Re: When are Patches pulled in ?


Hi Seth,

ah, okay, i was not supposed to change the status. It seemd naturally for me to set it to „Fix Committed“ after i thought that i‘m done with it.
PEBCAK as usual 😊 

Thank you for the help!

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 

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!
