all the blockers.
- Next week create a 7.9 release branch. We'll treat it just like the
7.8 branch, but the "settling" period for fixes should be much shorter
(perhaps even instantaneous).
I think both parts are necessary. The blocker lets us know when we're
done, by consensus. The branch allows new development to continue
unhindered without jeopardizing the release. I know there is some
active work that's not GLSL related. :)
Sound like a fair plan?
