Subject: [gentoo-dev] cvs-ebuilds
Date: Wed, 01 Jun 2005 19:13:36
1 A few day ago i thought about ebuilds without a version number.
2 The thing is to fetch all files via cvs and then do the things you do
3 with a normal ebuild.
5 After fetching the files all the content will be packed into a bz2
6 archive and saved in /usr/portage/distfiles/
7 i.e. if i emerge again the stored bz2archive will be extracted and
8 synced with cvs again.
9 So i can always can get the newest version without waiting for an ebuild.
11 Of course those packages are marked ~* anytime and nobody can promise,
12 the compiling won't fail.
14 Another feature could be to save the bz2 archive with the date of
15 fetching in its name.
16 Then i could use an old archive if there is i great bug in the newest files.
18 I want to read some opinions about this, it's just an idea.
