I noticed today that the ScatterDraw and ScatterCtrl are missing from the nightly builds (WIN and X11 tar) although they have been present in uppsrc (SVN) for at least 3 weeks.

Maybe it's also the case for other packages ?

Hi Didier,
So this rather old and many times reported problem strikes again... Smile There is a file trunk/uppsrc/packages that holds a list of packages that are meant to be packaged in the releases. And very often (I'd guess every single time in last two years Smile) when some new packages are added, they are not added to this file.

I've already ranted about this a few times before and I'm going to say it again Wink This way of handling releasing packages is very error prone, as is again and again demonstrated... IMHO all packages in uppsrc should be exported. What is not good enough for release, should be moved somewhere else (back to bazaar or to some designated area for obsolete packages) or deleted. Or at least it should be changed to work as a blacklist, instead of whitelist - that would help a lot too since there would be only few blacklisted packages and also it would be easier to remember.

Best regards,
Honza

Hi Honza,

Well I only wan't to use these packages and if they are in uppsrc, they should be delivered automatically. For bazaar this may not be true but for uppsrc, it definitly should.

so +1
