Ciaran, as you know the only people that used kdebuild-1 were the ones using the KDE overlay to track live ebuilds. Even though Wulf has recently showed that some people are still trying to sync from his box (even though the git repo was removed more than 2 weeks ago), the vast majority has either switched to one of the methods currently supported by the KDE team or has decided to move to exheres (and thus exherbo). In any case, it was used in an overlay, following an unapproved spec that was only supported by a single PM - which is not the official Gentoo PM. It's surprising that people wanting to follow live ebuilds are still trying to sync from a repo that stopped actively following upstream quite some time ago - long before the repo was deleted. It would be useful to have an idea of many users we're talking about, but given the former, I have a hard time believing the number of users is large. - -- Regards, Jorge Vicetto (jmbsvicetto) - jmbsvicetto at gentoo dot org Gentoo- forums / Userrel / Devrel / KDE / Elections -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.13 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla - http://enigmail.mozdev.org/ iEYEARECAAYFAkslS40ACgkQcAWygvVEyAIqmwCfRCKoSX+5moJ8JvvgniGqDWOt LFkAmwbSwxN0B9QD4z7j1GMOvnG4yt0+ =dU+V -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
