Description Christian Strahl 2013-04-05 13:39:38 UTC
It would be nice to have more use-flags for the application selection of gnome-extra-apps (like for shotwell and tracker).

I would like to have the following use-flags:
- evolution
- epiphany
- webcam (for cheese)
- games (for gnome-games and aisleriot)

Reproducible: Always

I believe this ebuild is not to be transformed into a USE flag fest, those are 
merely helpers for users unable to write their own sets of packages since they 
don't want the full list of gnome packages but somehow want the reassurance 
that they have almost everything except what they filtered out.

Ok, I understand your mind.

I would nevertheless pleased when USE flags for webcam and games could be added.


1) On a company computer I would not have games. One global USE flag would be an easy way to determine this.
2) If I have no webcam, I don't need cheese.
3) 'webcam' and 'games' are already existing USE flags
