Latest upstream release:  [14-Oct-2015]: lirc-0.9.3a

Ebuild for lirc-0.9.2a-r1 is here:
supports systemd and compiles against libftdi-1.* on my system (see my bug #566852) but drops support selecting which drivers to build via LIRC_DEVICES.

Is anyone willing to proxy maintain this package?
Comment 6 Dmitry Isaenko 2016-03-20 12:46:18 UTC
Hey guys. I'm newbie in ebuild development, but I created ebuild for lirc-0.9.3a that works at gentoo-sources kernel 4.1.15. (Because ebuilds for lirc I found at known overlays are piece of crap.)
I'm not sure if it's allowed to publish external links in here, but you may find all required files in here . I hope it will help someone.
Comment 7 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2016-04-03 08:15:06 UTC
Do you want to proxy maintain this? :/
Comment 8 Richard Freeman gentoo-dev 2016-04-13 14:09:55 UTC
Created attachment 430326 [details]
updated lirc ebuild

I have tweaked this ebuild.  I still need to test it.  I don't mind proxy maintaining this for you, or possibly co-maintaining it.  I'll be hosting this on my rich0 overlay (in layman) as well until I'm sure all the kinks are worked out.

Note that I renamed the init.d script to include the version stamp.
Comment 9 Craig Andrews gentoo-dev 2016-06-27 21:41:37 UTC
I've submitted a pull request, based on the work of Richard Freeman and loper, that bumps lirc to 0.9.4 (the current latest version).
Comment 10 Craig Andrews gentoo-dev 2016-07-01 21:45:44 UTC
Resolved (I just can't mark it as such):
Comment 11 Michael Orlitzky gentoo-dev 2016-07-31 15:31:11 UTC
Thanks Craig!
