Hi Vincent, I have updated collectd in F14 to 4.9.4 but F13 is currently at 4.8.5 and I'm not sure if bump to 4.9.x is ok. Should I backport the fix to 4.8.x for F13?
Comment 2 Vincent Danen 2010-12-17 10:34:00 EST
Hi Alan.  Backporting the fix would be fine.  I don't recall if a patch was pointed out in the Debian report or not though, but if you can find/generate a patch to backport, that would be perfect.  Thanks!
