Moving work into Gentoo (Well, really just a little more work toward it...)

Too wired (far too much caf coffee at PyGTA) to work on Cinemon directly this evening (luckily I was pretty much done anyway), so I dumped the live database and am loading it into Gentoo.

Since it's taking forever I've been doing some work to create and submit ebuilds for many of my open-source projects. Also did one for FontTools and another for PySNMP. Will see if I did them right when the Gentoo people look at them. I notice that the original PySNMP ebuild (for 2.0.x) is very minimal compared with what I've been doing, no comments or anything... not sure if that's considered best practice or not.

    Turns out that the ebuild maintainers want them to use different variable names, not include a pointless method overloading and not have as many comments. Will have to work on that next time I'm in Linux.

    I've noticed that a lot of the portage ebuilds are out of date, and not well maintained (compared to freebsd, for example). )-: The one that irks me the most at the moment is of course zope and related stuff... seems pretty much abandononed by gentoo people. But perhaps they are just reflecting the cosmos. (-:<br />

    The only reason I'm running gentoo over freebsd is supposedly for the ATI drivers and wireless drivers. I've yet to get either of these working reliably or at all! Sigh.<br />

    I wonder if the "not well maintained" and the "don't use comments or descriptive variables" are linked somehow? Oh well, if I can get moved over to using Linux as my primary dev platform then at least that subset of the Python emerges that I use should be kept up to date :) .
