What this line means?
Here are my thoughts/questions/suggestions:
> - switched to libfetch in place of libftp
Thank you for this, Aaron! :)
> - attempt to speed up file reading by reading /desc and /depends
> on demand
> - fixed the download progressbar
This is mentioned somewhere below IIRC.
> - downloads are interruptable again
> - new libalpm function: alpm_db_search()
Should be removed.
> - pactest: initial import, run make check to call it
> - makepkg: recoginze .TGZ, .ZIP and other uppercase extensions
What does it mean?
Does case or extension make any difference for makepkg?
> - python: added a few casting functions
> - new function in libalpm: alpm_db_setserver()
> - incremented libalpm's sover due to new error codes intruduced
> by alpm_db_setserver()
Should be removed.
> - added python bindings
Also java and perl should be added here.
> - fixed problem when sometimes ^C was ignored
> - new pacman option: --ask
Nice, didn't know about it.
> - makepkg: bugfix for suboptions=('nostrip')
Should be removed as we don't have subpackages support
> - - pipe and parse scriptlet messages. see man FrugalBuild
AFAIK this was merged into our pacman3.
> - ia64 support
> - gettext improvements
Should be removed because of:
+ - added gettext support
> - French translation
> - pacman: display uncompressed package size by default on upgrade
Only if repo db contains this info.
> - initial support for pkgdesc localization
How is this realized?
I doubt about usefulness of this.
> - - gpg support in makepkg
Hmm... That was for package signing?
> - - offer deleting a packages if it is corrupted
Doesn't our pacman3 has this? I rememer feature request for this.
> - - new pacman option: --noscriptlet for disabling install
> - scriptlets
Why was this needed for?
> -18.104.22.168 - makepkg now allows to inherit install scriptlets from a
> - scheme
That would be nice. I remember a feature request for this.
> - - added SBU variable to makepkg.conf
What is SBU?
> + - fixed logging everything twice to pacman.log TODO:
> dan- i think i saw this happen when i installed things
Isn't this line of patch corrupted?
