add static package to mingw32-bzip2

Comment 2 Richard W.M. Jones 2010-12-24 15:47:46 UTC
Amorilia, can you request commit rights for this package, then
you can check the change in yourself.


Comment 3 amorilia 2010-12-25 20:44:13 UTC
Sure, thanks for the quick response, and for the display of trust. I happily help out. However, beware that I have no experience with Fedora packaging yet (although I hope to change this). Anyway, I have added myself to the mingw32-bzip2 package. What's the next logical move?

Comment 4 Richard W.M. Jones 2010-12-27 16:32:50 UTC
You need to request 'commit'.

However I realized that maybe you cannot see that button, because
you are not yet a packager.  If that is the case then you also need
to follow this:


If this is too much trouble, then I can commit this, however
it would be better if you could become a packager if you intend
to do any more packaging changes in future.

Comment 5 amorilia 2010-12-28 10:08:13 UTC
Indeed, I am no packager, whence the button withholds. Your latter option makes perfect sense. I will start with reviewing a few packages (suggestions are welcome), and submit a package for mingw32-xz. We will see how it goes from there.
