Day of Mistakes

Filed under: Experiences — abbe @ 0241

Yesterday was the day of mistakes. It all started with me submitting updates to my FreeBSD ports maintained by me: x11/libxcb and x11/xcb-proto. I initially submitted both PRs of both ports in misc category. When I realized that I’ve posted in wrong category, then I reposted them into ports category. But at the same time, some FreeBSD committer changed category of my old PRs from misc resulting in duplicate PRs. Then they discarded the duplicate PRs. And then, within an 5-6 hours my port x11/xcb-proto is committed and for x11/libxcb, I received a bug report. Oops, I’d forgotten to include graphics/graphviz as BUILD_DEPENDS, which is causing doxygen to fail during documentation generation.

Finally, XCB v1.0 is in ports :). Thanks to FreeBSD porters for not shouting on me. So from next time, I’ve to be careful not to make any silly mistake.
