Actually, Allan said he dislikes that concept
entirely and refuses to
merge it at all because:
- CFLAGS+="-flto" should be set in
makepkg.conf, not libmakepkg
- PGO will not be a thing because "I am not
adding an option to makepkg
that does non-deterministic optimisation." 3) PGO that involves makepkg being
context-sensitive between two makepkg
runs, is not an option; use a wrapper script
Lack of time is not the issue, in fact, Allan
has reviewed *lots* of
pacman/makepkg patches, and merged lots of them,
in the time he has
refused to even consider these.
That was the beginning but it seems you didn't follow the discussion, see: https://lists.archlinux.org/pipermail/pacman-dev/2016-April/021028.html https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1628371#p1628371
Failing testsuites mean that real issues will
never be discovered, which
means the whole point of running testsuites is
nullified. So no, it is
not a minor bug.
Sorry, but that's pure speculation. Did you asked upstream if this bug is serious or the actual maintainer ask them? If one Arch user didn't report it it would be never fixed.
I don't know why openssl 1.1 is still in
testing. But I do know that
merely assuming it is ready to be moved today
except for that package,
is rather naive. I am going to assume that the
Devs have actual reasons
for what they do.
Again you speculate. I've seen to many times maintainers forget about their packages for months until other devs name them explicitly in arch-dev mailinglist.
Aside: your emails seem to be wrapped in an
over-aggressive manner, why
such short lines?
I'm very sorry. I was annoyed that discussion is moving out of topic. That was inappropriate
