Follow-up Comment #3, bug #19943 (project freeciv): > Do we want to do something like have the initial exchange use > 8-bit fields? Or will we live with the mutual unintelligibility?
I'd have clean cut now to 16bit fields. That's why the change was timed to beginning of entire release cycle. Changing this now would break compatibility with TRUNK between S2_4 branching and now. Best, if one that requires some work, way to do this would be to make TRUNK to somehow work with both 8bit and 16bit fields in initial packets, so it would be compatible with both past and future versions, and only later (when 2.4 is so old that practically nobody uses those versions with 8bit fields) move fully to 16bit fields. _______________________________________________________ Reply to this item at: <http://gna.org/bugs/?19943> _______________________________________________ Message sent via/by Gna! http://gna.org/ _______________________________________________ Freeciv-dev mailing list Freecivfirstname.lastname@example.org https://mail.gna.org/listinfo/freeciv-dev
