Re: Kaffeine bugreport complaint


I had the tedious reading of the bug report and IMHO it's a
valid WONTFIX, if I were the maintainer I wouldn't fix.

The maintainer is going to DROP that code to rely on the work
of another library, so why fixing it?

I might agree that the patch looks simple and doesn't looks like
it's going to break things, but it's not my code.

I'd say you can do 3 things.
1. Fork the thing
2. Make sure libdvd can detect you card (I'd go with this so others can benefit)
3. Ask your downstream distribution to keep the patch, this
is the option that might be easier for you and downstream
have to do this kind of stuff all the time...

It worth nothing coming to this mailing list to complain about
a maintainer, he does that for free and we won't fire him.

Any KDE developer can push the fix but that's not polite, unless
he is not an active maintainer we could do it.
