Patches for libraries used by C::B/plugins
« on: February 06, 2006, 02:28:28 pm »
Hello,

I have a question to the C::B admins/devs. I would like to know if I can post at SF patch that solve warnings concerning libraries (not wxWidgets) used by C::B and plugins.

For example, by compiling wxAUI, I get some warnings which I can fix. Should the patch be posted to SF (C::B) or to the project in question or to both?

Thank you very much.

Best wishes,
Michael

I''d like to see them also gone in CB, even when at the author's project they don't update yet. I would be so happy to get to 0 warnings, 0 errors, and ..... 0 bugs  :P

Yes, this is my opinion too :D. The problem is that if we fix warnings for e.g., wxAUI, then we should do the same again when we will update it to the next release (not sure anyway). I think that a coordinate approach should give the best results. Post the patch to SF-C::B and SF-Project.

absolutely correct. But as long as the author does not fix it, nothing stops us of doing it ourself, with the danger of a repeated task on updates.  :(

Yes, I agree. Unfortunately for huge library as e.g., wxWidgets this would be rather complicate (and may be not feasible). Anyway, nothing better that trying to provide some patches to know how C::B and plugins work :D.
