Like I said previously, this is not the correct place to discuss the semantics of the ebuild. Talk to the xorg maintainer. <antarus> !meta xorg-x11 <jeeves> antarus: Package: x11-base/xorg-x11 Herd: x11 Maintainer: x11 Description: X11 implementation by X.Org Foundation <antarus> !herd x11 <jeeves> antarus: (x11) azarah, battousai, eradicator, hhg, lu_zero, seemant, sekretarz, spyderous You probably want to get a hold of spyderous, or seemant as I see he commented earlier on this issue on-list. Regardless, this list is not the correct place to have this discussion. -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.1 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Thunderbird - iQIVAwUBQyecAmzglR5RwbyYAQIDOA/8Doa0uepGBk5zv6lxf2IfwLwxy++8XKAZ N3JxPhVogiXD3cYSC7tnURc21fr7H16BdJ/ftuclfgLVjlJFbk1ZWpUIxtquMTRC MBA9R7C79uk4er9XZOHZ72AhrZENsPozBwOfgdIFE+EDMUBtUS/5OQ75zdf/sFSg wIB333dArZ+7x72UTpLr9WjQ++xMlXTKgjyI/sX+cTDVvehCrGPNE3EbEiQrM1dd QpvBtWI9xjHnbPKi6Jx19dQb/SFCJkpYCMS2j2i4gf/Hu8HzQJm/O7isfjg97zO8 IaTOl+vaZHYIhcrm6XXftx3MzB2fkvs4WZ2f/C3hdDjMKcyzCOK2kNdPNoo5nBpx nicLJ5mnzz/rEY6nMGvoA+WMzFuFWvLx3MZxXfYeswCWEnbvpxJR/5Vs/E0lKfVa +Ra7bWi4s3krywu+Jttd/PCmRXP3cZv8KgveoigtU4WOz3fvTXHZAIpxSaa3Gig3 npApj9idza64q3QUsLzEGaNhiFm9w6grSWvNmDg05ZUVXhtHOMkc+g4Ba/4NKf95 A3Cak24rjYv7nqHBE3CW3B16Vqp19faDJYAcnqrjK48SBnLy9V6N/kq410zYW5dw fknOoxXxYOXWVQPnlw7P/8XsYXummsjs2WSxVAKqFGNAG//71ZHXa8n9z2l2IoZk 8FTWPe/CoBU= =RfaP -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- -- gentoo-security@g.o mailing list
