Date: Tue, 8 Jul 2014 11:00:34 +0400 From: "(GalaxyMaster)" <galaxy@...nwall.com> To: owl-dev@...ts.openwall.com Subject: recent updates Solar, I see that you've started to updated packages. This makes my life a bit harder since I need to double-check and correct my patches. For example, I had an update to gnupg and now I need to compare that cumulative patch from ALT with all patches I have in my package in order to see whether there is something missing or not. This is not that important but adds some workload where it could have been avoided. As of beginning of July my first batch of changes to Owl was compiling flawlessly (under 10 iterations of 'make buildworld' to bring the system to a state where everything is updated). Another problem is that I performed extensive tests on rebuilding the whole Owl userland with my updated packages. Now, these updates render my tests obsolete since I need to rebuild everything again just to ensure that whatever has been changed is not broken by my updates. :( I wish you've spent this time to branch Owl as we discussed, so I could commit my part. You could just have said that you need gnupg updated and it would have been done instantly (since my goal was to do updates of the userland and I clearly allocated time for this). I still have a week to commit and fix whatever breaks as the result, but then I'll be likely unavailable for several months. It's just a bit sad that I've spent almost 2 months to make this update and I cannot commit. Moreover, I'm afraid if I do not commit it soon we will just lose it. -- (GM)
