Description Josh Nichols (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-05-17 02:54:58 UTC
All of the jars that xdoclet provide have its version in their filenames.

This makes it difficult to create ebuilds which depend xdoclet jars, without requiring a specific version. In addition, requiring a specific version isn't a good idea, considering that the package isn't slotted.

latest ebuild seems to allready do this?
all sloted the same, don't think its worth doeing for older version?
Comment 2 Jan Brinkmann (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-05-21 04:46:00 UTC
imho no need to change the old ebuilds, which also make use of packed jars
