Description smkbot 2017-02-07 05:16:32 UTC

Synapse home page:

Synapse is packaged for a number of systems, but not Gentoo. It would be great to have an ebuild for this.

Created attachment 528328 [details]

I have tried some time ago to create an ebuild, but the dependencies are too much, so I don't end it.

This ebuild is therefore not at all functional or complete, but maybe a base for someone.

I started work on expanding the ebuild for version 0.21.0, for a more recent version [1]. I've no experience creating ebuilds. However, I believe I have identified a number of python packages that also need to be included before we can build the latest version.

# TODO: Needs: >=dev-python/canonicaljson-1.1.3
# TODO: Needs: >=dev-python/frozendict-1
# TODO: Needs: >=dev-python/pymacaroons-0.13.0
# TODO: Needs: >=dev-python/signedjson-1.0.0
# TODO: Needs: >=dev-python/unpaddedbase64-1.1.0

Also, synapse needs the use of a python package that's looking for a maintainer: 

# TODO: Looking for a Maintainer: >=dev-python/phonenumbers-8.2.0

Please review the ebuild on my gist [1].
