I don't even think the maintainer-needed ones should be bumped. Who knows what bugs you are introducing into the tree. This is why things eventually get treecleaned. As Mike said, for ones with maintainers, don't touch them unless you have explicit permission. We have maintainers for a reason, and if you don't know the intricacies of the package, you shouldn't be touching it. You should know how it works, how to test it, and what the normal problems of a bump are. With that being said, I don't really see the point of a bumpday. These day ideas are ignoring the fact that we don't have enough active developers, which is the real problem. -- Mark Loeser email - halcy0n AT gentoo DOT org email - mark AT halcy0n DOT com web - http://www.halcy0n.com
