Resolution: duplicate
Status: newclosed

Closing this ticket as these packages (except Bazar) already have tickets created and there is insufficient data on this ticket anyway.

In the future, when you create a ticket for a new package, we need information. What the package does, what is the home page URL, why do we need it, what does it support, etc., etc.

Please consider using the Wiki initially. At this point, William, I think you are just pulling our chain trying to be aggravating. And if that isn't your intention, well, that's the way you are coming off.

You don't/won't do any research before you create tickets. Please don't create any more, except for things that are problems you've found in the book that need correcting. And provide a solution, if possible.

If you want Bazar in the book, here would be the approach you would take.

  1. Create a Wiki page for the package.
  2. Send a message to the -dev list saying that you've

created a Wiki page for the package and you'd like the *community* (not just you) to review and decide if it should be in the book.

  1. *After* it has been discussed and the *community*

thinks it is a good idea, then, and only then, we'll create a ticket.

I hate imposing such strict rules on this for you, William, but you've left us no choice.
