1 Hi everybody,
4 I propose the `emerge --info` included in arch testers' comments on
5 stabilisation bugs should rather be posted as attachments. The AT
6 comments clog up the bugs and are usually not interesting at all to devs
7 other than those who are arch devs for the relevant arches. It would
8 certainly improve my RSI not to have to scroll past them.
10 On a minor note, I'd also like to see bug reporters use canonical
11 package names in bug descriptions, including the category (and
12 preferably the specific version, not some >=foo-3*!!!one, not to
13 mention specifying no version at all). Including the category means
14 arch devs won't need to guess/discover which of a few hundred categories
15 a package is meant to reside in.
18 Kind regards,
19 JeR
