Could you create a tarbal with the code as it now exists
and make it available to a temporary URL or send it to me ?
A package was submitted to savannah.gnu.org.
This mail was sent to address@hidden,
Curtis Callender <address@hidden> described the package
Package: A Gnome UI for Portage
System name: gemerge
This package wants to apply for inclusion in the GNU project
My project is designed to present the user with a GUI frontend for
Gentoo Linux\' Portage interface. This will be coded in
GTK/GDK/Gnome, as there is already a KDE interface for just such a
thing. The Portage system is Gentoo\'s package management system.
I\'ve noticed that the majority of Gentoo\'s users are KDE, along with
the majority of Gentoo\'s developers. Because of the lack of a Gnome
frontend, I\'ve decided to put my programming skills to good use.
This will be done in C/C++.
Perhaps most users are KDE users? I wonder why? *grin*.
Anyways, It does not exist yet but I\'m working on it.
Other Software Required:
The only software to work properly is Gentoo\'s Portage system, which
is covered under some Open-Source license. The future release of
Portage 2.0 will use some database backend (right now the File System
is used) but that has yet been undertermined. I am sure that it too
will be OpenSource.
