net-mail/notmuch-0.11.1-r2.ebuild with nmbug and notmuch-delivery IUSEs
notmuch-deliver IUSE makes this ebuild to pull mail-filter/notmuch-deliver dependency
A couple of issues:
1) tar xzf is used in notmuch-deliver directly instead of unpack
2) documentation files are placed twice under /usr/share/doc/notmuch-deliver and /usr/share/doc/notmuch-deliver-0.11.1
Thanks! I will just tar notmuch-deliver and host on my own on d.g.o and version it with date just like snapshots. It will solve these issues.
I've cleaned CC list. You don't need to be CC-ed if you're a bug reporter, afaik.
Thanks for your explanation.
Although I think that necessarity of repacking notmuch-deliver on each new version release is not better than having those two features unresolved.
Plus, this will lead to duplicating sources to download as notmuch-deliver source stays in notmuch tarball. Either notmuch should be repacked too.
Anyway, I think there should be more convenient solution, though I don't know ebulds system well.
notmuch-deliver hasn't been modified in almost 3 months. I'll repack notmuch-deliver only if it will change, which will not happen often, I think. nmbug is maintained by one of main notmuch developer and used probably by all contributors, therefore I can be sure that is always up to date. notmuch-deliver doesn't seem to have so much care. Therefore I'd like to have notmuch-deliver as a separate package, if at all. I'll contact author about status of this project first. Btw, are you using notmuch-deliver intensively? Newest notmuch version has support for hooks and with afew it might take out a bit of fame from notmuch-deliver.
Well, I just started to use it for delivering locally generated mail to my maildir directly and tagging it properly at once.
And I was going to switch getmail rcfiles to use it instead of storing mails to maildir and calling 'notmuch new'.
notmuch-deliver seems to be more clear way to do these than anything else.
Also, I didn't tried afew yet. As I got it, afew is more a tool for preparing messages to be used by mail client than a delivery or filter tool.
I liked pop3/mda/maildir chain and I'm trying to keep with it in notmuch circumstances.
Well, afew is rather a filter tool than not.
But not a delivery tool.
If I gonna use filtering to mark locally generated mail, I'll have to mark them with Subject or From or smth else BEFORE storing in maildir. I think that tagging is a thing invented for replacing this workaround as well as just sorting emails already stored. Otherwise maildrop could be a good solution.

No direct 'tar xzf' usage any more.
Current developer of notmuch-deliver isn't responsive. Unless anyone will take over the project, there's no sense to put it into portage tree.
Please reopen when anything will move on. I'll be happy to maintain ebuild if project is resurrected.
