Thanks, this document is pretty convenient. It looks like 480 is free;
would that work for Minetest?

[gentoo-dev] acct-{group,user}/minetest request for ID 481

2019-11-03 Thread William Breathitt Gray
Hello,

`games-action/minetest` creates a "minetest" user and group with random
respective IDs, used for running the Minetest server daemon. The latest
version bump PR (https://github.com/gentoo/gentoo/pull/13272) follows
GLEP 81 by creating acct-{group,user}/minetest with 481 assigned as
their respective IDs.

Is this assignment all right?

Thank you,

William Breathitt Gray

Bug #204067 is a duplicate of bug #194607. From the corresponding
Bugzilla thread, it looks like bug #194607 no longer applies.

If this are the only security issue, Doom3 and Quake4 may no longer
require the masks.

If Python 2.7 is EOL upstream then it sounds like upstream will not be
maintaining it any longer; i.e. no more bug fixes nor support. That
means Gentoo would have to maintain its own Python 2.7 fork if it's to
remain in the repository. Naturally, maintaining a Python fork is not
something the Gentoo team is ready to do, so it makes sense to remove
Python 2.7 now that the EOL date is approaching.

Besides, the Python 2.7 EOL date has been known since 2015, so those
python 2-only packages will have had at least 5 years to migrate to
Python 3.

Marcel,

I think you're replying to a spam bot. That doesn't seem to be a real
person -- it's just grabbing a bunch of technical jargon and linking to
an adult video website.

Cuckoo is a spam bot. The bot assumes the first response will be a user
pointing out that the link is dangerous. So the bot's response is to
respond back automatically with an aggressive denial in the hopes that
more users will continue to click the spam link.

[gentoo-dev] Looking for a co-maintainer: games-fps/gzdoom

2020-06-07 Thread William Breathitt Gray
I am looking for a co-maintainer for the games-fps/gzdoom package.
GZDoom version 4.4.0 was just released and GZDoom has been refactored to
move its audio code to a new external library called ZMusic:
https://bugs.gentoo.org/727448

A games-fps/gzdoom-4.4.0 version bump will require the introduction of a
new zmusic ebuild. Since GZDoom is one of the larger DOOM source ports,
I figure it'll be good to have more than one person looking after these
packages.

If anyone is interested in helping out, please let me know.

Thanks,

William Breathitt Gray

[gentoo-dev] Packages up for grabs: games-action/minetest and dependencies

2021-05-12 Thread William Breathitt Gray
I haven't spend as much time following Minetest development as I have in
the past, so I've removed myself as proxy maintainer in the hopes
someone more familiar with the project and code will take over.

The following packages are up for grabs:

games-action/minetest
acct-group/minetest
acct-user/minetest
dev-cpp/benchmark
dev-cpp/prometheus-cpp
