Layman 1.2.5 released

I was time to collect recent commits into a new release - here it is: Layman 1.2.5. This includes the code from teaming up with Christian Groschupp during 26C3. Let me try to summarize:

New features

  • Allow overriding of VCS commands
  • Allow running VCS from PATH (fixes #280539)

Bug fixes

  • Migrate XML handling from minidom to ElementTree (also fixes #261666)
  • Fix handling of Subversion overlays whose name contains one or more '@' characters (#295018)
  • Fix handling of non-ASCII characters (#286290)

How to upgrade

  1. Unmask =app-portage/layman-1.2.5 if you're on stable
  2. sudo emerge -av =app-portage/layman-1.2.5
  3. sudo etc-update

What else?

  • Please report bugs!
  • Interested in taking care of bug #260218, i.e. writing a patch for it?
