When attempting to emerge wordpress, I get an error about a missing patch: login-patch.diff

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. # emerge wordpress
Actual Results:  

>>> md5 src_uri ;-) wordpress-1.2.1.tar.gz
>>> Unpacking source...
>>> Unpacking wordpress-1.2.1.tar.gz to /var/tmp/portage/wordpress-1.2.1/work

 * Cannot find $EPATCH_SOURCE!  Value for $EPATCH_SOURCE is:
 *   /usr/portage/www-apps/wordpress/files/1.2.1/login-patch.diff

!!! ERROR: www-apps/wordpress-1.2.1 failed.
!!! Function epatch, Line 262, Exitcode 0
!!! Cannot find $EPATCH_SOURCE!

Expected Results:

Fixed in CVS.
Comment 2 Paul Campbell 2004-10-11 04:43:58 UTC
Confirmed: emerged successfully.

Comment 3 Jonathan Manning 2004-10-14 09:46:12 UTC
Are you sure this patch is appropriate? I get a redirection limit exceeded error when I visit wp-admin/, and reverting the effect of this patch fixes the error.

I suspect the patch should not have been copied over, but simply removed.
Comment 4 Stuart Herbert (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-10-15 04:16:55 UTC
The patch hasn't been copied over.  Without it, I get exactly the same error that you get.

Best regards,
