Description Arfrever Frehtes Taifersar Arahesis (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-05-28 21:36:01 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.

ebuild for tovid-0.34

An ebuild for tovid-0.34. Fixes bug 314345, bug 347551, and works around bug 380243. Substantial cleaup to ebuld. Bumped EAP to 3. Dripped wxwidgets, not used by the GUI anymore. Added dependency to Tix when "tk" flag is set, as GUI not requires it. While authoring a dvd, while tested discovered tovid would stall indefinitely if "transcode" wasn't compiled with the mjpeg flag, so made that a requirement as well. Doesn't work with Python 3 so forced it to 2.
