If I had the time to compose such a description, or a test patch, I would have. The world needs to start thinking in terms of helping me do the work of sparc maintainence, instead of constantly expecting me to magicly come up with all the answers and the test patches every single time. I have to confide in everyone how deeply disappointing it is over the years that this situation continues forever and nobody tries to help me in a truly meaningful way. Everyone can test things, nobody can fix or implement things. We have enough testers, and nearly no fixers. I'm getting older, slower, and more bogged down in networking maintainence. And hey I'd like to enjoy life too, believe it or not. So people need to step up and help or else I can guarentee you that the sparc ports will continue to deteriorate. -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe sparclinux" in the body of a message to majordomo@×××××××××××.org More majordomo info at -- Ferris McCormick (P44646, MI) <fmccor@g.o> Developer, Gentoo Linux (Sparc, Userrel, Trustees)
