1 well of course I dont really start a flame war, so I hope its not inevitable ;)
4 I asked some questions here 3 months ago, about how DEPENDs in an ebuild
5 can be formatted, when some software can use either of 2 libraries, to build and
6 run, but not both at the same time, and both libs have their own useflag.
8 well I got some answers, tried them out, and it didnt work with strange errors
9 (probably portage caused, but dunno), then I used an approach which someone told
10 me to be "deprecated", and it worked flawlessly :)
12 I submitted the ebuild to
13 bug #47130
17 which then laid idle for over 3 months and is still not in the portage tree
19 so my slightly impatient question, why is it being ignored? If it doesnt conform
20 with some convention or has bugs, please tell me, i can fix that.
22 Motiontrack is my own project, so its no problem for me to release or modify
23 the ebuild for new motiontrack versions when I release them, this way
24 maintaining the ebuild.
26 hell that project is even developed under gentoo linux, it'd be a shame if
27 theres no ebuild for it.
