Tim Janik last night, blogged about some issues he had
apparently been having with intltool. Of course, said issue is not filed in
and I have never seen the patch mentioned in aforementioned blog entry, until
just now, when looking through planet gnome to discover said entry. You would
think that if a developer was maintaining a patch against a build tool, and
didn't like maintaining that patch, and thought it was a serious issue, that
they would file a bug with said patch, perhaps. But I have not seen any such
bug reported against intltool.
If there are bugs, file them. Complaining in a blog isn't going to get them
fixed, and certainly not any faster.
