[haiku-development] Re: Fwd: Re: Question : Haiku + Transmission

Here is a reply from Charles, who as you recall was the person who
initially queried me.

(from ticket #1682 on Transmission's Trac)
Comment(by charles):
 I mostly agree with livings124 on this.  I don't think it's unreasonable
 for a network-intensive program to require ipv6 hooks in 2009.

 One possibility, until Haiku actually gets ipv6 support, would be for you
 to maintain a patch that you could apply when building for Haiku.  If
 there are other, non-ipv6 related issues that could be fixed in the main
 Transmission codebase, I'd be happy to take a look at those.


I replied to him privately :

 Thank you for providing a reasonable alternative that will hopefully
allow Haiku to use Transmission 1.51+  in the intertrim.   I'll pass
your message regarding ticket #1682 to fellow Haiku developers and
will do my best to get the ball rolling for implementing both IPv6 and
MiniUPnP, as well as identifying other potential issues.  Once again,
I appreciate your consideration for OS's that aren't Windows, Mac or
use a Unix-or-BSD-like kernel.  :)

------

To me, this is an actual path that we can use.  I'm hoping that if
such a patch is ever implemented, Charles may be willing to include
some Haiku specific build option to patch the sources.
