Comment 1 Olof Kindgren 2019-05-15 19:33:48 UTC
This now seems to be the only bug blocking but is the script even used anywhere? I can't find any reference to it in any of the ebuilds

This was added by vapier, so adding him to CC.

I suspect this script is used (somehow) when revbumping this package to build the archive that goes on gentoo mirrors:

@vapier is the script still needed? If so, can you update it to use in the correct location?
