Drivers Update

Friday March 29th, 2002

The Status Reports was updated, and included some information on what are up to, and what's coming up:

" approved checkins for over 240 bugs this last week. We've taken a few more big-ticket items and have a couple to go. drivers will be ramping down this next week and actively soliciting fixes that we need to branch and have a Release Candidate 1 sometime (hopefully) late next week. We need to get RC1 out there quickly and get feedback on all the changes we've taken since 0.9.9 and at the same time we need the release to stand up so that users will put enough hours on it to give meaningful feedback. Please help us to get the builds into good shape over this next week with particular attention to recent regressions and topcrash+ bugs."

I think you've added to the confusion about TeX and the bug bounty. I'm not an expert, but here'ss the best link that I could find: <http://www-cs-faculty.sta…u/~knuth/abcde.html#texbk>. Also, look at the top of <…systems/knuth/tex/tex.web>, for TeX's changelog. It looks like no errors since 1995.

Anyway, I don't think Donald Knuth ever paid bounties on "layout error in a publication created using TeX", only on errors in his own books and in TeX itself.
