Description niels 2013-04-13 16:21:11 UTC
Current ebuilds of dev-scm/git do not support installation of git-remote-hg even though it is shipped with git tarball under 'contrib/remote-helpers'. The most current ebuild (dev-vcs/git- already has USE flags for cvs and subversion. Perhaps a USE=hg can be added that installs git-remote-hg to '/usr/libexec/git-core'.

Reproducible: Always

I obviously meant dev-vcs/git instead of dev-scm/git. Got a little confused there...

+*git- (09 Jul 2013)
+  09 Jul 2013; Lars Wendler <> +git-
+  Non-maintainer commit: Version bump (bug #467856). Converted ebuild to EAPI-5
+  and python-single-r1 eclass. Added gtk -> python REQUIRED_USE (bug #451374).
+  Hopefully fixed test failure with USE=-perl (bug #470592). Added installation
+  of git-remote-hg (bug #465808) and git-remote-bzr with USE=python.
