Could someone assist with applying my simple patch in 518393?
 
I was advised to bring up my request on this list:

"Gtinydns id not created, but two other id's created"
https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/518393

I see release after release of Ubuntu, and the bug report is not getting activity.

I even went so far as to supply the needed patch/diff. All that is needed is for a developer to apply the patch.

Suggestions?

Sincerely,

Convert the patch to a debdiff and subscribe ubuntu-sponsors [1].

In order to do that do I need a Natty GUI box, or can I do the debdiff process on a Lucid GUI box?

The normal process is to subscribe ubuntu-sponsors. There's really no
need to convert it to a debdiff though, although some sponsors will
request this for some reason. I'm not sure why though, as adding a
changelog entry takes an additional 10 - 20 seconds on top of the time
that the sponsor should be spending on reviewing and testing the change
before they upload.

This culture of rejecting anything good that doesn't have a debdiff
needs to stop, as it's completely frustrating for contributors.

I will review it later on if nobody beats me to it.

Regards
Chris

There are two types of contributors: prospective Ubuntu developers and
drive-by contributors. For the former it is perfectly ok to request a
debdiff. They need to learn the tools. For the latter it is too much
overhead.

The argument for having a debdiff: In a debdiff you have a real name and
an email address. The patch author gets the credits.

That or the sponsor spends another 30 with their editor and gives the patch author credit.

You may have the name of the author, but not always the email address.
Sometimes you only have a nick name and nothing more.

PS: The quotation in your response is totally broken (see above). Is
this a bug or misconfiguration in your or my email client?

Thank you, Chris!

I think it shows enough interest on my part that I located the file that needed to be updated and supplied the diff to said file.

Others would probably just put up with hand adding the needed account(s).

It's a bug in my email client. That's the third time it's happened in the
last month. I've no idea what triggers it to do that now and then.

Sorry for the confusion,
