And we're getting a lot closer. Last edits to the wiki for the testing page. Tests marked as passed. There are a bunch of architectures where the media images are still to be built and the source media will still need to be written as well.
It's been a really good (and fairly long day). I'm very glad indeed that I'm not staying up until the bitter end. It's always fun - I'm also very glad that, as it panned out, we didn't end up also doing the next Buster point release this weekend - it would have been a massive workload.
So Stretch passes to LTS, Jessie has passed to ELTS - and we go onwards and upwards to the next point release - and then, in due course, to Bullseye when it's ready (probably the first quarter of next year?).
As ever, thanks due to all involved - the folks behind the scenes who maintain cdimage.debian.org, to Sledge, RattusRattus, Isy and schweer. Done for about a fortnight or so until the next Buster release.
I will try to blog on other things, honest :)
