Description Yosh de Vos 2005-07-07 09:59:39 UTC

I would like to see this program back in the portage tree.

The program is a linux port of the very popular windows program FTD.
FTD stands for Full Thread Database and is a binary usenet index system.

I'm using this program almost 2 years now, and I think it's time for an ebuild right now. Also a few gentoo users requested this ebuild.
I have tested this ebuild with x86 and amd64 by different users.

1/ RESTRICT="nomirror" - why?
2/ You should consider using mozilla and firefox use flags for selecting between
those two dependencies.
3/ Empty RDEPEND is redundant.
4/ What is that horrible cat stuff in src_install() supposed to do? Is that some
wrapper script which is not distributed w/ the tarball? Then attach it
separately so that it can be put into ${FILESDIR} and fix the ebuild accordingly.

Please, attach a fixed ebuild (and the script of needed) and reopen then.

Ok, I modified the ebuild as requested. The wrapper is excluded from the ebuild
and now exists as a separated file in files.
Accept keywords is still defined as: KEYWORDS="~amd64 ~x86"
But I think this program is enough tested with this architects to be noted as

I have no replies since my last reaction. So now I have changed the status,
maybe someone will notice this ebuild request.

- Last news updates on that site are from late 2009.
- Last bug response from late 2010, 25% of the bugs are left open.
- Not widely used: Dutch, illegal content, and so on...

Unless upstream (which seems dead to me) decides to pick this up again, I don't think it is a benefit to anyone that we add this to the Portage tree; if someone still wants this, I think an user overlay would do the job.
