Well, I thought we have a couple people capable of tweaking urpmi's code very
very better than me, but yes, I can try to move earth and heavens, ask for
help because I don't know urpmi and MageiaUpdate's code at all, and try to
make sure the problem is fixed soon. I'll say "the problem must be fixed before
the 18th of september, please help me doing it right or you risk having me do
Or I could trick someone into becoming the maintainer and tell him/her to fix
the bug per the packager team leaders' will
I think you underestimate the power of a decision. Once a decision has been
taken, then your "minions" can stop chatting and move together towards the
goal. The objective is clear, the the saying "when there's a will there's a
way" is often really true.
So, who can help me ? tv ? blino ? pterjan ?
