Personally, I think this is a fantastic idea.
Two people (myself & William) put some effort into resolving this
problem, and it WILL bite anyone running Windows 98 (and earlier?)
systems when combined with AIX 5. This is a great way to enable people
to become functional on a stable release. I know I would have
appreciated it ;-) lol..
If you put together a little "bug submitter directions" on exactly how
to get the patches out of svn so they were compatable with the commands
to apply the patch, I do not think it is unreasonable to expect people
that have put the effort into resolving the problem to throw together
the patches. I have all the patches & could put them in one file and
email them to you, but I think they have different "-p X" args.. I had
never used SVN until this little episode. I for sure would not mind
doing it if I had just a little nudge in the right direction... maybe
you can spend the time writing the directions for me instead of doing
it... then I can test your directions :-).
Just a thought... I know it is a double edged sword... if it's not done
properly, it creates more "pain" for the team... so is it worth it to
unload a little work & risk causing yourself pain down the road??? The
normal dilemma of delegation! :-D
