Subject: [gentoo-dev] ACCEPT_LICENSE revisited
Date: Sat, 18 Nov 2006 20:31:56
1 Hi,
3 in the past weeks Jason, Zac and myself have been working to implement
4 license based visibility fitlering (aka ACCEPT_LICENSE). This is also
5 discussed in GLEP 23, however the original versions of that document
6 didn't quite go along with the implementation and lacked some details.
8 So here is a new version of it, the main changes are:
9 - added definition of license group files
10 - added license group negation semantics
11 - updated proposed portage behavior to match current implementation
12 (using visibility filtering system instead of blocker system)
13 - added requirement for default ACCEPT_LICENSE in profiles
15 Anyone interested in this feature should review the attached version.
16 Unless there are major objections (or we find large problems in the
17 implementation) this will be merged in one of the next portage releases
18 (definitely not in 2.1.2 though).

25 In the beginning, there was nothing. And God said, 'Let there be
26 Light.' And there was still nothing, but you could see a bit better.
