Description Frank Tobin 2002-12-02 12:49:10 UTC
Pine patch 4.50-gentoo.diff reintroduces the problems of Bug 3719, and makes
Pine largely unusable.  Looks like someone without thinking just shoved the
unused, broken pine-4.44-multibyte.patch into 4.50-gentoo.diff.

On a related note, I'd like to PLEASE request that patches not be in this style,
with 5 or so patches all in one diff.  To workaround Bug 3719 I could easily
comment out the appropriate line in the ebuild that did the bad patch, but with
everything all in one file, I have to edit the patch straight.

I am currently working on a pine-4.50-r2 with the patch updated to remove the
multibyte char stuff... I'll post on this bug as soon as the new version has
been relased into portage.
Comment 2 Frank Tobin 2002-12-03 14:23:05 UTC
I recommend breaking down the patch into multiple files, as were done
previously, not having one big patch.
Comment 3 Nick Hadaway 2002-12-03 14:30:55 UTC
pine-4.50-r2 has been released to portage.  Please let me know if things work
properly for you.

I have not split the patches back up into their individualness as I did much
editing after all patches applied and things have changed enough to the point
where it just made more sense for me to apply one patch.  I just made the
mistake of keeping the multibyte patch in there.
Comment 4 Nick Hadaway 2002-12-03 15:40:51 UTC
And now pine-4.50-r3 is in portage which again splits up the patches and also
adds support for the mbox USE variable. :)

Thanks a bunch for resolving this so quickly!  It's quite a pain when your email
client is buggy :)
