does it make sense to request a version bump for entropy if a newer version is even not present in the portage repositories?
Or do I have to request at Gentoo's site first?
(I wonder why the most recent version of ANTLR v3 is 3.1.3-r2 (from 2009!) in Sabayon's entropy- and Gentoo's portage-repos. In January version 3.5 was released.)
I recently filed a version bump request for gcc 4.7.2 . When looking through the list of all open requests I noticed that some are obviously outdated (Libreoffice 4, tb 17.0.3, klavero 1.94, puppet 3.0.1, enlightenment 0.16.99...) but have status UNCONFIRMED.
Is it a good idea to send a hint with those outdated bug numbers to email@example.com
, or not
