Re: [gfortran] PATCH ping*5 darwin undefined references to _environ

Thank you for applying this patch to mainline, it does need to be applied to the release branch too though.

Yes, you are right. Paul Brook reminded me that it is a mistake to not apply the same fixes to the 4.0 branch as to mainline, as that will generated confusion in the least and probably real errors.

I'll take care of it.

There is a typo in my email address in the ChangeLog, will get to me, most certainly will not.

Will fix.

And a question, adding your name and email address to the ChangeLog entry is curious as you did not modify the patch at all, did you? The GNU coding standards would seem to indicate that you should not add your name to the ChangeLog in that case. It is possible (likely?) that gcc has different rules for ChangeLog entries and I am simply unaware of them though.

Hmmm, it could well have been covered by the rules to *not* do it. However, the reason I added my name was because I wanted to take responsibility for this change. If after half a year someone comes around and asks on the Fortran list why their code has gone, I can find back why I deleted it.
