some days ago I asked about a portage API on #gentoo-portage and they
pointed me to the new portage rewrite (saviour branch). Because I want
to do a complete OO rewrite of my program glcu (glcu.sf.net) a OO
portage API would be really useful. And I think this would be useful for
any other portage tool (e.g. porthole or everything in gentoo-
portage-tools ) as well. So before I write some extra stuff that can
only be applied to my program, it would probably be a lot better to
directly help with a high level portage API. Therefore I would
appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction. To be
able to start, I have a few questions:
- Is one of these svn-web-repository up to date?
- Where can I find general ideas about the functionality of the planned
new portage API. (TODO files, anything about the general structure)
- Is any API functionality already implemented (so that I can learn how
it is meant to work). Where can I find the corresponding files?
- When is the best time to find some people of the savior branch in
#gentoo-portage (I don't have time to lure in the # all the time, but
it's probably the best and quickest way to get more informations)
Any help is very much appreciated!
