Don't think anybody has time or will to cherrypick patches or update from

Who's talking about "vcs"?

Christoph mentioned svn.

And I am not asking about *backporting* to some earlier version of
openSUSE but I am talking about the very latest, just released, openSUSE

vcs is any Version Control System, including svn. It is a generic term
for cvs/svn/git/bzr/hg/anything.

Thanks for this information - I didn't know this.

Grabbing patches from future (e.g. unreleased svn) upstream code is the
definition of backporting. So yes you are asking about backporting.

We obviously have a different different definition of what "backporting"
means. I now know what you mean by "backporting".

What we have been trying to tell you repeatedly

Ce? Who had been trying "to tell [me] repeatedly"? First I've heard that....

is that nobody is going
to do a new build of kaffeine just for you for this one fix,

...the above.

Nor have I asked for this to be done - just for ME.

(Calm down my pounding heart...)

wait till
kaffeine upstream releases a new version (1.0pre3 or something)

Then who has been "officially" releasing versions 0.9+1.0pre2-9.1 and
*.pre2-9.3 (the first being built on Tues 3 Nov and the second on Wed 25
Nov and both containing the SVN patch dated Sun 4 Oct)?

So, what you are saying is that these 2 "releases" are unofficial and,
as such, should therefore not be available for download and installation
on something like openSUSE 11.2?

officially and we will package that release then, probably in
KDE4:Backports or similar.

As per the kaffeine website 1.0pre2 is the
latest release and that is the version that is packaged in openSUSE.
That is all the packages are obligated to do.

Again - Ce`?!

The package available in oS is v 0.9+1.0pre2-9.x.

I think we have a problem with clarity here caused by the use of too
many abbreviations.

Are you stating that there is a version1.0pre2?

Otherwise if this one fix is important to you, instead of always asking
others to do the work, just copy the kaffeine package on the OBS (into
your home repo or something) and add the necessary patch.

Firstly, it is always easy for those who know what they are doing.

Secondly, I do not know what the patch is which Christoph put together -
he didn't tell me.

While I don't
want to sound negative or patronizing, it's not terribly hard
considering the effort going into complaining atm.

And how simple would it have been for whoever built the latest version
of kaffeine (0.9+1.0pre2-9.3) on the 25 November to have included the
patch Christoph wrote and submitted on 18 October?
