Such a target could open up $EDITOR and allow you to drop some lines about why you think it's worth putting it in. But here's something you don't seem to have considered. You're supposed to have already tested the build before you request it. This means you've seen the build complete, you've installed it somewhere, you've made sure that what you're trying to fix is actually fixed, and you've made some assurances that no regressions were introduced. Kind of hard to do all of that before you build the package. -- Jesse Keating Fedora -- All my bits are free, are yours?
