ACK. So it seems more worth, splitting off several larger topics, ie. development to separate lists, or even better discuss things that are not really gentoo specific (ie. bug-fixing within the package) on the upstream's list(s). (At this point, I'd like to remind you on my distro independent QM project ...)

ACK. Such an list could be useful. *BUT*: it doesn't make any sense just talking about it. Simply do it or forget it. Only talking is nonsense. If I was admin, I would have set it up even before writing this mail. cu -- --------------------------------------------------------------------- Enrico Weigelt == metux IT service phone: +49 36207 519931 www: fax: +49 36207 519932 email: contact@×××××.de cellphone: +49 174 7066481 --------------------------------------------------------------------- -- DSL ab 0 Euro. -- statische IP -- UUCP -- Hosting -- Webshops -- --------------------------------------------------------------------- -- gentoo-dev@g.o mailing list
