The previous upload of Woof was August 28:

There was a blog post recently on how to download a recent snapshot tarball of Woof and use that as the reference to download Woof changes since then, without the full history:

2createpackages bug
I have just discovered a major bug in script 2createpackages. Will try and fix it later today.
After siesta.

False alarm
No, it's ok. It is what is referred to as a "corner case". The bug showed up in something I did in Wary, won't occur for others using Woof. I have fixed it anyway.

Have a rest!
Hi Barry

We aren't desperately awaiting "next Woof".
Take it easy, those of us who know Woof usually fix it ourselves and post somewhere our fix.

While I (and the other avid "Woofers") know you always come up with some unique innovation it doesn't always work in the scope of "Woof".. what I mean by "scope" is the diverse "pups" (read "children") that Woof is capable of producing, I could rattle them off but you know better than anyone!

Perhaps (IMHO).. instead of the pressure of uploading a new Woof every time you find a bug just upload an interim patch. Certainly would (again IMHO) relieve pressure on you.

You've been hard at it for some weeks/months now, you deserve a break.

Cheers, Mick

Woof upload frequency
I have had hard time to build new versions using new woof.When I have had new woof in condition there has been one or two new woofs already uploaded. Lol. It is great that bugs and new features are uploaded...but I am sure it takes precious time to create them, fix them and upload them. Anyway...I thank you of your hard work...and dont take too much pressure on your shoulders.

That's it for awhile
The upload of Aug 29 is "it" for awhile.

I'm doing other things now.

Not it isn't
I have been pulled back from other work that I have started, to fix Wary, see latest blog post:

Which means I will also upload another Woof, with the latest 'Packages-puppy-common-official' in it.

I'm not in a very good mood right now.
