amazon is a private company and has the right to refuse business to anyone it wants.
The issue is, that they _did_ want my business by selling me the kindle in the first place. Censoring the content for that device _after_ I bought it, is not OK.
I can't guess what your definition of stable is, but I can tell you mine. It's based on my experience with 0.22 and 0.23. Stable means my mythbackend service runs 24/7 and hardly ever crashes. If it ever crashes, I have a small cron script that detects it and restarts the service. Mythfrontend gets started once a day and hardly ever crashes (I don't leave it open over night).
Regardless of your or my definition, what counts for a bump in version numbering is what the developers define as stable.
Of course the MythTV "marketing department" is looking for ways to get people to use their product, otherwise they wouldn't be releasing at all
Well, not really. If MythTV was a closed source project you could be right. Code gets released by developers because sharing it makes other developers contribute their improvements/fixes back. To have lots of users is nice, but is not in itself the driving motivation to do releases or set a version number.
And part of having a sensible versioning scheme is to make users understand what it means to upgrade to a new release.
No, that's what release notes are for. A version numbers have so many meanings and uses, that it can't be pinned down like that. The version number you seem to suggest is something like Windows 3.1, but even Microsoft has changed that to product names like Windows 98 or Office 2003. The version number used by MythTV just reflects that the developers deem it stable for production environments AND that they will backport some fixes while developing the next version. To sum it up: 0.23 just states that the code is stable.
If you need a marketing name for this version that includes every information you might need to know, I suggest this one: "iMythTV Premium 2010 (Service Pack 0)"
Does it really matter to you that much what number the version has? The versioning in MythTV is just a rolling number stating a stable release. It does not state that it is beta or unstable or anything else. If it makes you happy call it 9.10 or 1.0 for all it matters.
0.23 = Stable version as of 10th of May 2010.
0.23-fixes = Stable version + all backported fixes as of the moment you download the code from svn.
What is your argument? What are you implying?
Civilians died unnecessarily in Kosovo, that is a fact. Civilians being killed in one ware is just as unnecessary as in any other.I remember quiet clearly that the Kosovo war was very controversial in Germany. I personally was very upset with the civilian casualties that resulted due to the war. I clearly remember that the media did report and comment harshly on the linked civilian deaths, but it seems that both the press and NATO did take it as seriously. As an example read is this report: http://www.unhcr.org/refworld/country,,HRW,,SRB,,3ae6a86b0,0.html
>What goes around comes around.
A very productive way of dealing with the issue at hand.
Did I miss this? Aren't Mangas just another kiddy porn depiction? Are they now illegal in Australia? Are the authorities arresting every Japanese with Mangas in their suitcase as they try to enter the country?
