Description Frantz Dhin 2003-05-26 11:31:54 UTC
It is in Portage as rosegarden-4.0.9.ebuild, but actually the name of the
application is rosegarden-4, and the version is 0.9.
From the website at :

What is Rosegarden-4?

editor, and general-purpose music composition and editing application for Unix
and Linux. It is currently approaching 1.0 feature completion and beta testing
following two and a half years of sustained active development.

Portage doesn't support dashes '-' in the name of a package. It could be renamed to:


but not:


Not sure that i consider it a bug. After all, the major version of this release is 4...

thats similar to how we handle imagemagick in portage, they have a -<patchlevel>
attatched to their version number, so we change for example 5.5.7-4 to in portage.
imo this is not a bug, it's just how portage works so i vote for closing WONTFIX
