Subject: [gentoo-dev] best way to do trivial ebuild updates
Date: Fri, 07 Feb 2003 21:44:31
1 What is the best/fastest/approved way to get packages that have had
2 version bumps into portage? For example, pan unstable was recently
3 updated to, and a simple copy of the .ebuild file to match the
4 new version number installed and has been working for me great since the
5 update yesterday.
7 Is it best to submit a bugzilla bug, a bugzilla patch (with straight
8 copy of the file), email the maintainer, or ask for CVS access so I can
9 update it myself? :)
11 I've seen this before and submitted ebuild to bugzilla, but normally the
12 bug is invalidated a bit later when another version comes out and the
13 developer updates to that.
15 Just wondering.
