> @Christoph Wickert > You review an old package...
No, I haven't really started the review yet. :) I only wanted to show Aurelien
that there were some warnings in the package he reviewed and that he did not
post them the review.
Please stay tuned for a complete review.

> No, it's not required to inspect the source code of a package under review.
The guidelines state that all (build)requirements need to be met and this can
only be checked by taking a look at the source. Not only for shell scripts, but
also for code and for Makefiles. Do you have a better suggestion how to do

The list got so long because of the merge reviews and we are caching them now
because of the 'review with flags'-thing. Back in the days when we used blocker
bugs there it was not necessary to cache the pages.

That's what sponsors and cvsextras at fpo are for. People should look over other's
commits. I as a sponsor have set up filters and I take a look at every commit
of my sponsorees, at least until I trust them enough.

Agreed, but I think it is very important for new packagers to get detailed
reviews in order to learn the packaging guidelines. If they get sloppy reviews,
they are going to do sloppy packages. A detailed review can be done within less
than an hour, so this can't be the reason for this bug being open so long.

Ok, will do. Can you sponsor Guillaume afterwards?
