Move up to busybox 1.9.0 and remove now-redundant patches?
|Reported by:||rpjday <rpjday@…>||Owned by:||developers|
I'm curious as to whether this is the right way to go about proposing upgrading to busybox-1.9.0.
Obviously, that version now exists, and moving up to it would affect a few things:
- That top-level busybox/archival/libipkg/ patch could be removed since that directory doesn't even exist anymore in BB-1.9.0. (By the way, why was that single BB patch sitting way up there when the rest of the BB patches were under package/busybox/patches/? Just curious.)
- I'm guessing that a number of the patches under package/busybox/patches/ (if they represented actual bugfixes) were added to BB-1.9.0 and could therefore be removed, although I haven't examined each one to verify any of that, so I don't have an actual list.
- There is already a small set of patches to be applied to BB-1.9.0 at http://svn.busybox.net/downloads/fixes-1.9.0/ so I'm also guessing that those might need to be added to the patches/ directory here.
Does the above reasonably represent how one creates a ticket for an enhancement like this? Thanks.
