24 Well, either fix repoman to not warn, or fix your workflow not to warn.
25 I don't find it worthwile doing whatever you're doing, so ... err ... right!
27 Fixing stuff (especially cosmetic issues) is faster than filing bugs and
28 then waiting between 10 minutes and 10 days for a response. I need to
29 cvs up and repoman full anyway, maybe check the Changelog to figure out
30 if it's this package that changed or the breakage is because of another
31 package (or profiles) changing. So doing an edit and committing is not
32 really an unexpected step from there and saves all people involved lots
33 of time.
35 I already file enough bugs, no need to file more bugs to fix issues that
36 shouldn't even be there. And don't expect me to keep track of exceptions
37 ... because then everyone is a special unique snowflake with a good
38 reason why breaking the rules is ok for this special case.
40 If you ever get bored feel free to work on reducing
42 to an empty list, that'd be, like, greaaat.
44 And I'm just going to not consider why you're the only one who NEEDS to
45 be special and have repoman not apply ... because that way lies a
46 madness I'm not willing to tolerate.
47 (AutoRepoman has been running for 5 months now and so far there's only a
48 single complaint about me touching packages)
50 Have a divine day,
52 Patrick
