On Wed, Jan 18, 2012 at 01:41:53AM +0000 I heard the voice of Igor Mozolevsky, and lo! it spake thus: > > The problem, however, lies in the time between a patch is submitted > and is "picked up", if the latter ever occurs!.. That is where the > discouragement occurs. Quite. For instance, we're now well past the 3 year mark since I submitted docs/127908, which fixes 1 sentence in a manpage. So far, I can't see that anybody but me has ever looked at it. That doesn't serve to encourage me to nibble at anything substantial. (In fairness, I should note that I also maintain several ports, and so submit a steady trickle of PR's there. Almost none of them take more than a week from submission to application and closing, and it's fairly common for it to be less than 24 hours. I know the ports team carries a huge load with such things, but they're carrying it well.) -- Matthew Fuller (MF4839) | [email protected] Systems/Network Administrator | http://www.over-yonder.net/~fullermd/ On the Internet, nobody can hear you scream. _______________________________________________ [email protected] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-hackers To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[email protected]"
