Updated ebuild, has changes from #588236, needs to have git removed

OpenClonk 8 got released, a bump would be nice.

Source tarball (in case the one in the download section isn't up to date yet):

Thank you for your contribution. I had a short look on the ebuild. 
Here a few ideas:

* Please test the ebuild with repoman full -x
* eutils is not needed here since EAPI=6
* KEYWORDS need ~ after a version bump run ekeyword ~all YOUREBUILD
* please fix the header. (see /usr/portage/skel.ebuild and
"# Copyright 1999-2018 Gentoo Foundation"

* fdo-mime is obsolete, please use xdg-utils
* It would be better to attach the single files instead of a compressed file.

fixed ebuild

I made the warnings go away and did what you said, but I'm still not sure that makes this a good ebuild.
Comment 4 Julius 2018-02-09 12:59:57 UTC
Hm, two questions:

1. Is there a nice way to check whether the listed dependencies are really sufficient/necessary? At least gtk3 seems to be unnecessary at this point (It's only used to build the mape tool, which the ebuild doesn't install.)

2. There is extra music available at, but the license is… odd at best.
"The game Open Clonk ( ) may use and distribute the soundtrack, as long as credit is given. This explicitly includes packaged distributions of the game. In-game videos of Open Clonk and game modifications and extensions based on the Open Clonk file-types (.ocd, .ocs and .ocf) don't require credits." Any way to have this as an extra download, or something?

Small change: It's 8.1 now…

Please use tarball from

Instead of using your local git tree

I made an overlay for this a while ago…
Not sure what to do with this issue now.
