EzraRif a backports request has a patch attached is there something I can do to keep it off the radar of patch reviewers?02:48
EzraRi cant unsubscribe ubuntu review team but it doesnt need reviewed02:48
nigelbEzraR: who reviews backports?03:04
nigelbsru team?03:04
EzraRbacubuntu backporters?03:11
EzraRnigelb: ubuntu bacporters03:11
EzraRi guess03:12
nigelbcan you point me to a typical backport request?03:13
nigelbEzraR: oh, wait, its off the radar of patch reviewers03:14
nigelbbackports and requested against a different project03:14
nigelbfor example lucid backports are requested here https://bugs.launchpad.net/lucid-backports03:14
ubot4Launchpad bug 602733 in lucid-backports "Please backport K3b 2.0.0 to lucid (affects: 1) (heat: 10)" [Wishlist,Fix released]03:16
nigelbEzraR: if you notice the launchpad project name, its not against ubuntu03:16
nigelbthe patch review script only checks against ubuntu03:17
EzraRok then i probably ran into because the person that filed the bug also set "also effects" to the package which they shouldnt have and I allready fixed03:17
EzraRthank you03:18
nigelbour script is a bit "aggressive"03:18
nigelbPlease file a bug against ubuntu-review-overview if you feel it has encroached into backports, we'll modify our script :)03:19
EzraRno i dont think it really did, the bug reporter shouldnt have filed it against ubuntu03:20
EzraRalthough if the script skipped reports that also were against backports it might save some waisted energy03:21
EzraRnot that there is a lot of such cases...03:21
nigelbhm, I'd encourage you to file a bug about it03:22
EzraRyeah now that i think about it it still gets ubuntu-review notified about it and if thats what you guys use to keep track of the queue it might affect the accuracy03:24

mac9416Hello, all. I'm a simple Python dev who wants to help with Cleansweep. I've never reviewed a patch before. Heck, I've never patched a file. I'm wondering if I can get come help reviewing this simple patch: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/leafpad/+bug/40557622:11
ubot4Launchpad bug 405576 in leafpad (Ubuntu) "Leafpad clean up GTK Include (affects: 3) (heat: 19)" [Undecided,New]22:11
mac9416Thanks, ubot4.22:11
mac9416I've managed to get the latest source for Leafpad, patch it, build the package, and install it. Everything appears to have worked fine. So, what now?22:13
mac9416I'm supposing I should forward this thing upstream. Is that correct?22:23
yofelindeed, now to find out where to find that upstream..22:27
mac9416Hi, yofel. Question: could the upstream be something other than Debian or GNOME?22:28
yofelsure, we and debian package software from all around the web, launchpad also supports quite a few bug trackers for that reason22:28
yofel(for bug watches)22:29
yofelthe package description sent me to http://tarot.freeshell.org/leafpad/ btw...22:29
mac9416OK, but that doesn't mention anywhere to report bugs...22:30
yofelhm, there's http://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/leafpad but that doesn't mention how to contact upstream either :(22:32
mac9416Is it possible that its a GNOME project?22:32
yofelmaybe send the patch to debian so we at least don't differ from them (maybe they know more)22:32
yofelnot sure about that, at least google only mentions it in relation to lxde..22:34
yofelnigelb: can you elaborate on patches and the Debian BTS?22:34
mac9416So, when I forward a patch upstream, basically what I'm doing is reporting a bug to the folks who run the project and asking them to apply or reject the patch?22:37
yofelyes, you report a bug at the upstream BT (or send a mail to their maling list for some projects) and add the patch to it22:39
mac9416OK, what's a BT?  :-)22:39
yofelsry, bug tracker ;)22:40
mac9416Ah, kk. I'm new.  :-P22:40
mac9416Looks like I can use reportbug -B debian --attach=path.diff to send the bug report and patch to Debian. Sound right?23:04
yofelin general yes, maybe use '-T Patch' to add a tag too, also there's https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Debian/Bugs and https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Debian/Usertagging23:06
yofelthe wiki page uses 'reportbug --bts debian -P 'User: ubuntu-devel@lists.ubuntu.com' -P 'Usertags: origin-ubuntu maverick ubuntu-patch' -T patch' for example23:07
mac9416Wow. Looks like I have some reading to do.23:08
yofelbut as I said, I'm not sure there, we're supposed to get a session in #ubuntu-classroom about the Debian BTS soon23:08
yofelit's a whole ecosystem in itself ^^23:09
mac9416Looks like I can use submittodebian to forward a patch. Nice.23:18
mac9416Eh, maybe not. Looks like it expects _me_ to have made the diff.23:21
mac9416yofel, should I go ahead and forward that patch, or should I hang out and wait for nigelb?23:29
yofelhm, not sure, let's see if the others are there.. persia vish23:32
mac9416Will the maintainer of the package be notified when a bug is reported?23:38
yofelactually, no idea, but I hope so23:44
