The bindist USE flag and RESTRICT=bindist

Hi,
We currently have two mechanisms to influence building of packages
that cannot be binary redistributed. Some 150 packages have
RESTRICT=bindist (unconditional, or USE conditional), whereas
27 packages have the bindist flag in their IUSE. Until very recently,
the two sets were practically disjoint, with only one single package
(www-client/chromium) in both sets.

As a consequence, neither building with the well-known USE=bindist nor
with ACCEPT_RESTRICT="* -bindist" (presumably less known and Portage
only?) will guarantee that only redistributable binaries will be
built [1].

So a few days ago I filed bug 541408 and dependent bugs, with the goal
that ebuilds with the bindist flag in their IUSE should also add
RESTRICT="!bindist? ( bindist )". However, it turned out that some 10
packages are using the bindist flag only in REQUIRED_USE but nowhere
else [2] (with foo being some feature flag):

   IUSE="bindist foo"
   REQUIRED_USE="bindist? ( !foo )"

IMHO, the bindist USE flag is redundant in these cases. So we should
get rid of the REQUIRED_USE and add a restriction instead:

   IUSE="foo"
   RESTRICT="foo? ( bindist )"

What do you think? Should we proceed in this direction?

arm64 Mar 2nd update


I’ve put my experimental stage3 and portage snapshot in my dev space. See: http://dev.gentoo.org/~tgall

For this week plan to test install stage3 on the HiKey and start to get the handbook updated in the wiki. We’ll end up with an img that can be dd’ed to sd media or the eMMC on the HiKey.

Thanks much to dlan for helping out with keywording.

Regards,
Tom
Dare I say arm64 arch lead?

Why gcc-config is a separate utility, not a module for eselect?

Hi all!
Why some utilites like a gcc-config or java-config is a separate utilites, not a module for eselect? Maybe
these utilites has some features, that cannot be implemented with eselect?

P.S. Sorry my poor and bad English language.

berlios -> sourceforge move

Hi all

I'm forwarding you my mail in request of Michał in the hope someone
could find it useful :)

----- Forwarded message from Michael Mair-Keimberger <m.mairkeimberger <at> gmail.com> -----

From: Michael Mair-Keimberger <m.mairkeimberger <at> gmail.com>
To: Michał Górny <mgorny <at> gentoo.org>
Date: Wed, 25 Feb 2015 20:06:35 +0100
Subject: berlios -> sourceforge move

Hello Michał,

Attached is my list about all bugs from the "berlios.de is gone"
tracker (bug #494678) - included with bugs which are already fixed.
Excluded are bugs which are either already removed, or are masked for 
removal.
I've searched for the official homepage for every project, but please
note that i haven't spend to much time on the internet for finding the
correct one.

First of all: a legend of which information is included in this list
* column 1 & 2:	year and month of the last release of given package.
		They are at the beginning so you can easliy sort them
		after year/month with cat $list|sort
* column 3:	O=open bug
		OP=open bug + push request
		FO=fixed by another one then me
		FM=fixed by myself (via PR)
* column 4:	T=this package is marked testing
		ST=this package has stable and testing keywords (more
			than one ebuild
		S=this package is marked stable
		S(x86)=only stable on x86 (not keyworded on amd64)
		S(ppc)=only stable on ppc (not keyworded on amd64)
* column 5:	gentoo bug number
* column 6:	category/package-name
* column 7:	this is my personal ranking about the package status
		based on their last release:
		below 2009: package probably dead
		below 2013: package probalby dead but last release isn't
		_that_ old.
		everything over 2013 is considered active. However, this
		is just my personal reference.
* column 8:	actual homepage of the package. (with some notes
		sometimes)

Next some notes about various packages:

> x11-apps/amlc (bug #537820):
This one was already fixed by Jeroen Roovers, but as i was looking for
it's homepage i think http://zi.fi/amlc/ is the better official hp then
the sourceforge link. There is even a newer version (though it just one
file to compile) which is from 11/2013.

> app-office/rubrica (bug #537708):
This one is really strange. I was looking for it's latest version and
while it seems our version is the last one (2.1.6) i think the _real_
latest version is 2.0.12.
It seems like the project had some version bug because 2.1.6 was created
02/2008 while 2.0.12 is from 10/2012. I haven't looked into it's
changelog but i guess we would need a version bump here.

> net-irc/ngircd (bug #537818)
This bug should be closed. You already pushed my PR a few days ago ;)
BTW, the same is true for bug #516802 - could be closed as well ;)

> media-libs/emfengine (bug #537754)
First though here was: wow - terrible outdated version what we have (0.8
vs. 2.0.3) but than i saw it went commercial. This one probably could be
removed as there are no sources to download - unless you pay for it.

> games-emulation/gngeo (bug #537734)
Long time no release, but since it has source changes from 01/2015 i've
marked it as "active"

> net-misc/qtnx & net-misc/nxcl (bug #537774 & #537778)
Both ebuilds fetch the same source code and my first though was we have
the same package under two different names. I might be wrong here as i
didn't looked into it. However since the last change was 03/2008 i'll
consider it dead and i think they should be removed.

> x11-themes/slim-themes (bug #537814)
I've lied a bit about its change-date. While slim itself has had its last
release 10/2013, slim-themes weren't touch for some longer time. However
since slim itself isn't _that_ dead i decided to mark slim-themes as
active as well (they share the same HP anyway)
BTW, from my open PR's i consider this one pretty sure merge-able,
especially since i still use slim myself (for vm's) ;)

There are also a few package were we are not up-to-date. It's noted next
to the homepage link.
Also please note that i haven't checked for further bugs on bugzilla, so
there might be already open bugs for some of those issues :)

Regards
