Hi,

It has been almost 4 months since 0.178. There have been more than 60
commits. Various important bug fixes and some nice new features for
debuginfod. We seem to be in good shape. So I propose we'll do a new
release by the end of the week. If there are specific issues/bugs you
want to work on/get in before we do a release please let me know.

I think it would be good if we could figure out whether this is
possible to support:

https://sourceware.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=25548
also support canonicalized source-file name lookups in webapi

The problem is that it isn't entirely clear we can support
"canonicalization" in a way that doesn't rely on the file system. But
maybe we can just say that we support the most basic form of
"resolving" '/./', 'foobar/../' and '//' as in the original description
. The issue with the missing CURLOPT_PATH_AS_IS from comment #4
probably should be resolved also.

Are there any other "urgent" bug fixes pending?

Cheers,

Mark
