iptables 1.4.21-3

With respect to  bug 33478 , what ever happened to early start? I see that nftables.service includes

[Unit]
...
Wants=network-pre.target
Before=network-pre.target

but there is still no such thing in the iptables.service or ip6tables.service files.

What was the resolution here?

Thanks. Let's look:

Ok - did you look at the date? The current iptables package is

Version : 1.4.21-3
Build Date : Wed 25 Mar 2015 03:56:47 AM MDT

and today's Date is 2015 Jul 15.

It seems to me that, if the iptables package is never rebuilt from the updated source, then the source revisions are of no value. So now, the issue would be, how many months should elapse before the iptables package is rebuilt and distributed from the current source?

And incidentally, is it really appropriate that an Arch Linux bug be closed before a revision propagates to distribution?

Yes, I looked at the date. You asked what happened, I gave you a link.

That's up to the package maintainer.

Ok - thanks - got it.

Uhm - help me out, here. Is this not the correct place to "ping" the package maintainer? Or I should contacted the package maintainer directly, instead?

You can try to contact him directly or you can request the bug be reopened if you think it's been too long. Opening a new bug isn't the way to do it.
