Off Topic

Hi,

Please resend this email to the libc-help mailing list.  The libc-alpha mailing list is only for GLIBC development related comments, patches, and questions.  Questions regarding building or using GLIBC are outside of the scope of libc-alpha.

Inlined ChangeLog

%%%
Hi,

You have modified the glibc ChangeLog file contrary to the guidelines outlined here:

http://sources.redhat.com/glibc/wiki/Contribution%20checklist

Please don't modify the ChangeLog file in the source code.  That is handled by the maintainer.  Remove your ChangeLog from the diff body and have it precede the diff as indicated in the aforementioned link and then resubmit to libc-alpha.  If you need help formulating a proper ChangeLog please email the libc-help mailing list.

Don't converse with the moderator

Build Errors

%%%
Hi,

GLIBC configuration or build failures should be reported to the libc-help mailing list.  While it is certainly possible that there is a build breakage due to a recent patch, the majority of all build failures are due to incorrect or inappropriate GLIBC configuration.  If there is a real problem the libc-help mailing list can help identify a fix that can then be brought to the libc-alpha mailing list.    The libc-alpha mailing list is only for GLIBC development related comments, patches, and questions.

libc-alpha moderation staff

Insufficient Analysis

%%%
Hi,

The issue that you are reporting may be a failure in GLIBC, but it is too light on details.  Please either re-post it to the libc-help mailing list for community discussion, or add further analysis to your next libc-alpha email.

libc-alpha moderation staff

Feature/Enhancement Requests

%%%
Hi,

If you want to propose a new feature or enhancement in GLIBC but cannot prepare a patch yourself right away, please consult the libc-help mailing list first; we will help you decide whether such a feature is appropriate for GLIBC (frequently, problems are best addressed in other ways) and what would be the best way to address your original issue. Afterwards, the discussion may move to the libc-alpha mailing list in case implementation issues need to be addressed, or you can file an enhancement request in the GLIBC bugzilla at http://sources.redhat.com/bugzilla/ based on the feedback you have received.

libc-alpha moderation staff

Wrong Mailing List - Locale

Hi,
