I'll work on this. I've been wanting to create a generic tool (a script,
at least at first) that can be used to record and check milestones, just
to make the implementation cleaner. The implementation of this script is
pretty trivial but it'd be nice to have a tool to keep things
better-organized, so that ".completed" files aren't being created all
over the place with no real organization.
./milestone path/to/milestone/dir prep1
result: if prep1 has not been reached, return 1, otherwise 0
./milestone -s path/to/milestone/dir prep1
result: record that milestone "prep1" has been reached
./milestone -C path/to/milestone/dir
result: reset milestone records
It's such a useful thing, that it'd be helpful to have a tiny little
tool to handle it, and potentially provide additional interesting
capabilties in the future.
This tool could be used by portage and catalyst.
