dbus: tag a release?

Reported by: retroj Owned by: ecloud
Priority: major Milestone: someday
Component: extensions Version: 4.9.x
Keywords: Cc: ecloud
Estimated difficulty: trivial

Description

I have found that dbus TRUNK contains a fix that allows the dbus egg to work on CHICKEN 4.9.0.1 and higher, and without this fix, any program using dbus crashes with the error:

Error: (assq) bad argument type: #f

Can a release be tagged for the dbus egg that contains the fix, please, so that the dbus egg can be installed with chicken-install?

Thank you.

Can someone please do this? It's weird that I have to install chicken-dbus seperately from svn after running chicken-install -s mowedline because I need the SVN version. It's not a lot of work, but people who want to try mowedline out will have a bad first experience unless they know this fact beforehand.

Decided that the best course of action was to fork the egg. It is now available in a coop near you as 'dbus2'. Dbus2 is being version controlled and bugtracked at <https://github.com/retroj/dbus2-egg>.
