Subject: [gentoo-dev] pdf use flags
Date: Mon, 16 Jan 2006 21:57:15
1 Checking for pdf use flags I just found that there are currently at
2 least three different flags for pdf stuff in the tree:
3 - pdflib (global)
4 - cpdflib (global)
5 - pdf (several local ones)
7 All of them mean basically the same (one exception, see below).
8 I suggest we unify them to one single global "pdf" flag. The following
9 packages would be affected by this:
11 $ metascan -v IUSE pdf IUSE pdflib IUSE cpdflib
12 Generating package list ... done
13 Scanning packages for ['IUSE', 'IUSE', 'IUSE'] ... done

41 plus I'm working on another ebuild with optional pdf functionality.
43 One case that doesn't completely fit into this category is
44 x11-misc/openclipart as the existing local "pdf" flag just determines
45 if some pdf files should be installed. Not sure how exactly to deal
46 with this situation, but in doubt the new global flag could IMO be
47 abused (less flags == better).
49 So unless there are any objections to this I'll make the change this
50 weekend.

58 Light.' And there was still nothing, but you could see a bit better.
