1 Hi all,
3 as nattfodd and ehmsen won't be working on TeX for Gentoo anymore, we
4 need one or more new maintainer/s. Primary goal is to bring a working
5 ebuild of TeXLive 2007 into Portage, as the current used and working
6 one (teTeX) is dead upstream. There is an effort of a user [1] which
7 could be a base. Non-devs welcome as long as they do all the
8 work. First start can be that I proxy (= You do all the work, I get
9 the glamour for committing :) a willing and capable user, recruiting
10 him can come later on.
11 Just email me, Gentoo Army needs you.
13 Profile:
14 - TeX knowledge (but not just using, you should know how to handle
15 formats)
16 - Makefiles should be no secret to you
17 - fast computer (compile time is baaad)
18 - high tolerance against frustration
19 - knowledge about Gentoo's current TeX system, ebuildism can be handled
20 by me
22 You get:
23 - a warm feeling because you help so many people
24 - a beer/whatever_you_prefer from me when we meet in person
25 - a first step into a great community (it is
26 after all)
27 - a build system maybe only you will understand after digging into if
28 for months without social contacts
29 - a load of bug reports assigned to you
