Description Ezra Gorman 2003-11-13 00:21:29 UTC
The source tarball is only accessible through a webform, seemant and avenj said
that I should just set the SRC_URI to mirrors:// and that the tarball could be
added to the gentoo mirrors.

Reproducible: Always

initial config file to put in the files dir
Comment 3 Lisa Seelye (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-03-11 17:00:35 UTC
How's the state of this given the new webapp-config?
Comment 4 Minati jean michel 2004-06-18 05:19:30 UTC
I tested it , it seems to works fine. :)
some notes :

the ebuild name should be mod_backhand-1.2.2.ebuild.
the config( in files dir )  file should be named mod_backhand.conf .
the correct url is, don't works for me.
about the ebuild,
the src_unpack seems useless to me.
keyword should be ~x86.
don t forgot to put : # $Header: $  as 3rd line of the ebuild.
you may use 'die' to check for important actions.

Comment 5 Chuck Short (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-06-19 17:53:14 UTC
This one should be using the webapp-config.

This patch correct some things with path of icons and cgi placement.

Comment 7 Minati jean michel 2004-09-28 05:42:58 UTC
I have a version working with webapp-config.
I'll post it later with support for apache1.eclass.
Comment 8 Michael Tindal (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-11-19 00:33:13 UTC
This is fixed in the Apache Herd's overlay, and will be in the main Portage tree sometime next month (we hope).
Comment 9 Michael Stewart (vericgar) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-11-21 13:30:35 UTC
mod_backhand broken in the overlay and needs to be fixed before it will make it to the main portage tree. SRC_URI is incorrect.
Comment 10 Michael Stewart (vericgar) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-01-09 00:49:20 UTC
The ebuild in apache herd's SVN is currently broken and needs to be fixed before it will be merged into the portage CVS tree.

- incorrect SRC_URI
- not sure it needs webapp eclass or a virtual host (the configuration document on doesn't list anything like that)
- doesn't use the functions profiled in the apache-modules eclass for compiling, etc - paths are wrong in the functions it defines
- should be in www-apache instead of net-www (it's a new package, so should go in www-apache so we don't have to move it later)
- doesn't have a metadata.xml
Comment 11 Benedikt Böhm (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-01-22 11:23:02 UTC
1.2.2 is now in portage cvs, please test

Upgrade Instructions:

After we have refreshed the packages on 8th Jan, to upgrade you will need to
do the following.

If you do not want to install masked/unstable packages on your machine(s),
these ebuilds will be unmasked and marked stable as soon as we have
determined that everything is working properly.

- unmask all needed packages (using /etc/portage/package.unmask and
- emerge -uav world

With this update, we are bringing some changes to the Apache configuration:

- /etc/apache{,2}/conf is moving to be /etc/apache{,2}
- new httpd.conf replaces commonapache{,2}.conf and apache{,2}.conf files
- /etc/apache{,2}/conf/vhosts is moving to be /etc/apache{,2}/vhosts.d

After installing this update, you will need to manually migrate any changes
you've made to your existing configuration files into the new configuration
