reason to believe, or would like to see? If A.), great. if B.), I'll consider
Reason to believe. I hacked together a 2.4.0 rawhide build that I handed off to
Andreas, which should save him some time when rebasing. It was still in need of
some clean-up though.
nb: I'm not actually a maintainer on the package, just someone who had
need/desire to poke at it for a bit, but Andreas did express desire for a
co-maintainer on irc...
I see. Well, I've made the request in pkgdb. Once it's approved, I'd be more
than happy to take a look at what you've got. Seems to me F-9 should move to
2.2.8, as perhaps should F-8, and 2.4.0 for rawhide.
The fairly near future does not seem to be arriving... It would be very nice if
Fedora wasn't 2 releases behind on Bacula. Jon Ciesla, you're still stuck in
I have absolutely no desire to initiate an AWOL Maintainer process, but I am a
bit baffled. Andreas, would you be so kind as to approve my pkgdb request for
co-maintainership, so I can assist with some of the open bugs for Bacula?
FYI, I'm now a comaintainer, starting work on 2.2.8 and 2.4.1. . .
Its probably not 100% correct, and Andreas had some things he wanted to
integrate, but I have a working 2.4.1 build I've been using for the past month
and a half or so, which you're free to do with as you please if it helps, or
just ignore it, or whatever... :)
Grabbed. Thanks! I'll at very least refer to it, if not rip it off outright.
With credit given, naturally. :)
Testing my 2.2.8 build now. If it looks good I'll build this for rawhide and
F-9 updates-testing, then build and test 2.4.1.
Sorry for the delay, my build machine is not the fastest. . .
