My 2 cents to the hack vs fix flamewar.

I know as a dev (I develop in python) it is important to have clean code
without hacks and workarounds but this bug affects many applications and most
of them are games.

And gamers want to play their games.

When this means to patch wine source so we can play our game than lets do it!

I would say:

Lets patch us __our__ wine version with hacks/patches wahtever so we can play
or FIX it in the svn and stop moaning.

This is actually the idea behind open source everyone can submit a patch to
make the application work again for him.

I know that there was a discussion that this bug is fixed in a new Xorg release
or something but till this is here and the Distros are using it we can patch
our versions.

I dont see the point as long as the patches are not pasted into svn there is no
problem in the svn code with hacks and stuff and this is actually only a place
where ppl submit their solution to a problem. If devs read this thread and
think omg another hack they have 2 choices:

1. Get angry because of a patch that is not in svn and is not seen in the
actual code

2. See that others try to help other people with a problem in __their__ wine
version and be glad to see the open source spirit around. Then close this
thread and continue to work on clean wine code

just my thoughts
