I am trying to make an ebuild that uses the subversion eclass.
This seems to disbehave when used with epatch.
The problem is that epatch directly works on the downloaded svn-sources
(in /usr/portage/distfiles/svn-src) When they have been patched once,
any future emerge will fail because the patch cannot be applied again.
What is wrong here?
By the way, does an ebuild that uses subversion eclass need to state
dev-util/subversion in its dependencies??
The fundamental theorem of algebra is open source. Like any other
mathematical theorem it can be applied free of charge and everybody
has access to its proof and can convince himself how it works. Why
should software be any different?
