Control: tags -1 + patch

Hi,

For my work in making PAM configurable in Guile, I rely on the foreign
function interface (FFI). The automatic generation of that interface
requires the compile-ffi script in nyacc. Unfortunately, the highest
version we ship suffers from a bug that prevents the script from
running on the pam_client.h header in linux-pam. This patch upgrades
nyacc to the version Matt Wette released after committing the fix.

The changes are further documented in the commit message.

I am new to Guix and already use the new version of linux-pam locally
(via Guix System) but I was unable to test the patch according to the
requirements and recommendations listed for this submission. [1]

This email was sent to -devel in lieu of -mentors, which does not
exist. Any guidance is much appreciated. Thanks for taking a look!

KInd regards
Felix Lechner

While the contents of the patch look good, you're missing the standard
ChangeLog format for the commit message, see "(standards)Change Logs".

I would recommend something along

Toggle snippet (5 lines)
[Your message]

* gnu/packages/mes.scm (nyacc): Update to 1.07.0.

Also, I think that inline patches are preferred, even though the manual
says that MIME is fine too. The usual advice is to just use
git-send-email to send patch series, which will take care of everything
itself (you can check out a tutorial at [1]). You could send a v2
patch, or maybe a maintainer will add the necessary format themselves
and commit, whichever comes first :).

In any case, thanks for your contribution!


Best,

The patch is perfect; I only adjusted the commit log so that it follows
the ChangeLog convention, as Josselin pointed out:


I also check that dependents, as reported by ‘guix refresh -l nyacc’,
all build fine with the new version.

Thanks,
Ludo’.

PS: guix-mentors now exists!
