3. Linux Distros Making Incompatible Changes To System Tools
26 Nov - 27 Nov (18 posts): [PATCH] modutils 2.3.20 and beyond
Elsewhere, Keith Owens [*] (modutils maintainer) said, "I have a big problem with Redhat. They make incompatible changes to utilities, do not feed patches back to maintainers then expect the rest of the world to follow their lead. The -i and -m flags to modutils are not the only example, I recently found IA64 and Sparc patches they had added to modutils code and not bothered to tell me. Other distributors are much better about sending me patches, Debian and SuSe in particular do the right thing."
Mir gings auch um das Verhalten von RedHat den Entwicklern gegenueber.
