Hi Andrew,

Thanks for replying.
I understand the "edge" is under development and not heavily tested. I
would be using GDAL libraries for production environment in near future.
Can you share by when can we expect to have stable version of GDAL
available in Alpine repo?

Regards,
Anjan Singh

We've used the edge package before and it usually works, but then once
something changes in the testing repo (like a new version of a library),
then it will break. For reliable use, it needs to be integrated into the
main branches so it can be used without worry. In order to get that pulled
in, the tests need to be added to the build:
