Subject: [gentoo-dev] procedure for simple ebuild updates
Date: Thu, 24 Jan 2002 17:23:00
1 Hey all,
3 Just wondering what the procedure is for simple ebuild updates -- curl
4 and gaim just had new releases, but the ebuilds only needed to be copied
5 to the new rev number (e.g., "cp curl-7.9-r1.ebuild curl-7.9.3.ebuild")
6 - no tweeking needed (just needed to 'fetch' and 'digest' to make sure
7 it works).
9 Doesn't seem quite worthwhile to submit an ebuild that's already in
10 portage - it merely has a different name... There's also the fact that
11 I didn't write those ebuilds - don't want to appear to be snatching credit.
13 Thanks,
15 -b
