Subject: [gentoo-dev] Major changes to gdesklets.eclass
Date: Thu, 17 Dec 2009 04:36:33
1 Hi all,
3 I've been wanting to make some changes to this eclass for a while since I've
4 been putting on some bandages to make things work. This is a rather major
5 overhaul. Basically packaging upstream got a lot more regulated since obz and
6 I wrote the original eclass [1], so we can simplify many things. This results
7 in trivial ebuilds, ease of maintaining, quicker installs, and (I think) a
8 better user interface.
10 Anyways, a diff would be useless so I've attached the proposed eclass [2].
12 My plan for updating the tree is as follows:
13 1) Wait until at least 25 January 2010, discussing on the gentoo-dev ml
14 2) As long as there are no pending items for review, I will test with all
15 current x11-plugins/desklet-* ebuilds, diffing the "old" and "new" directories
16 3) Commit the new eclass
17 4) Tweak the x11-plugins/desklet-* ebuilds to remove unneeded variables
19 Please let me know what you think.
21 Thanks,
22 Joe
