Sorry, I have to reject this patch. The code was broken on purpose to draw the porters attention to the spot, so that it will be fixed the next time he gets a chance to work on it...

But in that case you failed in your purpose, as it was not your breaking that drew my attention to the "spot", but rather the patch.

A mail on the list would probably have been more efficient. In particular if it would also suggest what should be done instead.

comment:4 by fingolfin, 16 years ago

Well, I inserted code that shows what should be done instead, didn't I? :-)

comment:5 by zeldin, 16 years ago

Maybe, I haven't actually checked HEAD yet... :-)

Anyway, if a better solution is already in place, there should be no need for broken comments, should there?

comment:6 by fingolfin, 16 years ago

The code is not fully functional (in particular, this "patch" wouldn't allow the code to be compiled); it should be a trivial matter for anybody with a DC dev system to make it complete, though. But w/o any way to test this, I didn't dare to insert complete code which then could potentially lead to mysterious failures. Hence I inserted a sketch of the proper code, and a comment, hoping that whoever tried to compile the code next would submit a proper fix for the issue (this "patch" isn't it, though, as I said, it won't even fix compilation :-)

So it would seem that the plan failed then. :-)

Hopefully I'll have some time to look it through tomorrow.
