Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 46175] Full Mingw+MSys support
Date Wed, 30 Mar 2011 17:19:15 GMT

Carlo,

your report...

"I did a quick check on the failure that happens in testfile entry.
This failure happens in test_file_trunc() and it fails to truncate the file
when it is open with APR_FOPEN_BUFFERED flag.
I think there is also a bug in use of SetFilePointer API.
Instead of fixing all places where it is called, I made an utility function
"SetFilePointerApr" that should handle the task correctly and it simplifies a
lot the code too.

is a pretty serious bug.

However, it has nothing to do with the subject of this incident.  Modifying
this patch over and over to fix *unrelated bugs* makes the changes very hard
to follow, puts all of the work on the one developer who's patiently been
going through the suggested mingw/msys changes, depriving him of his time and
depriving the rest of the developers the chance to review this specific bug.

Can you please stay focused on "these requirements to build using msys/mingw"
on this incident, and create new incidents when you spot other bugs, please?
