Description Joshua Baergen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-08-30 17:02:16 UTC
I just marked x86 stable today.  No bug reports during the 30 day period.

Referencing bug #100772, sparc will be at 30 days tomorrow but AMD64 needs
another 10 days strictly speaking.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Comment 1 Gustavo Zacarias (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-08-30 18:49:26 UTC
sparc stable.
Comment 2 Wormo (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-09-02 22:45:59 UTC
ppc marked stable
Comment 3 Simon Stelling (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-09-04 07:44:10 UTC
looks like there is an issue:

do you know an app to test it?
Comment 4 Joshua Baergen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-09-04 09:33:19 UTC
Ah, I saw that bug when I was first looking at the package but I had talked to
one  or two AMD64 users who never mentioned having an issue.  Since GLEW uses GL
the problem could have been caused by any number of things and so I disregarded
it at the time.

The Gentoo interest in this package has been development instead of use.  The
only thing I know of so far that uses GLEW is the to-be-added soya 0.10, which
is a library itself I believe.

If you're concerned about this we can try to contact upstream directly and see
what they say.

AMD64: bump

I can contact them, just don't want to do so if you already have.
Comment 6 Simon Stelling (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-04 14:27:13 UTC
we're currently testing a new alias system, sorry for the bugspam
Comment 7 Simon Stelling (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-21 03:49:14 UTC
sorry, forgot about this one. i didn't contact upstream as there was already a
bug. looking for a package that depends on glew i grepped the tree. the only one
i got is dev-python/soya, which doesn't have the amd64 keyword at all... in the
Changelog there is bug #100772 mentioned.. well, we usually follow the same
guideline as MIPS: don't keyword unless the users ask you to. so for now, i
removed the keyword completely.
Comment 8 Goyo Roth 2005-10-23 17:47:37 UTC
Okay, I'm not adequately familiar with the gentoo development process to knoew
what all the bumping and wait periods or even the mention of the keyword. I do
know the amd64 keyword was removed, causing portage to yell at me when I updated. 

So maybe no other gentoo packages depend on this. Stuff I'm working on depends
on this. Some of us are developers too. 

If what you need to at least add this to ~amd64 is someone to request it, I so
request it. I never had any problems running with it before. Thanks.

Goyo, I readded ~amd64, thanks ;)
