Description Christoph Junghans gentoo-dev 2012-08-31 21:35:45 UTC
Unpacker eclass has been in the tree since 2012-02-01 (see bug #399019).
This eclass makes it easy to get consistent behaviour across different package managers (see bug #384147 for inconsistency example). It also allows to add support for new formats in a day (see bug #432214).

Suggestion: In some future EAPI unpack should be replaced by unpacker from unpacker.eclass.
Comment 1 Ciaran McCreesh 2012-08-31 21:50:41 UTC
How would this work? Package mangler code can't require eclasses.

Bug #380391 is more realistic IMO, but people will never approve this.

Or just have a Gentoo policy to always inherit some kind of common eclass.

(In reply to comment #2)

or inherit it whenever you use .deb or a new format.  if you want to enforce the .deb part, you could make it into a repoman check.

In the current form, this can't work. Since there's no new replies from OP, I'm closing it as CANTFIX.
