I tried to register at bugs.gentoo.org a few days ago and I've heard nothing from them. Is there another place to request version bumps?

The packages:

dev-dotnet/libgdiplus-2.6
dev-lang/mono-2.6
www-plugins/moonlight-1.99.9

I managed to install the first two via my own hack-job-ebuilds, but moonlight seems to require some patching or something, and I don't know how.

Thanks.

Yes that's the only place. And that it takes some tme to get things fixed isn't unusual. Btw I can't find the bugs you are talking about.

The only official way is bugs.g.o. But you could also try to find a maintainer on IRC and ask him or her about the status of the version bump. Or write a friendly email. Just realize that all Gentoo devs are volunteers, and most of us have jobs, families and the like.

Did your spam trap catch it?
