Subject: [gentoo-dev] procedure for simple ebuild updates

Hey all,

Just wondering what the procedure is for simple ebuild updates -- curl 
and gaim just had new releases, but the ebuilds only needed to be copied 
to the new rev number (e.g., "cp curl-7.9-r1.ebuild curl-7.9.3.ebuild") 
- no tweeking needed (just needed to 'fetch' and 'digest' to make sure 
it works).

Doesn't seem quite worthwhile to submit an ebuild that's already in 
portage - it merely has a different name...  There's also the fact that 
I didn't write those ebuilds - don't want to appear to be snatching credit.

Thanks,

-b
