Sorry, I repost the message here even if norsetto has already anwered
but I think this is my day I push "reply" and not "reply to all" and
gmail seems to be stupid when a ML is only in CC
Great work Cesare. I was planning to do such a thing in the near
futur, but you make it first
The missing thing for me is to link to a bug that wait for sponsor
(for instance, I have updated gnome-volume-manager, gnome-spell and it
is waiting for sponsoring). Even if the sponsor time seems to be
really short for desktop package (thanks to all of you!), it would be
a pity if someone would double the effort:
- Maybe making a "bugs linkage" or "updater" editable field? (like in
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DesktopTeam/TODO) would avoid that. Making the
field empty each time a new version appeared
- or using the LP API to grep for bug title for this ubuntu package
containg the sponsor + correct numbering version to automate this?
What do you think about that?
Once again, congrats for you work. I'm sure seb will appreciate
