PSA for Mastodon admins 

I'm not sure what the course of action here is for me in terms of getting the fix out there. Since tags are supposed to be immutable, do I make a new release with no code changes but a fixed Dockerfile?

Gonna test the presumed fix on, fingers crossed

Proving the absence of something that happens randomly is difficult so please test it, give it a few hours, tell me if the segfaults in Sidekiq are gone for good.

@noiob Please be specific. What frequent error messages? Those specific error messages like in the linked issue?

@Gargron That's about as specific as I can get, since we just got the errors after the 2.3 update and frantically tried to fix the web frontend throwing errors all the time. I didn't read any logs or anything because I don't know where to find them, I just downgraded Ruby and it went away. Might very well be an unrelated issue.

@noiob Okay, good to know. The segfaults wouldn't appear in the frontend. Seems unrelated.

I would count it as a r2. Say the last release was 2.5.21, this would be 2.5.21-r2.

Oh, and yes, it is a new release. But that method of versioning indicates that there is no code changes, just packaging/misc changes.

@kd0bpv @Gargron After all, Microsoft did it with its Server Products... Sever 2008R2, 2012R2, etc...

However, never saw a R2D2 release though 🙁

@DarvenDissek @Gargron it's also what Linux package maintainers do when they have to fix something in a package, but it doesn't affect the packages software's code.

@gargron they're not really immutable, -> latest, stable, ...

but 2.3.2 wouldn't be unreasonable either

@Gargron I don't understand what you're talking about. Hoo-boy! I am really not going to like being a computer science major, am I?

@Reginald_Konga I was addressing people who run Mastodon on their servers, which presumes some familiriaility with the terms I was using. Don't worry, you're not expected to know all of that just because you study CompSci...

@Gargron It just seemed like my not understanding your speech was a common occurrence. That's all.

Hey, ich bin immer noch auf 2.2.0 - Sieht der rc2 fuer dich bis jetzt okay aus, oder gabs schon den ein oder anderen Schluckauf?

@walialu rc2 ist in Ordnung. Aber bitte backups haben!

@Gargron Klar, ich bin zu paranoid um keine Backups zu machen! :)

@Gargron So, update ist durch, du bist n geiler Typ! Jetzt kann ich beruhigt schlafen gehen! 🐘 🐘 🐘 🐘

@gargron +1. I’ve seen other projects do that; if the release notes are clear then it’ll be fine
