Why does LVFS lag so far behind?

2020-03-06, 16:24 PM

Hello,

 

This is the third time it has happened to me (with firmware 1.27, 1.28 and now 1.29). I go to the Firmware Updates page for my X1 Extreme Gen2, see that there is a new firmware available since a few days ago. I run `fwupdmgr refresh` and `fwupdmgr get-updates`,  and no updates are available.

 

Last time (1.28), there was a VERY long lag (weeks, perhaps over a month) between when the firmware was available on the page and when it was available on LVFS. I am concerned because 1.29 has some security updates included.

 

I would understand a delay of a couple of days, perhaps a week, but I really hope that 1.29 is available soon.

I just checked today after a couple of days of not checking and 1.29 is there now. The question still stands, why is there such a large delay when posting the firmware updates to LVFS?

Re:Why does LVFS lag so far behind? 3 weeks afterit came out, firmware 0.1.30 is not available yet for X1E Gen2

Again the same problem. According to https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/es/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-x-series-laptops/thinkpad-x1-extreme-gen-2/20qv/20qvcto1ww/r90wad97/downloads/driver-list/component?name=BIOS%2FUEFI, firmware 0.1.31 (which is a CRITICAL update according to that page) is available since May 19. It is now June 8. I am running firmware 0.1.30 and Ubuntu 20.04, and `fwupdmgr get-updates` still says that there are no updates available.

 

Is it really so hard to push an update to LVFS as soon as it's actually available?
