I have some questions; see below ...

You can ask one of the GNUstep developers -- why does the gnustep-2
eclass have a dependency for gnustep-back?  Not all GNUstep-based
applications are GUI.

I have other questions/comments about your ebuild, which will help get
it accepted by the Gentoo devs:

* KEYWORDS should be ~x86/~amd64 until it has passed the testing phase,
not x86/amd64

* Use "cp -pr" instead of piping with tar

* Don't hard code the paths for "openapp" and "oolite.app" in your
wrapper script.  If there is a working GNUstep installation, openapp
will be in the PATH, and the app will be found by openapp through
GNUstep.

* Your DEPEND and RDEPEND are really confusing.  Specifically:
- Why are the versions for stuff under x86 in RDEPEND, but not in
DEPEND?  Doesn't amd64 need those minimum versions?
- Also, doesn't amd64 need x11 and gnustep-env?

Typing this now, it looks like mr_bones already made some comments on
bugzilla -- hopefully with that and this you can polish off the ebuild.


Best,

Sourav
