Ok, i send a lot of them, but hopefully they're interesting :)
I did research a bit about adding SQL support to portage -- as much as
i see, mysql is smallest sql server, which could be emerged with
In beginning, i think that SQL database structure should be created,
which supports basic fields from ebuilds (DESCRIPTION, HOMEPAGE,
SRC_URI, LICENSE, SLOT, KEYWORDS, IUSE, DEPEND, RDEPEND).
Then emerge --createsql command should be set up, which adds data from
/usr/portage/ filetree into this sql database.
You're talking about the cache, take a look at the cache subsystem and
write a mysql module for it. This will never become a default though (we
would get killed if portage starts to depend on mysql).
I have some questions now:
* Where i could find basic ebuild specification?
Developer handbook, ebuild(5), bash(1)
* Where i could find basic portage tree datastructure specification,
if there is any?
* Does portage have some code documentation for faster learning?
(or should i just read the code?)
code documentation ... what's that? ;)
