1 vapier 1.5 Developers to contact:
2     solar@gentoo.org
3     vapier@gentoo.org
4    
5 solar 1.1 /* Add notes here */
6 solar 1.3
7 vapier 1.6 - relative qfile doesnt quite work:
8     $ cd /bin
9     $ qfile bash
10     app-shells/bash (/bin/bash)
11     app-shells/bash (/etc/bash)
12    
13 solar 1.8 -- We cant/wont do relative paths unless we force dot slash ./behavior
14    
15 solar 1.3 - multiline reads don't yet work for quse/qsearch
16    
17     - quse needs a rewrite.
18    
19 solar 1.11 - Speed is everything.
20     Having your PORTDIR and VDB on the right file system helps dramatically
21    
22     IDE raid with PORTDIR on reiserfs:
23     q -r
24     q: Finished 20655 entries in 1.990951 seconds
25    
26     IDE raid with PORTDIR on ext3:
27     q -r
28     q: Finished 20655 entries in 203.664252 seconds
29    
30    
31 solar 1.3 - Fetching via anoncvs.
32     The cvs module for gentoo-projects is mirrored. You may download a
33     pretty recent copy using the following command. Note: that this is not
34     the official cvs server but rather a mirror so it lags about an hour or
35     so behind the real tree which is hosted on cvs.gentoo.org
36    
37     cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@zarquon.twobit.net:/var/cvsroot -q -z9 co -R gentoo-projects/portage-utils
38    
39     - Adding applets is easy using the q framework.
40     cp template.c qmyapplet.c (all applets use the prefix of the letter 'q')
41     edit applets.h add your prototype, applet definition to the enum then
42     incr LAST_APPLET. Scroll down the typedef for applets[] and add your
43     applet name following the existing syntax. Please try to keep applet
44 vapier 1.7 names under 8 chars. Finally, edit main.c, scroll to the bottom, and
45     add your applet to the #include list.
46 solar 1.3
47 solar 1.4 When and where you can please try to use an existing applet and extend
48     on it's functionality by adding more options vs adding a bunch of new
49     little applets.
