I didn't know where any such discussion would take place - help-make
is for user help, bug-make just picks up details from bugs.

There is also #48057 :the summary says it breaks parallel builds for
at least git, perl, dialog and xterm - but it is actually a breakage
in parallel install, so nothing to get worried about [ except for
the people who like to use parallel installs ].

Bug #47996 (unconnected) talks of pre-release announcements, but the
mailing list name has been removed.  Hmm, bug-make is the right
list, 4.1.90 (an rc) was announced on 23rd April.  That got fixes
through to 2nd May, then 4.2 was released on 22nd May.

So no, I have not seen any mention of 4.2.1 being released.

I've created #3941, at the moment I'm trying to work out the correct
fixes for firefox re youtube.

If/when I hack that, I can take this.  I've had ff working fine with
both 46.0 and 46.0.1 by adding debug stuff (but the libs were still
stripped!), but I have not yet worked out which part of those changes
was the fix.  At the moment it crashes when it starts to play html5 -
46.0 only crashed if I paused).

I had to walk fifteen miles to school, barefoot in the snow.  Uphill both ways.
