Bug#4269: xosview has only XOSView as application resource file
> Package: xosview
> Version: 1.3.2-6
> Xosview only reads the file XOSView (and ~/.Xdefaults) when evaluating
> its X resources. It does this by doing all the reading by foot (calling
> XrmGetFileDatabase() etc.).
> This is IMO the wrong way to do it; the application should use
> XtGetApplicationResources() (as xsysinfo does it).
You're absolutely right.
The upstream maintainer disagrees (well, he agrees, but doesn't want
to change it, AFAIK).
do you want me to
1 move xosview to 'contrib', and stop maintaining it
2 just go on maintaining a broken xosview?
Sometimes, I really don't know what to do.
Use Debian/GNU Linux!
