17 Thank you for the opportunity. Apparently though, my submissions have
18 already been rejected Ciaran. It's important to realize that the
19 submissions were intended to AID the developers, not to necessarily be
20 PERFECT in every way.
22 I submitted the ebuilds in good faith in the hope they would help myself
23 and others get the portage tree wrt ROX up to date and correct
24 breakages. In that my "spacing" was not liked, or my "descriptions" were
25 too long is irrelevant.
27 The ebuilds are fine, and they work. You are welcome to them. As for
28 future development, due to possible problems with the rox.eclass, I am
29 taking rox off-line from gentoo and will maintain it separate from
30 gentoo.
32 As for any open bugs, I leave it to maintainer-wanted. Good luck.
