inotify's backend support for gamin
How does this relates to patches made by John McCutchan ?
Like for example:
What is the diff for the spec file ? There is a spec file
in the gamin tarball.
In general I don't think bugzilla is the right place for these discussions,
the gamin mailing-list is.
I did not intend this to be a discussion, but a proposal for inclusion.
The attached patch here is identical to the one posted in gamin-list by John
McCutchan. I erroneously credited Robert Love for the patch instead of John
McCutchan. Robert deserves credit for the kernel patch.

Diff for the .spec file
Already applied upstream, no diff needed for the spec file, this will
be included in the next release, and I don't think keeping patches
within source RPMs while they are integrated upstream and doesn't work
for the current shipped kernel to be a good idea. All this really need
to be done upstream, on the list, any other options is just a waste of
