[gentoo-dev] status of ruby 1.8.7?

2008-12-17 Thread Hanno Böck

We have ruby 1.8.7 in the tree masked since April.

# Richard Brown rbr...@gentoo.org (16 Apr 2008)
# Masked for test

There's no tracker bug or anything alike about the status of unmasking, so I 
wanted to ask what's the status here.

Beside, I'd like to repeat that I think it's a very bad idea to add new 
packages to package.mask for testing without any further information. 
Usually a tracker bug is a good idea, but any other note where to find 
information what needs to be done to get things ready is fine.

Is that some huge package that takes an unreasonable amount of time to 
build or space to install? If not, this doesn't seem like a very 
meaningful choice to me.

Re: [gentoo-dev] Automatic filing of stable requests

 From both a maintainers and arch-developers view: I'd like to see
 automatically generated stable requests, but I'd leave it up to the
 maintainer/herd/team to add architectures after a quick review (also
 if there's a auto-stable-request tag set in metadata!).


So let noone CC arch teams except maintainers. I've seen that go wrong
in the past. For arch team members that means thoroughly checking who
CC'd whom, but I guess that's a given. :)

Kind regards,
