Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-06-14 17:19:39 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.

P.S.: sorry but secure-tuneling@g.o does not exist and I have no clue who to assign this myself.

  29 May 2008; Christian Heim <> metadata.xml:
  Removing Lars Weiler (Pylon) from metadata.xml (as per #215644).

@phreak: herds.xml lists no contacts for the secure-tunneling herd.
Comment 2 Jeroen Roovers (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-06-14 17:50:16 UTC
Hmm. metadata.xml revisions suggest that one by one all of the secure-tunneling people retired.
Comment 3 Mr. Bones. (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-01-21 18:17:50 UTC
Cleaned out the package directory of all except the latest ebuild.  The others can be restored if a maintainer appears.
