Description Marek Szuba gentoo-dev 2020-11-03 15:35:58 UTC
In order for Gentoo Linux to properly support side-by-side installation of
different versions of Lua (including LuaJIT), please migrate this package as
to lua.eclass (for packages which should support multiple Lua implementations
at the same time, i.e. most likely Lua modules) or lua-single.eclass (for
packages which only have to support one Lua implementation at a time). For
details, consult documentation of respective eclasses as well as
already-migrated ebuilds in the tree.

Please note that since slotted dev-lang/lua is currently masked, your
migrated ebuilds should be masked as well. There is a section of package.mask,
created in September 2020, which you can use for this purpose so that it will
be easier in the future to unmask them all in one go.

Thank you in advance for your effort!

    dev-libs/redland-bindings: migrate to lua.eclass
    Other upstreams, take note - THIS is how one distributes language bindings!
    IMHO the only thing that could still be better here is if they supported
    out-of-tree builds so that it isn't necessary to copy the sources.
    Builds, tests and installs fine for all Lua implementations currently
    in the tree so list them all as supported.
