Heh... your email from 9:30 PM didn't sound like you had done anything
yet "Yes, these components are clearly bogus. We need a better list. I
can add them if someone tells me what to add.". :)
Looking at the new list, I think that Cygwin/cygwin isn't really needed
anymore since there are no remaining known bugs caused by the weirdness
of Cygwin. Just as there isn't a Linux/linux component, there probably
shouldn't be a Cygwin/cygwin component. If someone reports a bug to
Foo/bar and it starts sounding fishy and the user happens to be on
Cygwin, then I could be CC'd to weigh in or take over... other than that
it should be just a generic bug that they have found.
I still think that "server" is too generic and that in this area the
user should specify at least what ddx they are running since a problem
in darwin proper is of no concern to people working on other ddxs.
I think that "Server/general", "Server/cygwin", "Server/darwin", etc.
would be a good start. If a user files something in "Server/cygwin"
that I determine to be generic to all ddxs (e.g. os, dix, or Xext bug)
then I can just refile it to "Server/general"; the same goes for if a
user files a bug against any other ddx, just change the component if it
What do you think?
