I am Nth on this. Although I do a lot of l10n work in the beautefull less bureocracy FreeBSD time and very appreciate what Gabor did, the problem is in other area: BSD grep simple not ready for wide testers circle and needs to be polished further. I talk not about it speed alone but about all its bugs revealed right after import. Let few ethusiast who have spare time for experiments run at at now. What we need is rock stable grep, and changing regex library for speed don't add anything here. From my point of view importing of the latest GNU grep instead would have more benefits. And we need to pend BSD grep with all its can of bugs for a while, until faster regex will be imported (disadvantages must be balanced with somewhat sweet). It is not my final verdict and we'll can return to it after all serious bugs will be eliminated. Right now we'll have f.e. numerous report agaist wrong greeping dirs which are unacceptable for any development system including even non-production one like -current. -- http://ache.pp.ru/ _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
