1000+ Gentoo packages in PackageMap 2009-06-13
I count 1011 Gentoo packages in the packagemap repository now. I’m seriuous about packagemap.
Through an extra script it got a little bit easier today for you to join in: To add an entry for package “dev-libs/icu” to the map you
- do a quick research about the package’s vendor (and find “ibm”)
- decide for a product name (“libicu” here, “lib” prefix for all libraries)
- run a script:
cd code/gentoo ./map-package-to-vendor.sh dev-libs/icu ibm libicu
That script creates a packagemap file “database/ibm/libicu.xml” for you, that’s it. The third parameter (the product name) is optional: The package name (“icu” here) would have been chosen without it.
Please consider adding your own Gentoo packages to packagemap yourself this way. I just cannot do it all alone.
