Sync terminfo to upstream ncurses #335

Closed
opened 10 months ago by rumpelsepp · 2 comments

I did some research and I found these mailing list threads.

Pushing the terminfo upstream should make life easier in the longterm, especially with ssh. But it might be a bumpy ride to get it included and syncronized with upstream though…

This has been discussed, briefly, on IRC: https://freenode.logbot.info/foot-terminal/20201228

21:19 ifreund  what does it take to get a new terminfo into ncurses?
21:20 dnkl     ifreund: not sure. Maybe just sending a patch to dickey. It's been discussed before, and at that time I said I'd prefer foot's terminfo (and thus foot) to stabilize before we try to upstream it
21:21 ifreund  ah yeah, don't want to get locked into something suboptimal just yet
21:23 ifreund  I wonder how many years it will be before I feel comfortable stabilizing river's protocols
21:23 dnkl     ifreund: yeah, even if we can make changes to it after upstreaming it, it will take time for those changes to trickle down to users

But eventually we will try to upstream it, for sure. I just don't think the time is quite right yet.

Apparently, Thomas Dickey went ahead and added it himself: https://invisible-island.net/ncurses/terminfo.ti.html#toc-_Foot

But, see #671 and #670
