I'm sorry to hear in your mail that you are feeling frustrated ("derail into a general complaint…" etc.) as our shared goal is surely to get a good patch out as quick as possible… and if upstream can "bless" such a change, all the better. > So using the ssize_t version that preserves the sizes of the arguments > and return type of the function is the safer choice, regardless of > upstream's claim that the function is private. Upstream have not replied so I will upload and release the ssize_t version shortly. Regards, -- ,''`. : :' : Chris Lamb `. `'` la...@debian.org 🍥 chris-lamb.co.uk `-
