Description Sergey Ilinykh 2012-11-21 05:14:33 UTC
hi gentoo devs

can you add communi IRC app/lib into portage?
its used by spectrum xmpp transport (Bug 291437)

I have ebuilds for both, but communi shoud be added first

Reproducible: Always

The Qt team is not interested in maintaining this. We suggest proxy-maintenance or sunrise overlay.
Comment 2 Nathan Phillip Brink (binki) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-03-06 06:32:37 UTC
I might be willing to proxy-maintain that ebuild for you, Rion. Contact me directly to work with me if you are interested.

One comment on the ebuild is that the mv "${WORKDIR}"/${P}-* hack can be pulled from the vcs-snapshot.eclass instead of written out in the ebuild itself.

A second comment is that communi seems to have an eqmake4() option, something like no_tests=1, to disable tests… the sed looks like a hack.

A third is that src/ seems to specify that {R,}DEPEND="dev-qt/qtcore" is necessary. inherit()ing qt4-r2.eclass will not automatically do that for you. AFAICT, QtNetwork is always included with qtcore.

If you’re still interested in getting this into Gentoo, start with these fixes. Thanks :-).
Comment 3 Nathan Phillip Brink (binki) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-04-16 05:45:25 UTC points to latest ebuilds from rion.
