Subject: [gentoo-dev] Change or revert the "30 days maintainer timeout" stabilization policy
Date: Wed, 02 Apr 2014 16:58:32
1 The "30 days maintainer time out" stabilization policy isn't working
2 when package has multiple SLOTs, because
3 the bugs are filed for only latest SLOT, where as some packages require
4 stabilization in sync at both SLOTs
6 Option 1:
8 Either revert the whole policy, and never CC arches on unanswered bugs
9 when the package has a maintainer,
10 and let him do it when he finds the time himself, and if that doesn't
11 happen, wait until it's dropped to maintainer-needed@
13 Option 2:
15 Or, the person who is CCing the arches in 30 days timeout, needs to make
16 sure the bug covers all SLOT at the same time
19 The status quo no longer allows me to maintain stable version of
20 dev-libs/girara, app-text/zathura*, and the issue needs
21 to be addressed, see for what inspired
