log showing order of patch and autoconf

I'm trying to work on a user patch instead of (also by me) and I ran into a problem.

I was modifying the file and eautoconf/eautoreconf is being called before the user patch is applied. 

And there's this from the forum

If I can get the ebuild to properly handle adding a user patch to and autoconfig afterwards, then there's no need to modify the ebuild to add the atk-bridge stuff (from linked bug)

    x11-libs/gtk+: support touching user patches
    Use GNOME2_EAUTORECONF, which is more correct either way, as it
    avoids a double elibtoolize call (which could lead to subtle
    problems on some more exotic systems or just a QA warning).

I modified gtk+-3.22.30 (in my local) the same as 3.24.1 and it works.
The user patch applied clean to and was cleanly applied.


Can the same be done to at least the last stable which is gtk+-3.22.30?

There are a few others (that I know of) that would like to not have to modify and keep track of a local ebuild if they don't need to.

And thanks again, for the quick reply and fix.
Comment 3 Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2018-10-23 11:21:11 UTC
No, I don't intend to touch a stable ebuild. I suggest using 3.24.1. I should look into stabilizing it soon, too.
Comment 4 Don O 2018-10-23 11:57:56 UTC
If you're going to stabilize it soon, that's fine.

thanks for the work and replies.
