Subject: [gentoo-dev] Stop altering of current release ebuilds and propagate the changes slowly
Date: Fri, 11 Nov 2011 07:58:58
Hi guys,

In last 3 days i recompiled chromium 3x

1x rebuild for cups useflag
1x update
1x rebuild for cups useflag

If you screw the ebuild up then always think if the change is worth
the stupid long recompile time.
Like it is not enough there is version bump every few days...
Just alter only live ebuild and branch of it with each release and do
not alter the releases unless really critical bug is there. People are
patient and they can wait for bugfixes.

Imagine that I would adopt your approach with libreoffice. I suppose
people would chain me to some wall and use as target practice as
result fo my actions :)
