Ebuild has been added to Sunrise and will be available for public checkout soon:
Comment 3 whitehawk 2009-01-02 21:46:45 UTC
It might need an OpenAL dependency. I don't know if it needs anything else yet.
Anyway it's good to see it in gentoo!
Comment 4 Erik Hahn 2009-01-02 22:40:29 UTC
It brings it's own copy of libopenal and a couple of other libs with it.
Comment 5 Jeremy Murphy 2009-01-27 07:22:46 UTC
Does that mean it includes its own Crystal Space 3D library?  This latest PlaneShift requires the 1.4 svn version of crystalspace, which is not in gentoo or sunrise portage.  Any chance of a source ebuild any time soon?  Am willing to help.  :)

loux has made very nice source ebuilds for gentoo. you can find them in the planeshift forums:
Comment 7 Xavier Vachon 2010-06-10 15:45:13 UTC
Reporting that Planeshift is now version 0.5.3. Is there new activity planned on this ebuild?
Comment 8 Xavier Vachon 2010-06-10 15:46:21 UTC
Also, should there be an ebuild for the source version too?
Comment 9 jannis 2010-06-11 08:53:08 UTC
You're right, the ebuild here is way too old. As I noticed earlier, loux made nice source-ebuilds which can still be found here:

By now, he made an independent overlay that can be used to install planeshift and all its deps
Comment 10 Michal Plichta 2015-01-20 12:25:36 UTC
maybe somebody can add/update ebuild following guide:

Hello, everyone.

It seems that at least one ebuild related to this bug exists in the Sunrise overlay at the moment. However, I have to regretfully announce that after a long inactivity period the Sunrise project has been discontinued and the related overlay will be eventually removed. For this reason, I'd like to ask you to reevaluate the ebuilds and consider moving them. If you'd like to maintain a package from Sunrise in Gentoo, please take a look at our Proxy Maintainers [1] project.

Please make sure to take ebuilds from the unreviewed developer Sunrise repository [2] rather than the -reviewed one, since the latter has not been updated for over a year. While at it, please note that:

1. Adding a package to Gentoo requires declaring yourself as an active maintainer for it. All bugs regarding the package will be assigned to you, and you will be expected to maintain it.

2. Some packages may not be suitable for addition anymore. While there's no strong rules that would prevent you from adding a package, it may be a bad idea to add old-unmaintained packages that will shortly result in a large number of bugs reported with no solution. If that is the case, please close the bug as RESOLVED/OBSOLETE to make it easier to find packages worth adding.

3. Some of the bugs were already closed as WONTFIX/OBSOLETE/... while the relevant ebuild was kept in Sunrise. If you disagree with the original decision, you still can add the ebuild via proxy-maint.

4. Pleaes note that many of the Sunrise ebuilds are old and may be buggy. If you decide to move them, please make sure to update/clean them up. The proxy-maint team will also review your ebuilds, therefore making sure they land in Gentoo in good quality.

Once again, thank you for your contribution. We hope that you will still want to contribute to Gentoo, through proxy-maint or otherwise.
