Risk assessment?   With QA like they have had?


There are already dozens of servers (ranked and unranked) that have rolled
back to 1.0.

You know, it says Linux later but they are moving briskly
on a Windows test tonight. I would imagine a memory issue
like this, since it is impacting the heap on all O.S. servers,
if they patched the ranked windows code, it makes sense they
would also patch the unranked windows server code as well.

They also know what they are looking for, and it is a specific
fix for this single issue, which minimizes risk in change.

Perhaps this means the Linux patch is right behind it all goes
well tonight.  EA's quick turn-around on this fix, as opposed to
a next patch, is indeed outside the normal M.O.  This yields hope.

Anyone know if they ever make releases on weekends?  If so
perhaps we may see it before the weekend is out. If not, I can't
imagine they would intentionally hold back if the risk assessment
is very low.

Thoughts on this?  A weekend release?

Which "nicely" states: "EA will select service providers for an open test
tonight." for the memeroy leak patch...

So far for us ppl hoping to actually getting their hands on the fix within a
few hours. It'll indeed be their "ranked partners" first, who can "enjoy"
the normal memory consumption *way* before us unranked server users can...
