I saw no notice of that. I don't know what platforms you tested it on.
(nor that you tested at all). I didn't know you already built binaries also.

What did you do to make it read v1.1? Again, I saw no notice of that, I
assumed it would show rXXXXX since that's what the trunk code does.

Well, my plan was to tag 1.1 off the branch, and then delete it. Then
have 1.2 tagged from another branch (or trunk if we agree on).

1.1RC is based off the branch too.

It is already removed.

Same feeling here. mkamsboot 1.1RC was based off the branch (which
contains safe code), 1.1 is not. You didn't explain it anywhere. It
rather looked like you would follow linuxstb who said " I never liked
that branch, so would suggest just using trunk.".

You just made a release without waiting for opinions of other AMS port
guys. Your lack of conversation confused me much.

But I didn't behave much better, that's true, I was a bit bitter about it.

We can avoid this if we're a bit more patient about releasing *very*
critical tools. I don't want to "just release" tools that can brick
hardware without having a talk with some involved guys about it.

Best regards.
