I suppose this happened because the update of bash and readline went out before you distributed the new cinnamon packages in the antergos repository.
I have a few questions:
- Why do you have a seperate version of cinnamon (and related packages) in the antergos repo even if there are official packages in community?
- Why is there no big warning sign ala “Don’t update bash and readline until we publish updated versions of cinnamon, your DE will brick otherwise” on the front page of the antergos website?
- Why dont you publish the old, working versions of bash and readline in the antergos repo so at least people who didn’t yet update are safe?
I understand that managing updates (and the implications of them) is complicated, but now you are aware of the issue and could at least warn the users.
