13 Mainly, because at this point gentoolkit and gentoolkit-dev are now
14 almost completely separate code bases as well as being separate packages.
16 They share a common ancestry and that can be seen looking through the
17 commit log, but starting with gentoolkit-0.2.5, gentoolkit started
18 migrating to python as the only scripting language and utilizing the
19 Portage API with setuptools as the build system. The two remaining bash
20 scripts are being rewritten in python and when that is complete, they
21 will be completely separate code bases.
23 gentoolkit-dev has stayed as a collection of stand-alone scripts written
24 in multiple languages intended mainly for Gentoo developers.
26 Since they really do not share any code anymore, it did not make sense
27 to me keeping gentoolkit-dev as a branch and it should be in its own
28 repository.
