Subject: Handling Launchpad SRC_URI
Date: Sat, 24 Jan 2009 23:38:32 -0800
Right now, there's no canonical (heh) way of handling SRC_URI for
projects that have their files at We need a standard way
of handling Launchpad SRC_URIs, similar to what we do with
mirror://sourceforge/ SRC_URIs.

1. Some packages use the download redirect, which
results in a non-helpful server-generated number:


2. Some hack up interesting MY_P stuff:

PVC=$(get_version_component_range 1-2)
PVC2=$(get_version_component_range 1-3)


The AWN-extras ebuild is the closest to the "right" way of doing it, I

So can we agree on a standard way of treating Launchpad SRC_URIs and get
the handler support into Portage?
