With all due respect for your rpm.org maintainership, this hasty decision
is very disappointing to say the least, both from organizational and
technical points of view.
Silent reversion of contributed patches is definitely not the right way
to attract young talented contributors to the project, just the otherwise.
If one has some issues with the patch that was submitted to this mailing
list and reviewed here, the very least that's expected from an experienced
and polite maintainer like you is to bring these issues back to this
Please prove me wrong, but there was no urgency in reverting this commit
without prior discussion the way you did. If you brought the issue here,
you'd promptly got an answer that the patch is correct and those
thirty-something testcases have been broken because of test suite
Indeed, how could you expect them not to break if the tool you use for
testing - fakechroot - is simply not aware of LFS-capable fts in libc?
Adding fts64* support to fakechroot isn't rocket science.
In fact, we have a patch in testing already.
