Dragons will be spouting flames again!

Dear Turris users,

Once upon a time, there were :dragon: , which were spoutting flames almost every day in a branch called HereBeDragons (hbd). During that time strong men from OpenWrt castle wanted to tame them, so they could stop spouting fires anywhere. By using magic wand :dragon_face: were transformed into :lion:.
But in branch HereBeLions (hbl), they became wild as they were heading to OpenWrt 19.07 world.

We are trying to catch those who escaped to putting them back to our small ZOO. Once we catch them all, we will borrow a magic wand from wonderland and by using magic, we will transform them as :cat: (Kittens) and lately as :turtle: (Turtles) and :snail: (Snails)! There is going to be an announcement from our ZOO, where we will let you know when we catch all the wild lions, who escaped!

Some pilgrims let us know that they want to have Dragons with :fire: . Should we allow it? Let’s spawn new and more dragons with even stronger flames than before. They will be in the branch HBD in upcoming days (approx in a week or two)!

If you are using branch HBD to follow OpenWrt 19.07, we would like to suggest to use branch HBL as HBD will be tracking OpenWrt master again soon.


So, in normal speech… When should those who are running on TOS5 switch to HBL when they still want to stay on TOS5??? Can someone explain it, please?

I believe lions are on 5.x for some time already. https://repo.turris.cz/hbl/mox/lists/turris-version

When will be released first beta of Turris OS 5?

Lot of fancy writing but not delivering. Skip the fancy writing and deliver instead, like a 5.x beta for instance.

A month later there is 5.1 (OpenWrt 19.07) in HBD, same as HBL. Then there are commits in Master but no builds by bot.

In upcoming days/soon. Is Half-Life 3 coming? No, but Half-Life: Alyx is coming.

It seems you are only the one, who is interested in the HBD branch. Yes, it is described in our workflow and we are working on it, but for us, the main priority is on OpenWrt 19.07.

Any pull requests are welcome.

I will let you know when Dragons will be spouting flames again.

  • back in the day when Master from upstream been available it provided an early awareness/testing of upstream code changes that eventually impacted downstream (recall LuCI kernel log and syslog, procd bug)
  • upstream code changes in their Master branch may (unpredictably) be uplifted into upstream’s stable branch and subsequent TOS stable (causality)
