Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-06-14 16:43:45 UTC
The patch in summary is touching both Makefile.in and Makefile.am, probably to avoid autotools rebuild.

This treatment is usually reserved for a few selected system packages that cannot have their autotool scripts rebuilt.

This _could_ cause maintainermode-driven rebuild (see http://blog.flameeyes.eu/articles/2008/06/13/maintaner-mode ), which is something we should be avoiding as much as possible.

Please just patch Makefile.am and/or configure.in/.ac and rebuild autotools, unless you have very good reasons not to.

I do not intend to fix current 0.7.1 as much effort as been put into 0.7.1-r1.
I'd rather ask for stabilization of r1 and remove the buggy ebuild.
Comment 2 Gilles Dartiguelongue gentoo-dev 2008-06-15 12:45:14 UTC
ah, I should add that calling eautoreconf or eautomake was broken in 0.7.1, hence some of the new patches in r1. So there's really nothing else to do than wait another 15 days to start stabilization.
Comment 3 Gilles Dartiguelongue gentoo-dev 2008-06-29 17:46:04 UTC
0.7.1-r1 is stabled and I just killed the broken version. Closing.
