Description Bearcat M. Şándor 2017-01-29 21:38:42 UTC
The files that gs-pypi provides are very outdated. For instance, Mopidy is at version 1.1.1, whereas the version on is at 2.1.0.  It appears that the repository at is not being updated and it's a year old.

In the bug filed at it's suggested to do the dbupdate by hand, but this brings down all of the package data and that essencially does what is strongly reccomended against on the gs-pypi man page.

Can we have the ebuild just by-pass the git repo that is no longer maintained and perform this local dbupdate but have it read the packages list that have been put into /etc/g-sorcery/g-sorcery.cfg.

Or is gs-pypi dead and we should just make regular ebuilds for the things that we want?
