DataDrake closed T9411: compiz reloaded 0.8.18 plus experimental plugins as Spite.

We've been over this. You are being pushy. The answer is and always has been "no". It's not going to change no matter how many times you ask it and no matter how many places you make the request.

DataDrake added a comment to T9390: Add QT5 bindings for Free Pascal - for newest version of GOverlay.

Lazarus supports targeting multiple GUI libraries to build interfaces. It does it at compile-time in the IDE, so I'm guessing qt5pas is the wrapper for it. I'd rather not require qt5 as a hard dependency for Lazarus, so I think patterning it out into a qt5pas package makes sense, so long as that library doesn't end up with a circular dep.

While I appreciate the amount of detail you've gone into, I don't really know enough to say what the root cause is. You'll probably want to reach out to the Firefox team and get their opinion. It's possible that it's not supported at all on Linux for various reasons.

DataDrake closed T9237: HP Notebook - 15-da0001nk Sound mute led not working as Wontfix.

We haven't hear back in over a month, so I'm going to assume this patch hasn't been tested. Without testing, I won't just add it to our kernels. If @stalebrim wants to go through the effort of testing it and upstreaming it,I have no problem using a kernel with those fixes or backporting it to one of our kernels.

DataDrake closed T9246: Surround sound audio not working Pulseaudio as Wontfix.

With the exception Dolby ProLogic and some other things, there's no way to inform the OS how to handle remixing stereo audio for surround sound. If PulseAudio doesn't support something like Dolby remixing, then that's their problem, not something we can fix. Otherwise, it's a codec issue where the audio you are trying to play can't communicate that information either. It may be the Windows or macOS have a fallback for these scenarios, but no such thing exists on Linux to the best of my knowledge.

We aren't comfortable with the legal ramifications of a Youtube viewer that automatically downloads content without forcing you to engage with the Youtube ToS in some way. We can't take the legal risk of being sued for shipping an application which makes piracy, intentional or otherwise, so easy. This isn't like a podcast downloader where the content provider expects you to download the audio for consumption and it's not like a bittorrent client where anything can be downloaded. It's a client for service which provides primarily copyrighted material which is not distributed under a Creative Commons license.

DataDrake closed T9374: Package Request for software: LunarG Vulkan Ecosystem Tools, also known as VulkanTools as Wontfix.

We aren't going to ship two different versions of vulkan-tools, especially not a version that isn't designed to work our vulkan stack. As I've said in other tasks, your issue with Intel is probably that the supported version of Vulkan is too old and you will need to wait for a newer Mesa (> 20.3).

Sat, Nov 14, 3:40 PM · Package Requests
DataDrake claimed T9376: Update mesalib to 20.2.2.

FYI. This won't actually fix your problem because the newer Vulkan support for Intel on Mesa hasn't yet been included in an actual release. It only just landed in master on 11/2 and that means you won't see it until Mesa 20.3 at the earliest.
