Subject: [gentoo-dev] Last rites for app-shells/ash
Date: Sat, 24 Mar 2007 13:08:28
1 app-shells/ash is based on a very old netbsd sh and also uses an
2 equally old Debian patch. ash currently has no maintainer. This package
3 has since become dash upstream, which we do have in portage and is
4 maintained by me.
6 The irony is that ash requires /bin/sh as bash to compile as part of the
7 Debian patch uses some bashisms - lol.
9 As such, I will mask it at the end of next week, pending removal in 30
10 days.
12 Thanks
