SUN Patch Day

Laszlo Peter who is better known to be Laca has just announced 11th July 2007 to be Sun Patch Day in an effort to work with community members to upstream all these (skeletons in the corset) patches! Granted there are abut 500 patches, but lots of these are branding patches which means they are included for Sun's specific branding or features.

I personally am responsible for the following patches and I just jolt down some comments to help with community members and maintainers should they want any of these upstream and those should not upstream:

Upstreamable

gnome-vfs
# date:2006-10-20 type:bug bugster:6228176 owner:gheet

# date:2005-04-13 type:bug bugster:6243507 owner:gheet
Patch8: gnome-vfs-08-trash-skip-copy.diff

GTK+
GTK+ Backend for PAPI (OpenPrinting Standard Printing API). Would like to see this upstream and some tidi`y -up is necessary.
# date:2006-09-17 bugster:6494571 bugzilla:382676 owner:gheet type:bug
Patch11: gtk+-11-printing-papi-backend.diff

gnomeprint

# owner:gheet date:2006-04-23 type:bug bugster:6418204
Patch1: libgnomeprintui-01-papi-print-dialog.diff

GCONF
This is a patch I believe may be due to the different between the Solaris and Linux signals system.
I have reported this in http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=143590 but have never seen this in Linux.
#owner:gheet date:2004-06-03 type:bug bugster:5052479
Patch2: GConf-02-daemon-hanged-solaris.diff

gnome-session
This is a patch used by Sun's legacy applications which may run a GNOME GUI should the property GNOME_SM_DESKTOP is set. A useful hack though was refused may be harmless to include.
owner:gheet date:2004-08-06 type:bug bugster:5025823 bugzilla:98481
Patch1: gnome-session-01-gnome-atom.diff

This patch simply changes the purge warning delay to 30 seconds as according to the man page of gnome-session(1).
#owner:gheet date:2005-01-14 type:bug bugster:4978659
Patch4: gnome-session-04-reduce-purge-warn-delay.diff

This is the Trusted JDS patch based Trusted Extensions Framework, this requires some more coordination and review for this patch to be upstreamed.
owner:gheet date:2006-11-03 type:feature bugster:6393728
Patch6: gnome-session-06-trusted-extensions.diff

Non-unstremable

gnome-vfs
Branding patches, none of these should be upstreamed.
# date:2006-11-23 type:branding owner:gheet
Patch1: gnome-vfs-01-default-url-handler.diff
# date:2005-04-26 type:branding owner:gheet
Patch2: gnome-vfs-02-mime-info-file-path.diff
# date:2005-01-31 type:branding bugster:4951431 owner:gheet
Patch6: gnome-vfs-06-socks-version.diff

window-manager
Sun's specific metacity Key binding
#owner:gheet date:2003-07-17 type:branding
Patch2: metacity-02-ctrl-esc-mod4-r.diff

Printing
These are patches that we created to deliver a Solaris print manager
# date:2007-02-06 type:branding owner:gheet
Patch1: printman-01-menu-entry.diff
# date:2007-02-06 type:branding owner:gheet
Patch2: printman-02-help-dir-changed.diff

Sun hipped a version of libgnomeprint-2 in GNOME 2.0 and we have to continue
shipping this set of libraries to maintain backwards compatibility.
# date:2007-02-06 type:brandisng owner:gheet
Patch3: printman-03-pkgconfig.diff

I will on the irc, irc://irc.gnome.org#sun-patches on 11th July 0900-1800 Beijing time.
