Sigh.

After talking to peper, I've been trying to get it running with snapshots recently (in my overlay), with mixed success.

Does anyone here know anything about the 0.40 release - will it be before or after Duke Nukem? (No commits so far since I was waiting for any information about that.)

Samuli, I'll revert the mask tonight for the moment (removing and then soon re-adding makes no sense), until I know more. If the project remains as sluggish as it is now, it should go the way of the dinosaur, though.

No you won't unless you make it actually compile and work. Just look at
the bugs.

You can adjust the masks to exclude your new snapshots/versions if you
want, though.

And peper's reply is here:

As sorry I am I didn't have the time to work on it further, it also
didn't quite turn out what I expected it to. So ack from me.

Fine, let's drop it out of the tree then. This was mainly intended as a statement of "someone is keeping half an eye on what is happening and whether things will improve".

Guys you have a communication problem. Even though you are QA and can do whatever you want it would probably help your public image if you just add to the original e-mail "acked by peper" / "acked by maintainer"...

Cheers, a

Sorry but it really matters very little whether maintainer acks at all,
*if the package fails to build*.

We're not talking about a single problem with a single package.
