Description Jonathan Kamens 2000-06-22 15:37:50 EDT
First of all, I'm filing this under libgr instead of netpbm because there's
no netpbm category in bugzilla.  If you're going to rename the package from
libgr to netpbm, you need to create the netpbm category.

I submitted patches to libgr to add -X, -Y and -R options to pnmtotiff to
set the X, Y or both resolutions of the image in the TIFF options of the
output file.  My patches were accepted and you incorporated them into a
subsequent libgr release.

They've disappeared in the new netpbm package, i.e., these command-line
options are gone from pnmtotiff in netpbm-progs.

A regression of this sort is Very Bad.  Furthermore, besides this change,
what other changes to libgr did you forget to incorporate into netpbm?

Please fix this.

This should be fixed in netpbm-9.5-3 and later.
Comment 2 Jonathan Kamens 2001-06-28 10:26:02 EDT
-X, -Y and -R are gone from pnmtotiff AGAIN.
This is getting a little silly.
Comment 3 Phil Knirsch 2001-07-02 06:03:46 EDT
The official newest netpbm version has included a set of resolution parameters
to handle that: -xresolution and -yresolution. -R (use pixels/inch) is now default.

The documentation/manpage unfortunately doesn't document that change (yet), i'll
include that.

Read ya, Phil
