Hi Arthur,

> Hi All!
> The only blocker bug I have for 2.5.04 stable is the re-opened 5155 "after file renamed, retrieve file using tag,
> wrong filename is retrieved" - I've experimented with a fix in 2.5.03 so I think I'll just port that to 2.5.04 and
> call it done.  Oh and I need to check that bug 4918  (protocol_map.ini is out of date) is OK in 2.5.04.
> There was some talk about trying to fix up the whole ext/extssh/ssh confusion discussed on the TortoiseCVS newsgroup
> - but I think that should be pushed out now (it is just like the :local: and 'login' issues - potentially too
> divisive/confusing for 2.5.04).
> There are still some bugs/items-to-do in the 'combined installer' (which includes TortoiseCVS and WinCVS and WMfree
> and demo versions of some of our commercial software) but I think the correct course of action is to declare 2.5.04
> stable with the 'minimal' installer then release the 'fat' installer a few weeks later ...
> The only other issues are things that are just as broken in (current stable).
> Are there any other bugs people were expecting to be fixed in this release?

Was bug #5032 (failure to add files on a branch) addressed? If not, is this bug also present in 2.5.03?

> Any reasons why 2.5.04 cannot be declared stable?
> Does anyone have specific advice/feedback about testing CVSNT SERVER 2.5.04 on Vista or Windows 2008 Server (the
> latter is still in RC I think)?
> I need to create builds for each platform (windows 32/mac power+intel/hpux 32+64+itanium/solaris 32+64/rhelv4
> 32/susesles9 64).  Provided no one has any objections and the builds go off relatively cleanly then I can declare
> 2.5.04 stable at the close of this month...
> Waiting on your feedback...
