Re: [error-report-web][PATCH] report-error.bbclass: Add layer and bitbake version info to error report

Thanks, Richard for responding.

I completely understood your point and appreciate the effort you people make to maintain these repositories.

But as a contributor, It encourages me to contribute more when my work gets noticed/criticized/accepted by the community.

Anyways, I hope that the community resolves these issues as soon as possible so that there won't be much delay in updating the patches sent by the contributors.

Thanks & Regards,
Milan Shah

Sorry, that isn't true, they are important and appreciated. We're 
just struggling to handle everything.

The challenge/problem has been that there are much older patches which
were half merged and broke things. People have rightly been complaining
about those issues and Khem for example has been carrying a patch for 3
years to work arond that problem. I did figure out a fix for that which
has now been merged.

We also needed to migrate the service from py2 to py3 and deal with a
set of patches that had been applied locally that we had been unaware of
until very recently but which complicate things. The people who wrote 
them are no longer around to help with that.

The original authors of this code are no longer around, the people who
stepped up to try and help also haven't had time so the support/review
has struggled. The service is in daily use however so it is important
and that is why I'm now trying to unravel and fix things.

I do want to get to your patch but you can appreciate that adding it
directly on top of an already failing set of changes wouldn't be good
for anyone.

We are making progress in resolving the issues so I hope to get some
kind of better answer to you soon.
