People at the forum directed me here for new ebuild requests. I was wondering whether it would be possible to include an ebuild for derby (http://incubator.apache.org/derby) in gentoo.
Derby is an embedded low-footprint java database engine, the open-sourced IBM Cloudscape database.
Steps to Reproduce:
Created attachment 42160 [details]
derby-bin ebuild based on bsh-2.0_beta1-r1.ebuild
Here's an ebuild I have thrown together in a hurry. It's binary only, but at
least it's a start :)
proposed location: dev-java/derby
We won't be adding any more bin packages when the source is available
We won't be adding more -bin packages if we can help it.
Please reopen this bug with a from-source ebuild. You can join #gentoo-java on irc.freenode.net to get help on writing it. Also, consult http://gentoo-wiki.com/Java
I'm closing this as REMIND, so that it will show up on the orphaned ebuilds list
in our wiki, and other external parties may help out.
