9 Although [ a ] isn't going to get you your ebuild fast :o)
10 Most devs just close the bug, asking you to make an ebuild and submit that..
11 We already have loads of work, both IRL and on the distro itself, so it's
12 really impossible to start taking requests :o)
13 But you could ask on #gentoo to one of the users there if they want to make
