Jacalz added a comment to T8378: v.

I think it is best to leave V where it is and not include it in the repository. It is still very much broken and has gained a kind of cult following with a lot of claims about the language that simply isn’t true. See https://christine.website/blog/v-vaporware-2019-06-23 as the first in a series of posts about it.

Please update the MAINTAINERS.md file as well. I have stepped down as a maintainer, so I will not update it anytime soon and you could thus take over the maintainership if you want. Keep in mind that you would not have been allowed to land this update unless that was the case. The MAINTAINERS.md file usually forbids other people to land patches for the packages.

Jacalz added a comment to T9394: Mimetype lookup broken in Go.

@JoshStrobl Would you mind backporting the MimeType patch when you update Go to 1.16.3, now that it has landed upstream? That would mean backporting my patch https://github.com/golang/go/commit/3e8ba91275cdeb0af4c8b30f9cc788fd42cfbbd3 and https://github.com/golang/go/commit/7b19fb1d560908a848e07e091fb5df61f4848389 (for a bug fix making it work better on other Linux distros).

Jacalz added a comment to T9518: limits.conf Realtime scheduling issue.

My JACK installation was broke at some point and I was pretty sure that it was because of https://dev.getsol.us/T9378. I had pretty much given up, and accepted that as to why it was broken, after all the time I spent trying to get it working. Seems strange that the limits.conf file would be the issue, given that I know that I tested that in what feels like 100 times, but if it is, I will happily accept that :)

Jacalz added a comment to T9518: limits.conf Realtime scheduling issue.

@TeenCorn The best way of testing it (in my opinion) is by opening a project session in Ardour and use JACK. It is going to error and won't be usable if realtime isn't working.

Jacalz added a comment to D10305: Update bash to 5.1.4.

@Jacalz, that's because how bugfix releases of bash and readline work. They don't make self-contained tarballs for minor releases - they release patchsets that need to be applied on top of major release tarball.

Jan 5 2021, 1:45 PM
Jacalz added a comment to D10305: Update bash to 5.1.4.

Just out of curiosity, why are there always multiple patches back-ported from upstream every time bash is updated. Wouldn't it be enough to just use the releases?
Sorry if this is a stupid question, was just wandering as we don't really do so with any other packages unless there are very critical bugs that need fixed.

I think all it does is tell LMMS to fail more gracefully if wine isn't installed at runtime. Last time I had a go at it, it was broken and wouldn't build. You have a version that now manages to build. I figured you could test how it behaves with and without wine installed ;)
