Re: Archer functionality in Fedora 11

Hi Rick,

please include also archer-jankratochvil-misc as since Archer start I commit
there changes that would go directly to Rawhide before.  For example at least
these two will soon be required to be present in Fedora to satisfy RHEL

Please make sure you have these branches in as good a shape as you want them as I will be merging them in the next few days.

It would be nice if everyone could update his branch against `master' to make Rick's life easier.

Thank you Jan, I meant to mention the updating branch against 'master' in my original email. That would indeed be a great help.
If you have something to add to your branch, let me know and I will hold off
merging it until you give the go ahead.

archer-jankratochvil-vla currently (still? it is a new FSF GDB testcase) has a regression on `gdb.base/miscexprs.exp'. To be fixed in the close days.

OK, cool.
I will be using the archer-tromey-python as the base branch for the merge
and all other branches will be merged in with this.

When thinking about it you should "base" (the current branch you have checked out when you call `git branch') it IMO from `master'. As otherwise it would mean you should also `git-rebase' for archer-tromey-python but `git-merge' (or `git-pull') for other branches and the GIT changelog would be out of the chronological order.

Whether you initially start the branch from `master' and do one clean
`git-merge' or create the branch off some other branch probably does not have
any effect on the result (does it?).

Probably not important, just thinking about branches equality. :-)

Yeah, good point. My git foo is not nearly strong as yours, so any ideas are welcomed/encouraged.

Thanks for the input Jan. I appreciate your time.
