- congratulations to the tracker crew – bug 403752 has now become number one in the all time statistics. though it has been fixed in svn for nearly 3 months now (2007-04-30), the maintainer(s) is unable to either release a new version (0.6.0) or to isolate a patch that could be backported to the distros to stop this flood. mart (who is one of the brave guys triaging that one) told me that he has increased his gnome bugzilla points from 7 to 17 just because of marking duplicates for this one. by average, the bugsquad closes 7 dups of this one per day (!).
jamie, maintaining your project does not only mean to write new code all the time, it also means to take care of those bugsquaders that support you. i would probably be less pissed if i had not been told for five times in the last three months so far that a new release will be done “within the next two weeks”/”at the next weekend”/whatever. last answer was “this weekend”, we will see what happens (or not). at least it’s highly unprofessional behaviour and not acceptable.
- libsexy’s bug 354559 is still second worst in the duplicates statistics of non-fixed gnome issues. after waiting for six months, we now have a nice trace since one month. i’ve send two emails to the maintainers so far, no reaction. david, christian, please fix it and attach a patch for backporting it to the distros. thanks.
- guadec has been very productive yesterday evening with regard to eliminating whiskey and south american drinks. please continue.
