What about asking his (her) opinion to the maintainer *before* upgrading 
it to the "new" version ?


   + kamil<kamil>
     - new versdion 3.0.3
     - disable all patches, they seem merged
     - update URL
     - update SOURCE

As the maintainer, it was to me to take the decision to upgrade or propose something else for mageia.

You have the right to ask me what I want to do with it and to expose your opinion. But next time, ask the maintainer before ! There was no bugreport open for stardict, so no emergency to touch this package.

And in case you are no aware of the fact we have a database for maintainership :
mgarepo maintdb get<package_name>
do the trick.
