The web-apps herd is currently working on delivering some important changes
to the way that web-based applications are installed and managed on Gentoo
Linux.  Until this work is complete, we're not commiting ebuilds for new
web-based packages.

I've marked this bug as 'LATER'.  As soon as we are able to, we will come
back to this bug and help you convert your ebuild to our new approach.

Many thanks for your patience,

Sorry for the delay in replying.  We've been very busy putting a new
framework in place for ebuilds for web-based applications.  This has
now been added to Portage.

We need you to update your ebuild to use the new framework before we
can accept your ebuild.

Please emerge net-www/webapp-config (make sure you get version 1.2 or
later), and update your ebuild to work with this new tool.  You can
use 'man 5 webapp.eclass', 'man 5 webapp-config' and 'man 8 webapp-config'
to learn more about how your ebuild needs to work.

You can find an example ebuild, for phpmyadmin, in

If you encounter any difficulties with the new framework (and we
apologise, but there are sure to be a few at first), please let us know
and we'll do our best to help you.

Best regards,

Not updated upstream since October 2003. Also, this ebuild would need to be
rewritten to use webapp eclass.
