1 Hi
3 I think an integration would, like Hallski said, bring too many work and
4 questions to the developers. Maybe a site that holds user-built cvs ebuilds
5 would be nice, where the user can download the cvs ebuild he wants,
6 on his/her own risk... Ofcourse those ebuilds have a big change of being
7 full of bugs and/or useless, because most of the incoming ebuilds have to be
8 debugged before being placed in portage, and the ones on the site wouldn't
9 have had a checkup at all..

16 || Last night I was sitting on IRC and conversing with pekdon in #gentoo
17 || about e17 (Enlightenment DR 0.17) and the possibility of having compatable
18 || ebuilds that work for software in development using CVS.
19 ||
20 || We came to the conclusion that we could have a directory in Portage
21 || called cvs which is masked by default to prevent people not familiar with
22 || cvs software from accidently downloading it. We would also not provide
23 || support due to the nature of the software and we could enter disclaimers
24 || on the ebuild asking for y/n input.
25 ||
26 || Please let me know if this is do-able as I would really like to see this
27 || happen so we can still maintain a clean system with up to date software.
