Thanks for the info but this doesn't belong here. The proper thing to do
would be to open a bug on http://bugs.gentoo.org and request a version
bump.

Thanks for replying

I've tried bugs (under admin, iirc), and always get notes telling me
that my version info. post doesn't belong there, and deleting my
submission. If there is a category for version bumps, I haven't figure
it out.


I wasn't going to say anything (I love Gentoo and don't want to be a
complainer), but rtkthunter and chkrootkit are arguably important
packages for newbies like me.


(fwiw, I imagine that others, like me, have a few packages - especially
those linked to online activity, or security issues (e.g. maradns,
runit, rtkthunter, chkrootkit, vidalia, etc.) that are simply maintained
from source, hoping that portage someday catch up :-( )

As I understand it, Admin is meant for administrative purposes of the
Gentoo-project as a whole. I'd post it in Gentoo Linux. Most of the
time, Gentoo Linux is the right place for version bumps. Since this is
also security-related, you could argue for Gentoo Security but this is
meant for Security holes and stuff like that.

Of course, it would have been better if the bug wrangler had
moved your bug to the right place or at least told you where to file
it. If you think you've been treated wrong, feel free to file a bug in
User Relations but I'd rather not. Jakub and the other bug wrangler
might seem rude from time to time but they are doing quiet a hard job
very well when trying to keep pace with the input of bugs. That's why I
wouldn't take such things personally.

Nope..... I'm sure they're busy, and took the message at face value.

'Twould be nice if someone added a little note to the categories
indicating that Gentoo Linux is the place to put version bumps; it might
get more of us newbies involved and "owning" part of the effort.


I'll post some version-bump notices that I've been holding back on, and
see if they "take". (If they don't, I'll come back here and ping you :-) )


Thanks.

They did, its the 'Gentoo Bug Reporting Guide':
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/bugzilla-howto.xml

Also, I'm fairly sure that next to 'Gentoo Linux' (In bugzilla) it says 'If
you are not sure where to put it, put it here...' or somesuch.
