Hello list,

  12 Apr 2008; Gilles Dartiguelongue <eva@g.o> package.mask:
  Masking gnome-system-tools because it is broken,
  to help fix it, see bug #214265.

------- Comment #3 from eva@g.o  2008-04-12 15:19 0000 -------
ok guys, here is the situation. We need someone really motivated with
perl foo and possibly a bit of C. Upstream is open to contribution and
will gladly accept it. We also need someone that knows gentoo system
well enough to help make things right for both upstream and the
contributor (if they are separated persons).

Gnome system tools were masked today because they are broken with gnome
2.22 and basically nobody wants to touch it.

Status on 2.22 s-t-b/g-s-t/liboobs:
      * users-admin allows creating users but doesn't save them. Try to
        debug this with d-feet spawned a strange error like "No .service
        registred for :1:79" or something like that.
      * network-admin doesn't seem to detect properly DHCP/Static IP but
        reports appropriate status when using NM.
      * services-admin doesn't detect running services and don't stop
        them when unchecking a box.
      * shares-admin seems to be working ok.
      * time-admin looks ok as well.

Now where to start ? I think a good start would be to try and write a
CLI tool that manipulates users like usermod but through liboobs or
something that could be used as a testsuite for s-t-b. Please help.
