Hi there, does anybody know why Gutenprint 5.2.12 still hasn't made it

Just follow the links :-)
The bug mentions the submit request. In there it says
"Request got declined, 5 months ago, Unless there is a need for static
libs (and they be put into -devel-static), they should be removed."

The package itself is developed at
https://build.opensuse.org/package/show/Printing/gutenprint
and the latest submit request that went in was exactly fixing that issue:
https://build.opensuse.org/request/show/479243
but it seemed no one ever submitted it again to openSUSE:Factory. The
bot obs-autosubmit at least did not do this, I don't know why. So I just
created a submission now: https://build.opensuse.org/request/show/514115

You can follow on in there what is happening.


In most projects the submission to factory is not done by a bot, when
the maintainer accepts the request there is a box they can untick which
means it won't be forwarded to factory, My guess is the maintainer
decided not to forward that request to factory for some reason.
