Re: [PATCH scfg 3/3] Add scfg-rs, a rust scfg parser a day ago

From Simon Ser to ~emersion/public-inbox

All pushed. Thanks for contributing a Rust implementation!

Yes, CC-BY-SA 4.0 is the intention. Slightly edited your commit to make
this even clearer by including the version in the link text.

There is also a LICENSE file containing the full license text, but I
guess it doesn't hurt to provide a link as well.

Re: [RFC PATCH] Multiline strings 4 days ago

From Simon Ser to ~emersion/public-inbox

Both Caddy and POSIX sh just allow quoted strings to span over multiple
lines, so I was considering not adding any new syntax and simply remove
the restriction that quoted strings must be single-line. What do you

[PATCH lists.sr.ht] Don't strip timezone information on import a month ago

From Simon Ser to ~sircmpwn/sr.ht-dev

datetime.replace discards the previous timezone. Instead, convert to UTC.

This fixes ordering of messages in a thread when each has a different

Re: XDC2020 buffer constraints a month ago

From Simon Ser to ~emersion/drm-constraints

I just noticed this TODO in the notes:

Heaps IDs are identified by a plain-text name (see dma_heap_add in
include/linux/dma-heap.h). Anonymous heaps don't exist, and heaps don't
have an ID.

We'll probably want to change this. A device may want to grab a heap ID
to be able to express local constraints, but it's probably undesirable
to expose the heap on the filesystem.

The merging library and the allocator need to support all constraints anyways,
and the version is just an int per constraint, so I don't think this adds a
