Description Stacey Keast 2002-05-20 19:10:04 UTC
hotkeys is a program that lets you take advantage of all those extra keys on
newer keyboards, launching programs ect.  It integrates with xosd (See Bug #
2877) to supply on screen display information with keypresses if USE=xosd is
suggested in x11-misc/hotkeys

Hi Stacey

Thanks for submitting an ebuild!
I see you made xosd optional dependency. However I do not see xosd USE flag
defined at this point.
I can raise the question about introducing new use flag (basically it has to be
listed in /usr/portage/profiles/use.desc), however I would like to see some
supportive arguments (especially since xosd seems to be a small library):

Are there any drawbacks of default inclusion of xosd into hotkeys (like
introducing conflicts in certain cases..)? Do you know any other app that has
xosd as an *optional* dependency? I would like to see some 

I committed an ebuild. Right now I removed xosd?, so that xosd dependency is
"absolute". Please reopen the bug if you think there are strong arguments for
introduction of new usevar.
