Fwd: 30+ patches in BugZilla.

Hey, I dunno if everyone here watches the f-spot devel lists, but I
saw this, and found it to hit a little close to home. Beagle is in
much the same position with 31 unreviewed patches in Bugzilla, while
more of those patches have some sort of comment, several have
bitrotten past the point of easy revival, despite their usefulness. A
few (such as child indexables in the file system and an archive
filter) have been outstanding with some time now, and have no clear
definition of what still needs to be done. I know I have submitted
several patches over the past week or so and have not heard much about
them. Overall, the message bellow just seemed relevant.

Subject: 30+ patches in BugZilla.
To: f-spot-list gnome org


I went through some of the F-Spot bugs with an attached patch, and I am
not to happy with the result to be honest. Some of the patches have been
there for almost 16 months, a few around 12 months, and quite a lot around
5 months. This is time with more or less no comments and feedback. No
indication if the patch should be accepted, or what the problem is with
the patch for it to be accepted.
I can imagine a lot of people out there happily creating a patch, and then
no response at all, or some good comments in BugZilla, but the patch do
not appear in F-Spot at all. A lot of these people will likely not send in
another patch unfortunately.

I see some comments that the patch is not solving it to 100% or is just a
workaround for a fault in another product. But the fact that there is a
bug in BugZilla indicates that there is a problem, and a possible patch
fixes it (hopefully). If it is not perfect, lets include it to HEAD, and
fix it over time (new bug reports). If it is not F-Spot's fault, lets
include it for now, perhaps with a CONFIGURE directive that will disable
this when the other product are fixed.

HEAD should not always be perfect. The relased stable versions should be
more reliable. Or?

Below are some of the bugs with associated patch. In no other order than I
found them.
Some of them seems to be very very simple, and should have no problem to
be accepted.
Some of them are much more complicated and more thorough check and test
would be appropriate.
All of them deserves more feedback though. And if the patch is
unaccaptable, please state that. If nothing else we also need to keep the
amount of bugs down (by fixing the fault hopefully :) )
