Subject: [gentoo-dev] Recursive dependencies with repoman
Date: Sun, 13 Jul 2003 16:04:09
1 Hello
3 Latest repoman seems to enable *all* possible USE flags for it's
4 test. That makes it sometimes impossible to commit because it
5 sometimes hits an app which is not keyworded for non-x86 archs.
7 For example:
9 "net-mail/sendmail" wants "cyrus-sasl" wants
10 "app-crypt/kth-krb" wants "net-fs/openafs"
12 And here at least openafs is x86 only. But i guess noone
13 expects us to mark sendmail "-sparc" because openafs is
14 not available for this arch.
15 Ok, sometimes rar optional dependencies are sometimes not
16 available on a non-x86 arch or theres simply currently
17 no expert available to test and fix hugh projects for some
18 arch.
20 Maybe huge x86? or !sparc? in hundreds of ebuilds could somehow
21 fix this (no expert on those things) but it's nothing which
22 can be done fast and in the meantime things like "sendmail"
23 need to be keyworded and updated.
25 Those highly optional deps seem not to be a huge problem at
26 lest for the sparc users. I never seen a complain about this
27 stuff.
29 Is there some kind of legitimation to bypass "repoman commit"?
