Subject: [gentoo-dev] Per-category and per-package eclasses

1 Hi folks,
3 The other night, some of us in #gentoo-uk got talking about per-category and
4 per-package eclasses, the idea being that each category, and each package,
5 could have it's own 'eclass' subdirectory containing category- or
6 package-local eclasses. This in addition to having global eclasses in
7 gentoo-x86/eclass.
9 For example (totally hypothetical), the php-sapi* eclasses would be a primse
10 example of a category-local eclass (their only used by the PHP SAPI ebuilds).
11 I can't find any eclasses that exist currently that'd be a good example of a
12 local-eclass, but hopefully you get the idea.
14 Thoughts ? Anything I've missed ciaranm ? :)
16 Best,
17 Elfyn
