Subject: [gentoo-dev] [RFC] Eclass for gnome-python* split
Date: Fri, 23 May 2008 22:01:23
1 Greetings All,
2 I've been working on an ancient bug [1] requesting a split of the
3 gnome-python, gnome-python-extras, and gnome-python-desktop ebuilds.
4 The motivation behind the split is that packages that depend on a
5 single module or a small set of modules from one of these packages end
6 up pulling in the numerous dependencies required when pulling all the
7 modules in the package (example -- nautilus gets pulled in because of
8 a dep on the gnomeprint module).
10 I have split these 3 packages into packages for the component modules.
11 Since there was a lot of common functionality between these packages,
12 and the 28 modules' ebuilds were basically very similar, I've split
13 out a large amount of the required functionality into an eclass. The
14 work is heavily based on Jim Ramsay's (lack@g.o) work on splitting
15 gnome-python-desktop.
17 The split ebuilds are available via a git repository [2]. The actual
18 eclass can be viewed online at:
20 (full URL [3])
22 Feedback and comments (and even brickbats ;)) on the eclass are invited.
24 [1]
25 [2] (branch is
26 g-py-split)
27 [3]
29 Cheers!
