Debian 的 64-bit time_t 計畫

在「Debian: 64-bit time_t transition in progress」這邊看到 Debian 的 mailing list 上的討論:「64-bit time_t transition in progress」,另外官方也有整理 wiki page:「64-bit time」。

因為技術上無法表示 2038/01/19 以後的時間,確定會 breaking ABI 將 time_t 從 32-bit 變成 64-bit,而現在要想辦法搞定 32-bit 平台上面可以處理這樣的改變:

The goal of this transition is to ensure that 32-bit architectures in trixie (whether they are currently release architectures, or out of archive, etc) will be capable of handling current and future timestamps referring to times beyond 2038.

離 2038/01/17 還有約 13 年多...
