Description burzmali 2005-09-07 23:42:33 UTC
Here is in ebuild I made for tclkit.  I have not made many, but I tested this
one and it seems to work for me.  Here is a webpage describing tclkit:

basically it allows you to run starkits, which are single file, all in one tcl

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to emerge tclkit

Actual Results:  
there is no tclkit ebuild

Expected Results:  
tclkit should have installed, along with SDX (possibly depending on a new USE
flag to determine this?). SDX allows you to edit starkits (website: )  However, SDX is itself a starkit, and is thus
run as 'tclkit sdx.kit <sdx command> <starkit-to-edit>'. so where to install
sdx?  Should we create a new /usr/local/lib/starkists directory to keep them? 
that would be a long path to type...  This is why I have not included an ebuild
for sdx, I don't know where it goes!

OK, sorry but with nomirror *and* lack of version in tarball name, this is
CANTFIX, because this breaks digests, so we would have to mirror it manually and
we are not allowed to do so with nomirror. 

Even if the restrict was put into the ebuild by mistake, manual mirroring is
something we try to avoid as much as possible. Contact upstream and ask them to
ship tarballs that include a version number.

Also, license is missing.

If this is a binary-only package, then it belongs to /opt, not /usr/bin.

Closing CANTFIX unless the above issues can be solved.
