Description Claes Wikstrom 2003-06-05 16:47:04 UTC
New ebuild for the yaws web server. Yaws is a fast small dynamic contemt HTTP
1.1 webserver written in Erlang.  I suggest the net-www group.

Reproducible: Always

im sorry i just dont have time to process this.  somebody else might like the opportunity so i return it to wranglers.
Comment 3 Claes Wikstrom 2003-08-28 14:01:22 UTC
Yaws has had yet another release by now, this time called 1.30. The proposed ebuild will work for 1.30 as well (assuming it is renamed ofcource)
Comment 4 Stuart Herbert (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-10-04 06:23:40 UTC
Definitely one for the web-apps herd to look at.

Comment 5 Emil Sköldberg 2003-10-15 04:44:59 UTC
The ebuild for yaws 1.22 works well with the newest release 
1.31 as well, after renaming.
Comment 6 Emil Sköldberg 2003-12-19 06:30:33 UTC
Yaws version 1.40 has been released. Since yaws now handles php files, and there is a php-cgi in portage (see bug 18640) I have modified the ebuild to include a minuscule patch to take advantage of this.

Yaws expects the php binary that handles cgi to be named 'php' but the php_cgi
ebuild creates the binary 'php-cgi'
Comment 9 Emil Sköldberg 2004-02-18 03:03:53 UTC
A new version of yaws, 1.41, has come out. Since yaws now supports configuration of the php executable, the original ebuild for 1.22 works fine after renaming.

Comment 10 Emil Sköldberg 2004-03-29 05:26:19 UTC
Yet another version of yaws, 1.44, is available. As always the ebuild works nicely after renaming.

Really, couldn't yaws go into portage soon? It is close to 10 months since the initial submission of the ebuild.

Sorry - we can't accept your ebuild at the moment.

We can only accept ebuilds that the Gentoo developers can actively
support and maintain.  Unfortunately, we currently don't have a Gentoo
developer who is willing to take on this ebuild.

If you really want to see your ebuild become part of Gentoo, then the
best way is to become a Gentoo volunteer yourself.  You can volunteer
by sending an email to, quoting this bug's
ID number as a reference.

Best regards,
