Description Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2013-02-14 19:32:24 UTC
Not sure about the need on showing:
        elog "In order to browse the Gentoo Development Guide in"
        elog "offline mode, point your browser to the following url:"
        elog "/usr/share/doc/devmanual-9999/html/index.html"

always, probably it could be shown only first time the package is installed (using readme.gentoo.eclass).

        elog "The offline version of the devmanual does not include the"
        elog "documentation for the eclasses. If you need it, then emerge"
        elog "the following package:"
        elog "app-portage/eclass-manpages"

Could be shown only when that package is missing. 

I can commit the changes if you let me do :) (and also review your maintained packages if you want)

Reproducible: Always

I am not sure how to use this eclass yet. What I would do is to use $REPLACING_VERSIONS but I am willing to see an example of how this eclass could be used in this case.

Could you show me a patch? :)

looks good to me. Feel free to commit it (and you can fix my packages that suffer from the same problem if you want to). Thanks!

I am reviewing other packages, but phpvirtualbox looks to not be able to use eapi >= 4:
