Description Seemant Kulleen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-08-23 05:03:28 UTC
Hi Peit,

Might there be a way to have a table of USE variables generated automatically
from /usr/portage/profiles/use.desc?  If so, can you implement please?
Comment 1 Colin Morey (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-08-24 07:23:55 UTC
see the new page at
Comment 2 Colin Morey (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-08-27 17:53:50 UTC
o.k. new page at /use,html let me know where you want to link it from (or up
date the use-howto(probably easier).
Comment 3 Seemant Kulleen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-08-27 18:09:21 UTC
well, if you got the time, please go ahead and update the USE howto and also the
developer's howto, in which the table was created manually.
Comment 4 John Davis (zhen) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-10-03 14:09:51 UTC
Can we just use this as the centralized database and simply make links from the 
use guide and dev guide to it? It would be *so* much cleaner and easier..

Comment 5 Seemant Kulleen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-10-21 18:17:38 UTC
a resounding yes
Comment 6 John Davis (zhen) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-10-25 09:46:50 UTC
