Description Jan Beich freebsd_committer 2020-05-27 07:49:20 UTC
libglvnd abstracts away vendor-provided libGL. Currently, only Mesa and NVIDIA are supported. In future, multiple Mesa versions may co-exist.

See review D25020 for the patch.

Can someone explain why exp-run hasn't been performed yet?

According to the review the patch was not approved by maintainer.

I'm disappointed in portmgr@ for facilitating the deadlock situation after x11@ said "it has to be thoroughly tested".

Existing deadlock aside, this seems like an odd stance to take. If I'm maintainer of something that's worth doing an exp-run for, I likely will not approve of a patch until I also see the consequences of the patch on reverse dependencies. i.e. maybe I approve in principle, but I want to see that due diligence is done before putting that on paper.

Antoine, do you have any numbers on how many exp-runs we end up not doing over some period of time because a maintainer doesn't approve of the patch?

I think it makes sense to revise this, because I can't imagine this is saving us all that much, resource-wise.

I don't want to waste an exp-run if x11@ is going to reject the patch even if the exp-run is successfull.   x11@ should speak up.
