I opened a bug report about this on January 22 -- 8+ months ago --, but
the fact doesn't seem to impress those the Arch devs much. It certainly
didn't impress Vegai much, who has been assigned the bug but doesn't
seem to give a damn about it:


Xyne, you are a trusted user in ArchLinux, right? Is there any way that
I could maybe submit updated PKGBUILD files and have someone, anyone,
put them into the abs repository?

Take care,
