    Phoronix: GitLab Now The Main Development Platform For Wine

    Earlier this year Wine began experimenting with GitLab to improve their development workflow for this open-source project that allows Windows games and applications to run on Linux. It's now been decided that the GitLab workflow is useful and will now be their path forward...

    It makes a lot of sense to make submitting bugs reports and MR/PRs easier, especially for projects focused on end-users. Just create and account, click on "submit issue" and type whatever annoys you.

      Seemingly not yet: "I think Gitlab is working well for us, and most people seem generally happy with it. So my plan is to go forward and make Gitlab the main development platform for Wine".

        If they did it so far with their arcane ways, I can definitely see an improvement in participation.

        In projects like DXVK you cannot do much without having deep knowledge in modern graphic programming, but in wine there are millions of small tedious tasks (almost) anyone could take care of.

          Now I'll finally have an accessible place to ask questions about Wine issues, too. I've had an old game close to working but it brings up a Macromedia Director Player error about needing to shut off virtual memory in Windows. I have no idea how I'm supposed to fix that in Wine.

            Shame that they didn't choose Codeberg.

              I hope I'm not the only one who had to do a double take when they read Wine's still developed by passing patches via email. It's one thing to use a crap version management software like SVN, which like meth you shouldn't try even once. But you wouldn't expect even total amateurs to try and develop something as big as Wine without at least some version management software.

                Apparently they did use git but they sent pull requests via email. At least that's what I'm reading on Reddit.

                  The version management software in this case is an obscure, niche little program called git. Don't know if you have ever heard of it, it seems pretty popular amongst the nerdy types, like programmers, etc. /s

                  The "mailing list" is git's default workflow, that's how git is meant to work in a group of people. Centralized server workflow came much later.

                    yeah Gitlab is super slow, even slower than Github. Atleast finding issues will be easy.
