I have been fiddling with Portage for a few weeks now. Recently, I was
trying to get the RPM creation with ebuild to work a little better. I
noticed that currently emerge does not support building RPMs, but ebuild
I have added some code to emerge that can build RPM for a package and
all its dependencies. It will optionally merge the package to the system
or just build an RPM. I am basically making this work very similar to
the --buildpkg and --buildpkgonly options.
I am using --buildrpm (-r) and --buildrpmonly (-R) options currently for
these two tasks. However, if those two short options are reserved for
some other purpose, I am fine with changing them. (If so, please suggest
different short options).
If this functionality is likely to be useful to other people also, I
would love to submit a patch.
I think I have somewhat older version of portage. Which version should I
build the patch against, if I have to?
