Release Manager is who decides what goes what's not.
Current Ac Release Manager is Hawk.
On March 23rd PLD Linux Distribution team has announced release of PLD Linux 2.0 RC1 isos. Ftp resources contain 11 CDs for each architecture (i386, i586, i686, athlon, amd64 and ppc), miniiso (for i386, i586, i686 and athlon), DVD (for i686, amd64, ppc) and 14 CDs or 2 DVDs of source rpm packages.
Due to many changes/problems/delays there will be no more RCs. Next version will be stable version. It didn't make it before October because Someone(TM) was updating only x86/amd64/ppc part of kernel.spec ignoring sparc and alpha. Now kernel packages are ready and only following things are blocking Ac release:
I really wanted to generate ISOs before end of 2006, but that would mean Ac being outdated on its release date (and I don't want that to happen). If solving all of the problems listed above will go smoothly, then Ac ISOs should hit FTP on January, but since everything may happen I can't guarantee that date. However, February is a must.
Update: due to repeating problems with amd64 builder Ac will be delayed again. Sorry folks and yes, I know that Ac looks more like NEST.
