Description Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2017-07-24 14:55:35 UTC
Debian switched to a newer git snapshot long time ago to use udisks2 support (it landed upstream one month after 1.3.1 release, a bit more than one year ago). Hence, it would be nice to get a version bump to a snapshot to solve that (and probably bug 562610 without needing to rely on a live ebuild)

Comment 1 Fat-Zer 2017-07-31 08:23:52 UTC
Could you give me some hints, how to do it properly?
E.g. what revision should I choose for the snapshot?
Is it ok to gather revision tarball from github or should I package it myself? If I should package, where can I place it?

#562610 — is a different issue... qt5 port is still maintained on a separate branch, so it would require a separate tarball.. But may be I'll finally get my hands onto it.
Comment 2 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2017-07-31 10:40:09 UTC
Well, I would at first try to rely on vcs-snapshot.eclass as that would help us from needing to find a place for a generated tarball.

For example, for the last commit, the download link would be

Then, you can try to mimic latest grive ebuild for example, and do something like:
inherit vcs-snapshot
SRC_URI="${COMMIT}.tar.gz -> ${P}.tar.gz"
