11 But, doing that requires viewing realised copies of ebuilds, which
12 requires interpreting eclasses and variable interpolation, which
13 requires bash sourcing, which requires a mountain of portage hell.
15 Yes, sharing the stable-bot logic would probably be fine.
17 But it doesn't use a database AFAIK, it would likely just be making use
18 of the MD5Cache (either directly, or indirectly via portage APIs)
20 But I won't be volunteering, because I won't touch python.
