OpenClonk 8 got released, a bump would be nice.

Source tarball (in case the one in the download section isn't up to date yet):
Comment 1 Jonas Stein gentoo-dev 2018-02-06 22:10:15 UTC
Thank you for your contribution. I had a short look on the ebuild. 
Here a few ideas:

* Please test the ebuild with repoman full -x
* eutils is not needed here since EAPI=6
* KEYWORDS need ~ after a version bump run ekeyword ~all YOUREBUILD
* please fix the header. (see /usr/portage/skel.ebuild and
"# Copyright 1999-2018 Gentoo Foundation"

* fdo-mime is obsolete, please use xdg-utils
* It would be better to attach the single files instead of a compressed file.

fixed ebuild

I made the warnings go away and did what you said, but I'm still not sure that makes this a good ebuild.
Comment 4 Julius 2018-02-09 12:59:57 UTC
Hm, two questions:

1. Is there a nice way to check whether the listed dependencies are really sufficient/necessary? At least gtk3 seems to be unnecessary at this point (It's only used to build the mape tool, which the ebuild doesn't install.)

2. There is extra music available at, but the license is… odd at best.
"The game Open Clonk ( ) may use and distribute the soundtrack, as long as credit is given. This explicitly includes packaged distributions of the game. In-game videos of Open Clonk and game modifications and extensions based on the Open Clonk file-types (.ocd, .ocs and .ocf) don't require credits." Any way to have this as an extra download, or something?
Comment 5 Julius 2018-03-17 10:35:48 UTC
Small change: It's 8.1 now…
Comment 6 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2018-05-31 17:12:48 UTC
Please use tarball from

Instead of using your local git tree

Comment 7 Julius 2018-10-03 18:11:08 UTC
I made an overlay for this a while ago…
Not sure what to do with this issue now.
Comment 8 Julius 2020-07-30 14:36:30 UTC
Porting to python 3 seems to be non-trivial. I would suggest to remove the doc flag (and have done so on my overlay).

(The doc flag currently builds the documentation necessary for developing add-ons to the game. It is certainly not of high importance…)
