It's still being edited, so I have no idea whether I'm commenting on the
same version as was originally posted. Regardless, here's a few points
on the version I'm reading:
- pkg_pretend() and a default src_install() would be excellent to have.
- docompress is good
- doheader/doinclude would be nice, same for dodoc -r, doins symlinks
- fixing problems in some existing features would be useful
- I understand the reasoning for the SRC_CONFIGURE_WITH blah stuff. I
strongly oppose this implementation because it makes ebuilds less like
bash scripts that are easy to understand. Instead I suggest extending
use_with() and use_enable() to accept multiple sets of arguments
(alternately, making custom, similar functions that will take multiple
args). Combined with the addition of src_configure() in EAPI=2, the
amount of code could be a large reduction from existing versions without
raising the barrier to entry.
