I have attached midgard-1.5.0.ebuild and recommend the net-www/midgard directory.
Midgard is a Content Management Framework for creating Content Management Systems (CMS) and applications using the LAMP components. This is my first ebuild and it needs plenty of nurturing and work, :-P

Sorry for the delay in replying. We've been very busy putting a new
framework in place for ebuilds for web-based applications. This has
now been added to Portage.
We need you to update your ebuild to use the new framework before we
can accept your ebuild.
Please emerge net-www/webapp-config (make sure you get version 1.2 or
later), and update your ebuild to work with this new tool. You can
use 'man 5 webapp.eclass', 'man 5 webapp-config' and 'man 8 webapp-config'
to learn more about how your ebuild needs to work.
You can find an example ebuild, for phpmyadmin, in
If you encounter any difficulties with the new framework (and we
apologise, but there are sure to be a few at first), please let us know
and we'll do our best to help you.
Doh - forgot to change the status of this bug.
Mario: It would be nice to know if you are working on this, I could do some testing if you'd like.
This ebuild is 100% defunct.
Midgard looks like a very interesting framework, but quite tricky to install. I'll see if I can figure it out...
I'd love to help out with this if needed. I've had Midgard ebuilds in my overlay for a few months (I know, I should have searched here first ;-) so I can help with that and/or testing. I've been using Midgard since on and off 2001, and more heavily since the start of the year, so I can help field support/bugs as well. :-)
Things have improved a lot in the 1.6 series, so maybe it would be a good idea to get 1.6rcx ebuilds into the tree? (1.5 + crappy install + webapp infra can get quite messy) I'll work on that tomorrorow (need a large dosage os sleep now ;-)
I'm curious to see what you have. I actuallly committed my Midgard ebuilds a little while ago, and they lasted all of 30 mins until Mr_Bones_ saw the MySQL running dep and got unhappy. So I'd like to see what you have come up with.
anyone using it anymore?
