Subject: layman and filesystem permissions
Date: Thu, 08 Jul 2010 18:51:09 +0000
As some of developers noticed, current gpypi2[0] implementation (tool
for querying Python Package Index to create ebuilds) needs root
permissions for two reasons:

- to write ebuild in overlay managed by layman
- to unpack source for setup.py introspection with "ebuild foobar
unpack"

It just seems wrong for such a tool for the need of root permissions, so
I'm asking what are the options to drop layman to root:portage or
something similar.

Discussion about the approach is open, I'm not *really* sure what would
be the proper way.


Cheers, Domen
