Is there any blocker or anything else expected to get done before Solus 4.1 release? Just out of curiosity

It's currently blocked by:

  1. Broken appstream metadata for the Software Center, per T7805. I need to remind @DataDrake when he gets the time to rebuild it against his local repo (since my home server is running Fedora with a newer version of appstream-glib and I haven't had success with my patched newer version of it, whereas at least Bryan's machine with the local repo is running Solus so he can rebuild it using our version of appstream-glib with the eopkg patches).
  2. Some smaller infra changes I would want to do first (namely moving us over to Fastly again with RIT as a backend)
  3. I'd like to implement a desktop icon view in Budgie so I could finally update Nautilus. Fairly trivial to do but I just haven't been able to find the time for it.

I thought the bullet number 2 was already resolved.

No and in fact that's why some users are facing issues while updating the system.

One last item from me to do and that's moving us back to Fastly, then it's Solus 4.1 release time. Getting solbuild 1.4.5.2 out the door to move the images was the final item, with @DataDrake fixing Solus appstream data in the Software Center and having it point to getsol.us as well, so only thing that obviously needs to be on packages now is the packages themselves.

Nuking of the solbuild images and appstream data will occur next week, then I'll be sorting out Fastly. I think we'll hit their limit pretty quickly for what they'll be providing, but I'll be reaching out to them to see if they'd be willing to provide us more bandwidth (given we operate at an OS scale...as an OS, who woulda thunk it).
