The issue is that the skin and other packages need to be updated, but cannot all be built at the same time. So there’s a brief period where not everything is built. Fortunately this is in the staging repository. When we push things to release, we can push everything at the same time as the packages will have already been built.
Maybe you guys need a staging repository for your staging repository.
Serious question: if I do come across any bugs in this v18 I’ve accidentally installed, do you want me to report them? And if so, is there a central thread for all such issues, or should I start new threads as and when?
