Re: When are Patches pulled in ?

i have noticed that my Patches for #1745607 never made it into release
altough the Status of the bug is „Fix released“. I am a bit
confused now because I understood that „Fix released“ means „the
patch has been merged into the main tree“. Is that not correct ?

Please do not get me wrong, i do not want to complain about this or
need it for my ego 😊 . I am just trying to understand how and when
patches go into release, so if someone could shed light that would be
nice. Thanks!


Hi Daniel-

Looking at that briefly, it appears that you set the status to "Fix Committed". This probably caused it to drop of folks' radars. Something that is in that status means that the patch has already been pushed to the repository (but hasn't been released in one of the releases).

I've reset the status to Triaged and set a milestone so that we add this during the v6 cycle. We are already in a string freeze for our translators for version 5.1, so we won't be able to push it until the development opens for 6.

Sorry for the confusion--hopefully we'll have a better bug system in the not-to-distant future that will help prevent this. And thank you for contributing to KiCad!
