Patches, patches, patches...

To forestall potential incidents of Warnock's Dillemma...

I'm about to apply a whole heap 'o patches to Parrot. (With 
appropriate [APPLIED] responses, I hope) If, at the end of the day, I 
have *not* applied or commented on a patch you've sent, it means I've 
Officially Missed It, so give another try.

Sorry 'bout this. Too much mail in the mailbox, and going back in 
time is tricky, as it can miss subsequent discussions on patches 'n 
stuff.

To maybe give you some help, I applied:

2 of my own patches that I sent to the list, 1st was the register frame
stack bug fix, 2nd was to make stacks keep their size.

1 of Mike Lambert's large patches that fixed several GC bugs titled:
  "Complete, Mainly-GC Patch"

Steve applied Mike's large computed goto patch.

The rest I didn't touch as I was unsure about.

I think there is at least one outstanding patch from Brian Warnock called:
"stacks.c"

one from Peter Gibbs and Mike Lambert named:
"Parrot_(re)allocate_buffer"

This is not all, I'm sure but I hope this helps you sift the mound.

Yes, rather a lot--thanks.

Hmmm, looking in my outbox, I see only one recent patch of mine
that mentions stacks.c, and its been applied.  (Although I don't know when.  
It could have been applied recently.)

Did I sneak one in somewhere else that I can't find?

Patches, patches, patches... #2
OK, this is advance warning that I'm about to be reposting a bunch of patches of mine which appear to have succumbed to Warnock's Dilemma. The first three should be uncontroversial: there's a documentation fix-up for core.ops, and new tests for strings and stacks. The last one is rather larger, and consists of a greatly expanded set of tests for PerlString's, plus a bunch of bug-fixes. I'd be grateful if Jeff or Dan could take a look at this, as I have the feeling that a lot of the scalar PMCs are going to need similar fixes. Simon ...

BlackIce Patched or Not Patched?
ISS recently released a patch for the much published denial of server venerability in BlackIce Defender. Yet, eEye referred to the venerability as a buffer overflow. My question is ... does the newly released patch cover both? The ISS site does not refer to a buffer overflow. Does that mean that even after installing the patch BlackIce Defender is open to a buffer overflow? (not good if so) I've taken BlackIce offline until I am certain that it is fully patched. Thanks in advance. Tom Correction: Denial of service venerability as opposed to denial of server. (grin) ...
