is far more important IMO, and it's pretty hard to get the motivation together to test 60 packages instead of tinkering around with a new idea. At least for me it often is. -- Kind Regards, Simon Stelling Gentoo/AMD64 developer -- gentoo-dev@gentoo.org mailing list

we need is more people who do actual testing. If you're forced to be in an arch team you're just a dev tag in a project page, not more. This is not going to help at all, in fact it will only hide the problems even more. -- Kind Regards, Simon Stelling Gentoo/AMD64 developer -- gentoo-dev
