Description Ilian Zarov 2002-02-02 06:08:53 UTC
CD CATalog is a CD Indexing program which comes very handy when you have a lot
of CDs and you need to find a particular file. Visit for more information. Please note that
SRC_URI variable contains a url hosted at f2s which will discontinue offering
free web hosting services as of 28 Feb and it will be a good idea to mirror
cdcat-0.2.tar.gz (6923 bytes) on ibiblio.

ebuild bugs:
  cd ${S} in src_install() is not needed
  ebuild was missing ${D} in install targets -- violated sandbox

source bugs:
  source's ignores the --man_prefix -- included workaround in ebuild
  wants to put the index files in /mnt/ext/cd (non-FHS), using /var/lib/cdcat

Great job on the DEPENDS.  Thanks for using correct tab settings.  Please try
using MAINTAINER="sandbox" in the future to help catch install bugs.  The big
pkg_postinst() message wasn't a bad idea, but the /mnt/ext/cd is really not
FHS-compliant at all.  I guess I'll put this in app-cdr; does that seem right?

The Gentoo Copyright line was not included.  I'm adding it.  If this is a
problem, let me know immediately so we can resolve it.

Thanks for submitting the ebuild; we appreciate it.  If you have any questions
or comments about my changes, just post them to this bug.  Thanks again,

  Thanks for the detailed explainations. As I rarely write ebuilds, just for
apps I often use, I need more practice. I've set MAINTAINER to include sandbox.
 Sorry for not keeping with the FHS, I don't actually use /mnt/ext/cd but
decided  not to change it as it is the default. I'll have a more in-depth look
into the FHS.
 I think app-cdr isn't suitable for cdcat as it is not related to CD writing
stuff. App-misc might be a good place to put it in.

You are willing to give the copyright to Gentoo, correct?

I will move the ebuild to app-misc.

Thanks again,
Comment 5 Ilian Zarov 2002-02-05 08:59:42 UTC
 Yes, I give full copyright permissions to Gentoo.
 Thanks for rewriting most of the code to conform to the project guidelines.

moved to app-misc
