Description Thilo Bangert (RETIRED) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-04-30 08:45:14 UTC
AFAICT manifest generation is always package global, so there appears to be no difference between
$ ebuild bla-2342-r3.ebuild manifest
$ ebuild bla-2342-r4.ebuild manifest

instead of having to type
$ ebuild bla-2342-r3.ebuild manifest

I'd like to be able to regenerate the manifest for a package by simply typing
$ ebuild manifest 

I use Portage

kind regards

How is it supposed to know which package to operate on? Are you so lazy that you can't tab complete the ebuild name? :P

The current directory?
Comment 3 Thilo Bangert (RETIRED) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-04-30 21:28:49 UTC
agaffney: i should have added something like
$ ebuild manifest 
expands to 
$ebuild . manifest

which is exactly what betelgeuse is suggesting and.
i am not sure, that this is actually possible...

and yes - i am THAT lazy... ;)

Perhaps it would be more appropriate to make this a new target for repoman.  We already have a "fix" target which will do the manifest, but it also does other qa stuff.  We can add a "manifest" target that just does the manifest.
