Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4 Technical Notes – “Every Change to Every Package”

by

We’re getting ready to push the new “Technical Notes” document to redhat.com/docs for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4.

The Technical Notes document, new for this release, contains errata documentation for every single change to every single package between Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 and 5.4. In the six months between releases there have been more than 2000 changes to more than 250 packages; and every one of them has been documented for this release in a document that, at 500 pages, is the length of a short fantasy novel.

This document has been the work of a number of authors, led by Ryan Lerch, the Technical Notes author, and Brian Forte, the Red Hat errata queue maintainer. It’s also involved the collaboration of engineers throughout Red Hat, processes, and automation.

Update: The Technical Notes are now live on redhat.com. You can view them here.
