#40822 closed enhancement (wontfix)

cairo-devel: use git snapshot in lieu of unstable tarball

Reported by: dbevans (David B. Evans) Owned by: ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.2.0
Keywords: haspatch Cc: cooljeanius (Eric Gallager)
Port: cairo-devel


Since the release of cairo-1.12 cairo developers have released no new unstable tarballs. Attached is a patch to cairo-devel to use commit specific tarballs from the upstream git repository instead. This works around problems with the standard git fetch has been in use here for some time without problems.

Currently cairo git master is at version 1.13.1 and contains functionality based on pixman 0.30 enhancements that addresses at least one important bug inkscape 804162: bitmap downscaling and is not in any released version to date.

This ticket is now moot since upstream has gotten back into issuing unstable releases and a tarball is now available for cairo-devel @1.15.2. If you would make that update at this point, the issue would be resolved for me and the ticket could be closed.
