First of all, I (and on behalf of the dev crew in general) greatly
appreciate all the hard work being put in by so many to resolve these
win32 issues. The advice, testing, and patches are all more than
welcome, strongly encouraged. HOWEVER, due to the volatile nature of
the code (as evidenced by the roller coaster ride of fixes and ensuing
regressions), please refrain from committing anything (pertaining to the
win32 render problems) that hasn't been verified by Mike Pritchett, KJD,
and TomasF. Patches are wonderful but should stay just that, patches,
until verified. Send them to the list and let others test (others,
whoever you may be, please do test).
Furthermore, while 2-0 shall indeed remain rather active for a while
(with bug fixes, documentation, and any work that can't be done amidst
the insanity of HEAD), it is still a STABLE branch. It needs to stay
that way. No non-approved non-trivial commits. Even after a
backportable patch has been committed to HEAD, that extra level of
verification must be attained before it is committed to STABLE.
Again, I really appreciate the work being done, but it must be "done"
before it is committed.
On behalf of Joe's Bait and Tackle
