Subject: [gentoo-user] Call for opinions and/or use cases regarding games.eclass
Date: Fri, 01 Jul 2016 08:27:52
1 Most of us know about the games.eclass history. Let's put that aside;
2 I'm looking for user consensus on packages that use(d) games.eclass.
4 1. Do you take advantage of games.eclass features, including restricting
5 game access to a given group and installing games outside of /usr and/or
6 on different media?
8 2. If yes, how do you feel about the removal of the eclass? Did you rely
9 on its functionality? Does your use case require it?
11 3. If yes, _what is your use case_? Which features are important to your
12 use case wrt games and what can Gentoo do to improve that?
14 We cannot make concrete decisions without concrete evidence, so please
15 answer and speak for your use case. This will serve as a public record
16 of interest, and might even inspire a few people. :)
18 Thanks for your time,
20 ~zlg
