Subject: [gentoo-portage-dev] recent changes in the way pkgsplit() and company work
Date: Wed, 07 Feb 2007 06:58:02
1 Sorry, but I didn't have an internet connection for January to notice but when I
2 upgraded to 2.1.2-r7 pkgsplit, catpkgsplit, catsplit no longer accepted ebuild
3 strings with any atoms. Porthole was crashing in several places.
5 I have changed portholes coding to work around it, but there are several more
6 bugs for me to fix before considering it for a new release (a few unfinished
7 features too). My main question is what approximate time frame is if any being
8 considered for stabilizing the 2.1.2 version. I will need to make sure I have a
9 release ready for porthole users.
11 Also, I had copied a little code from gentoolkit which also puked at the change
12 in strictness. I don't know if that has been changed already. It was in
13 split_package_name(). It was called from find_best_match() called from
14 get_system_pkgs().
