Agreed. However, am I the only one who wouldn't start doing an ebuild _before_ okay or timeout? Chances are too high to work for the trashcan. I recommend a plain post of this text to an affected bug: I hereby request this bug and package to be opened to non-maintainer bumps. Unless this bug is closed before April's bumpday (2010-04-17) or any of the maintainer objects I may take the liberty of bumping this package from April's bumpday on. Sebastian
