Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-06-14 16:24:15 UTC
The patch in summary is touching both and, probably to avoid autotools rebuild.

This treatment is usually reserved for a few selected system packages that cannot have their autotool scripts rebuilt.

This _could_ cause maintainermode-driven rebuild (see ), which is something we should be avoiding as much as possible.

Please just patch and/or and rebuild autotools, unless you have very good reasons not to.

This is a non-issue and does NOT ever cause a maintainer mode trigger build files rebuild. We are not going to start imposing eautoreconf to everyone.
We did however fix gnome2-utils.eclass gnome2_omf_fix() (called by gnome2_src_unpack) to not sed after but in the proper order (triggers maintainer mode rebuild for all GNOME packages for which the sed changes anything when PORTAGE_TMPDIR is tmpfs with higher accuracy modtime than a second).
Next time actually please provide useful information, so that we wouldn't be looking at the wrong place all along (FILESDIR instead of eclass).
