Re: glib2 on NetBSD/i386 3.0 using pkgsrc-2011Q1

Hi all,

3.0 is quite old. It doesn't suprise me that nobody is testing this old 
version, anymore. That makes me wonder how packages and patches are tested. Are 
committers only testing them on their plattform and commit if they work there?

On linux and solaris things break much too often. It's no fun upgrading 
packages. Right now, essential things like firefox don't build on intel/linux.

Wouldn't it make sense to ask (or force?) committers to test packages and 
patches in VMs for operating systems that are easy to set up such as intel 
linux and intel open solaris? How about setting up a build farm of various 
plattforms and require commits to successfully build on these machines?



Scotty: Captain, we din' can reference it!
Kirk:   Analysis, Mr. Spock?
Spock:  Captain, it doesn't appear in the symbol table.
Kirk:   Then it's of external origin?
Spock:  Affirmative.
Kirk:   Mr. Sulu, go to pass two.
Sulu:   Aye aye, sir, going to pass two.
