I released a new patchset for vlc today, and now another package require a complete patchset. It’s currently having a lot of automagic dependencies, that are not fine for Gentoo, and I’m going to try make them useflags so that people can get rid of the things they don’t want.
Luckily, the upstream seems alive so I can actually ask them to merge them so that next version does not require a complete patchset.
I have to say, also when I try to keep on break, there are currently too many packages requiring love, and I can’t really stop patching for more than 24 hours. Tomorrow night I’ll be out of home as I’ll have a sort of party with my friends for my birthday (that was last monday), so I won’t be at home, but I think tomorrow afternoon I’ll be again patching something.
Sometimes I wonder if this would ever help me finding a decent work. I don’t think there are lot of workplaces where people are asked to apply patches to software they didn’t wrote in the first place 😛
I need to find a work, as soon as possible, I still have to complete paying the iBook and it requires maintenance, and I would really make use of more machines to help me with testing 😐
Not counting that I still have to be paid for the translation I made, and counting on that money to buy a new amplifier, I was thinking of a Onkyo HT-S580, after a suggestion of a friend of mine, but anyway it will be available only after the middle of the month in the near shop 🙁
