Description Mickey 2008-03-03 11:02:05 UTC
I'm trying to get one of the knowledgable people to fix the ebuild. The program also needs a maintainer.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

convertall-0.4.1 ebuild

Needs fixing
Comment 2 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-03-03 11:08:47 UTC
- the DESCRIPTION is horribly loooong
- no reason for RESTRICT=nomirror (plus, the no* form is deprecated)
- LICENSE is not valid
- KEYWORDS should never be stable for initial ebuilds
- src_unpack is default and redundant
- inherit eutils is redundant
- this needs to use one of the python eclasses to install
- the einfo in src_install is completely redundant as well

Oh, and ${D}\usr - > this isn't Windows, the other way round for the slash :)
Comment 4 Mickey 2008-03-03 11:26:01 UTC
Did I say that I would like some feedback on fixing the ebuild? I really hope you certainly did not think i'm releasing this as a finished ebuild. But thanks for the pointers.
Comment 5 Mickey 2008-03-03 11:28:44 UTC
It needs someone to fix the ebuild do you think you could upload a revision? What has it been replaced with when their are no official gentoo mirrors?

I was basing it on my  own system and did not change it back to mask.

Again, if you can fix it chip in.

I'm sorry, I have bailed out it did not work out.
