Subject: [gentoo-dev] About writing ebuild files
Date: Sun, 23 Jun 2002 17:27:49
1 Hi!
3 Of course I read the documentations and searched a little bit in the list
4 archive, but there are some questions left about writing ebuild files:
6 Do I have to put my name and mailaddress into the maintainer entry in the
7 comments or is this an entry for the gentoo people?
9 May I update an ebuild file originally written by a different person? What's
10 then about the maintainer entry?
12 I've written a port for cyrus-imapd-2.0.16. Unfortunately this package needs a
13 user called "cyrus", which doesn't exist in the default profile. What to do
14 in this situation?
16 How should the delivered /etc/services looks like, if I have to create some
17 new entries in it? Should it only contain the new entries or perhaps some
18 standard entries plus the new ones?
20 TIA,
21 Markus
