Huh? How does building a package use up your valuable time? Sure, it uses CPU time, but you can still do stuff in the meantime. Timesharing is neat like that. Besides, how do you fix a bug without testing the fix first? How do you know it's fixed? Do you just close bugs that you're guessing are fixed without testing? > And if there is in fact a build problem with my package, again the > only person who is inconvenienced by it is myself, which is as it > should be. Not if your untested package introduces new, much uglier bugs. -- I'm sick of being the guy who eats insects and gets the funny syphilis.
