Description Brian Cappello 2004-09-30 20:04:41 UTC
Now that Reiser4 has been officially released and is being more widely used, I just wanted to request that Reiser4 patches be included in the gentoo-dev-sources. Or if Reiser4 isn't considered stable enough yet, would it be possible to have a seperate ebuild (~keyword or keyword hard masked) that would patch the stock gentoo-dev-sources with Reiser4?

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

No, Reiser4 still needs lots of work.

When it goes into the mainline kernel tree, then gentoo-dev-sources will have it.
Comment 2 Radek Podgorny 2004-12-12 16:24:31 UTC
It's been in the -mm tree for a while. Waiting till it's upstream is imho useless since then there's no point in using gentoo-sources... Or is gentoo-sources meant to be even more stable than vanilla?
Comment 3 Daniel Drake (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-12-13 00:53:14 UTC
gentoo-dev-sources is very similar to the upstream sources - we only apply small bugfixes/security fixes and not much else
Comment 4 Greg Kroah-Hartman (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-12-13 14:05:43 UTC
no way.

perhaps some replies were lacking tact, perhaps not.
However, although we see benefits of reiser4, they are yet to bear fruit as the stability issues are obvious.

Once it hits the mainstream kernel, or is as good as without any known issues at all and has hit stability in its code base, it will be better considered.
thanks for the bug.

I'm wondering why "kdbus" is available as a "USE-Flag on sys-kernel/gentoo-sources" but reiser4 not?
