Description Arfrever Frehtes Taifersar Arahesis (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-04-13 20:58:48 UTC
- If this package can be used as a library and installs Python modules
  (*.so or *.py) into site-packages directories, then consider supporting
  installation for multiple Python versions.
  Please read section "Types of packages" in documentation [1] to decide
  if this package can support installation for multiple Python versions.

- Ensure that the ebuilds do not use deprecated functions or variables.

- Please check if Python 3 is supported by this package. You can temporarily
  set Python 3 as main active version of Python to properly test if this
  package supports Python 3.

- If this package does not support Python 3:
  - Specify dependency on Python 2.
    You can use PYTHON_DEPEND helper variable, which should be set before
    inheriting of python eclass.
    Please read section "Specification of dependency on Python" in
    documentation [1].

  - If this package cannot support installation for multiple versions of
    Python, then set active version of Python using

  - Ensure that shebangs in installed scripts specify correct version of
    Python. If shebangs are too generic (e.g. '#!/usr/bin/python'), then you
    can use python_convert_shebangs() to convert shebangs.
    (Wrapper scripts generated by python_generate_wrapper_scripts() do not
    require any changes.)
    Please read section "Shebangs in installed scripts" in documentation [1].

  - To ensure that changes applied to the ebuilds are sufficient, please
    temporarily set Python 3 as main active version of Python and test if
    this package can be properly installed and if it works at run time.

Please see documentation [1] for more details.

I've retired as a gentoo dev. Reassigning to herd.

net-im/pyicq-t- requires PYTHON_DEPEND=2, otherwise errors occur:

(In reply to comment #3)

pkg_setup() {
	python_set_active_version 2

${FILESDIR}/pyicq-t-0.8-initd should be fixed to not explicitly call /usr/bin/python.

"${ED}$(python_get_sitedir)/pyicq-t" should be executable.

Shebangs in scripts should be fixed.

(In reply to comment #5)

It's better to directly change the file in ${FILESDIR}.

python_convert_shebangs ${PYTHON_ABI} "${ED}$(python_get_sitedir)/${PN}/"

idella4: your patch contained some problems, i.e. inspath-dosed was removed and thus init-script didn't work any more. I've hopefully fixed everything and bumped pyicq-t.
