Subject: New herd: ayatana
Date: Thu, 24 Nov 2011 20:57:07 +0200
we have a new herd called ayatana (i'm currently the only member, but
anyone intrested is free to join)

it's aimed at maintaining the ubuntu -invented libraries many apps tend
to use thesedays:

$ grep -r "herd.*ayatana" */*/metadata.xml
dev-libs/libappindicator/metadata.xml:  <herd>ayatana</herd>
dev-libs/libdbusmenu/metadata.xml:  <herd>ayatana</herd>
dev-libs/libdbusmenu-qt/metadata.xml:  <herd>ayatana</herd>
dev-libs/libindicate/metadata.xml:  <herd>ayatana</herd>
dev-libs/libindicate-qt/metadata.xml:  <herd>ayatana</herd>
dev-libs/libindicator/metadata.xml:  <herd>ayatana</herd>
gnome-extra/indicator-applet/metadata.xml:  <herd>ayatana</herd>
net-im/indicator-messages/metadata.xml:  <herd>ayatana</herd>
x11-misc/notify-osd/metadata.xml:  <herd>ayatana</herd>
xfce-extra/xfce4-indicator-plugin/metadata.xml:  <herd>ayatana</herd>

and perhaps x11-misc/glipper

summary:

- keep all the libs and apps using them in sync, since upstream changes
API so often, when you bump one library, you have to bump or patch them all

- ditch gtk+-2.0 and move all libraries to gtk+-3.0, this will likely
mean lastriting indicator-applet and glipper

- add more of the project into portage after gtk+-3.0 migration is done:

note: i'm going to be superbusy with work up until x-mas so don't expect
much to happen "too soon"
