Description Jesse Adelman 2003-05-04 19:26:50 UTC
Please make an e-build for this great Open Source surveying module for Apache
with mod_perl. 3.0.15 is the latest stable. Thanks!
Comment 1 Donny Davies (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-06-11 20:04:03 UTC
I'm afraid I don't have time to create this package for you, sorry :(

Comment 2 Michael Cummings (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-08-25 04:32:35 UTC
Give me a working ebuild and I will be happy to look at it. Otherwise I have to echo Donny's comments - too little time to go writing an ebuild right now.
Comment 3 Stuart Herbert (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-10-04 05:05:19 UTC

My apologies, but we simply don't have the free time right now to create
ebuilds on request.

Have you tried writing an ebuild for this package?  On our website, we have
a good beginner's guide to writing ebuilds.  You can find our documentation

Come back with an ebuild, and we'll be happy to look at it again for you.

Best regards,

Ebuild attached. It should probably also depend on mod_perl

Jesse et al,

First of all, thanks for your comments. 
The ebuild now uses webapp.eclass to install the webroot into ${MY_HOSTROOTDIR}. mod_survey itself now lives in /usr/lib. 

Please test and let me know if there are any problems. For now, I'll hold off on committing it until the reorganization of net-www.
Comment 11 Joel Palmius 2004-07-30 09:26:42 UTC
As an additional feature request, perhaps the data subdir should end up somewhere in the /var hierarchy rather than in the /usr/lib hierarchy? If cumbersome to do through the ebuild and helper scripts, I could consider adding the option in mod_survey proper, that is to say in the installer script. Comments?

data/ is now in /var/lib/mod_survey
cleaned up DEPEND and RDEPEND

Ebuild for mod_survey

Changed description. Added ~amd64 and ~sparc (I'm using it on my opteron, and I
can't see why it wouldn't work on any platform supporting mod_perl)

Copied and modified ChangeLog skel.

Tried my luck on copying and modifying metadata skel. Some of the contents are
pure guesses from my side.
Comment 21 Joel Palmius 2004-08-15 03:27:56 UTC
A tgz with ebuild and relevant files, as placed under app-sci/mod_survey, is available from <a href=""></a>.
Comment 22 Renat Lumpau (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-08-15 08:39:14 UTC

Thanks for modifying the description.

Changelog,manifest,digest, and metadata will be generated at commit time, so no need to post them here. As regards arch keywords---as per our policy, they can be added only by our arch maintainers. Once the ebuild is in portage, you can file a separate bug and ask for a new arch to be added to the ebuild.

Version bump, 3.2.0 stable was released yesterday. Also changed SRC_URI.
Comment 24 Renat Lumpau (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-08-18 14:42:01 UTC
In CVS. Joel, if you want it to be ~amd64 and ~sparc, please file separate bugs.
