Description Ryan Shaw 2002-05-16 08:40:29 UTC
The developer docs say:

	src_unpack: Use this function to unpack your sources and apply 
	patches, and run autoconf/automake/etc. if necessary. By default, 
	unpacks the packages in ${A} and applies ${PF}-gentoo.diff. The 
	default starting directory is ${WORKDIR}.

However, src_unpack just seems to unpack sources: it doesn't
apply the *-gentoo.diff patch automatically. Are the docs old
or is this something intended that hasn't been implemented

According to /usr/lib/portage/bin/, it is true that src_unpack() does
not do any auto-patching.
Comment 2 Daniel Robbins (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-06-27 23:37:51 UTC
Sunflare: can you fix this in our docs?  It should not say that Portage
Comment 3 Phil Bordelon (sunflare) 2002-07-01 18:31:17 UTC
Fix submitted to peitolm and meekrob.  I'll close this bug as soon as it gets
through to the pages.
Comment 4 Phil Bordelon (sunflare) 2002-07-08 09:26:08 UTC
Assigning to me for the time being.
Comment 5 Phil Bordelon (sunflare) 2002-07-10 09:55:04 UTC
The webpage has been updated.  Thanks for the heads-up, and thanks to peitolm
for doing the update!

Closing bug as FIXED.
