Description justXi 2010-01-20 09:30:00 UTC
Would be nice to have an ebuild.
If you need testing support please drop a line.

Reproducible: Always

Fortunately, there's now an ebuild in the tree. It fixes at least one serious bug - that's bug 300049. Now one can only hope that the herd introduces a policy of reading their bugs ...

we're stable requesting a package that has a half dozen bugs opened and was added to the tree within the last 8 hours?

There must be a typo somewhere that I missed.

I've already responded elsewhere. Suffice to say that I had intended to use this is a reference point for whittling down those bugs which are resolved by 0.12.2 and those which are not. Maybe I didn't do that in a way that follows the rule book but I submit that the premise itself is above patronisation.

Frankly, if fixing bugs is is so important, I find it most curious that the relevant herds have shown no hestiation in committing new ebuilds which continue to propagate outstanding QA bugs for which bugs have *already* been filed. At least with newer upstream versions, us out there in pesky Userville benefit from the upstream bug fixes. Or are is there going to be a suddden spring to action and a concerted effort to backport these (serious) bug fixes? I doubt it very much.

The original reporter's request was fulfilled. Considered formally, my request cannot be resolved and is just so much clutter in bugzilla; I duly retract it.
