4
5 21 Jan 2004; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: TGL's fixes
6 for exec/child/wait problems. Unset GREP_OPTIONS GREP_COLOR. has() and use()
7 no longer attempt to determine if they are to be quiet or noisy -- They
8 default to noisy -- useq() and hasq() are the non-verbose versions.
9 EBUILD_PHASE set to add a hack-ish way around global scope calls in
10 eclasses -- NOTHING SHOULD BE CALLED IN THE GLOBAL SCOPE. Touchup to the
11 inherit() code that should finally allow the removal of the ECLASS and
12 INHERITED settings. Removed tty (use/has) calls. Removed dirname calls --
13 portage.py handles setting the dbkey filename now.
14
15 21 Jan 2004; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: Ed Catmur's
16 (with a little TGL added in) patch for --ask. Added a 'metadata' target
17 that skips the sync and only updates the cache. FEATURES="getbinpkg" added.
18 TGL's exit code fixes. Fixed match code for -S so it doesn't complain about
19 specific and double versions. Unmerge via dbpath fix. Rewrote rsync's
20 options that supports --verbose and --quiet operation now and can force
21 checksumming all files using --debug. Sort the files in the cache update
22 so it's a little more predictable.
23
24 21 Jan 2004; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> prepstrip: changed
25 --strip-debug to --strip-unneeded.
26
27 21 Jan 2004; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> getbinpkg.py: Updates to
28 enable HTTP/HTTPS authentication.
29
30 21 Jan 2004; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: best_from_dict
31 added to grab the best entry from set of dicts using a list of the keys for
32 priority. jstubb's patch to fix listdir -- splits it into a cache and list
33 setup. jstubb's patch for varexpand to handle $VAR better. Latexer's patch
34 for KernelVersion code to use Makefiles instead of the version.h. Modules
35 are loaded from /etc/portage/modules or defaults, whichever works. Fixed
36 the /etc/make.profile-is-missing traceback. Spawn can be given 3 pipes to
37 redirect stdin,stdout,stderr to specific outputs, terminals, or files.
38 TGL's patch for cache functions in portage.py so that they do not cache at
39 inappropriate times. PORTAGE_TMPFS is now used if set as a temporary file
40 operation area -- recommended to actually be a ramfs/tmpfs filesystem for
41 speed. Genone enhanced the deprecated profile patch.
42
43 31 Jan 2004; Masatomo Nakano <nakano@gentoo.org> emerge: Fixed --skipfirst
44 bug. This closes #36880.
45
46 29 Jan 2004; Masatomo Nakano <nakano@gentoo.org> emerge: TGL's patch
47 for imporving overlay verbose. This closes #39765.
48
49 27 Jan 2004; Masatomo Nakano <nakano@gentoo.org> portage.py: Fixed
50 autouse bug. autouse were ignored.
51
52 21 Jan 2004; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: Output failed
53 cache updates during emerge sync.
54
55 21 Jan 2004; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> *: VDB_PATH fixes.
56
57 21 Jan 2004; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Only use
58 custom profiles when not called by repoman. ROOT never changes profile
59 roots, only custom/system profiles var/cache/edb/virtuals. Sandbox fix
60 where sandbox was creating an invalid logfile (not giving a summary)
61 due to a '/' in SANDBOX_LOG. Turned down the Lockfile output. Double
62 check the INCOMPLETE MERGE identifications as it can be caused by cache.
63
64 24 Jan 2004; <nakano@gentoo.org> emerge: Improved timestamp check
65 when 'emerge sync'. Added catching amiguous error when unmerge.
66 This closes #24325.
67
68 23 Jan 2004; <nakano@gentoo.org> emerge, portage.py: Fixed 2 bugs.
69 Portage doesn't read local virtuals file, which happens on only cvs
70 version. package is blocked by itself.
71
72 21 Jan 2004; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py, emerge:
73 Fix from genone for emerge's direct reading of packages and his patch
74 that also adds in /etc/portage/profile as a stacked profile.
75
76 21 Jan 2004; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Completed
77 inheritence capabilities for portage.config reading some files. Moved a
78 copy of the getvirtuals() function into settings to handle multiple
79 profiles properly.
80
81 *portage-2.0.50_pre17/18/19 (21 Jan 2004): Modules for DBs and quick fixes
82
83 21 Jan 2004; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> *: Moved all references
84 to var/db/pkg to portage.VDB_PATH --- This will change again -- NEED TO
85 BE MOVED INTO A PATH/CONSTANTS SETUP.
86
87 21 Jan 2004; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> dosed: Quick fix for
88 the basename missing/misplaced issue.
89
90 21 Jan 2004; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: Added
91 /dev/console to PREDICT to attempt a workaround for a serial console
92 bug. dbkey is now set through portage.py/doebuild to allow for modular
93 db code.
94
95 21 Jan 2004; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: regen doesn't
96 require root anymore. Edited the timestamp check to be a little more
97 friendly -- delete the portdir timestamp and it won't use the alternate.
98 Fix some permission settings. Added some warnings in for cachedirs that
99 are very likely to ruin your system. Cleaned out some of the eclass code
100 that isnt valid any longer.
101
102 21 Jan 2004; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portageq: Added vdb_path
103 as a target to get the db directory. Quickpkg uses this.
104
105 21 Jan 2004; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Added
106 load_mod() -- grabs a class/function from a module and passes it back
107 without loading the module into the global scope. Added unique_array()
108 which eliminates duplicates from an array. grab_stacked() operates like
109 the other grab* and getconfig functions, but takes a filename and a set
110 of paths that it will apply incrementally or clobbers -- for profile
111 inheritance. getconfig no longer exits on non-existance returns None.
112 Class config now should be passed a profile path and a set of incremental
113 values instead of using the globals -- defaults to using the globals
114 presently and print an error message. Adding support for module configs
115 as a set of strings 'class.subclass.objectmodule':'module.to.use.object'
116 for load_mod and the database modules. Profile inheritance started. Killed
117 the eclass() super-function and replaced it with class eclass_cache that
118 is visible and conceptually simpler -- Also uses the plugable modules.
119 Cleaned out the sync calls for the DBs. MASSIVE simplification of the
120 aux_get code -- removed memory-caching in favor of system cache (actually
121 faster in all cases so far -- P100 and P4-2.2G). Lockfile usage around the
122 cachefile.
123
124 21 Jan 2004; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage_db_*: Updated
125 the API a little but to have permissions set properly. A little more
126 reorganization and removed the keycount checks.

204 requests for unreasable usage of ACCEPT_KEYWORDS.
205
206 11 Jan 2004; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: A counter
207 fix was fixed to actually check the counters of all CP versions to ensure
208 the new counter is higher than all existing ones. Modified the dblink
209 class to have class lockfiles for the db and tmpdb dirs as well as lock
210 other files before editing. Reorganization of the merge code in dblink
211 so that the tmpdb is filled immediately after preinst and prior to the

240 ignoring exit conditions for ebuilds.
241
242 04 Jan 2004; Masatomo Nakano <nakano@gentoo.org> repoman: Added PDEPEND

356
357 15 Dec 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: Added a call
358 to portageq that causes python to create optimized modules prior to it
359 ending up inside the sandbox. Added more output and logging to sync.
360
361 15 Dec 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> prepstrip: 'tree' is not

368
369 10 Dec 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> chkcontents: Uses portage
370 functions to do md5sum calcs.
371
372 10 Dec 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: Removed try()
373 as it isn't used, and was deprecated for a long while. Genone's fetching
374 size display added for --verbose. License display added. Added a little
375 debug for IUSE so we can figure out the binary package --verbose IUSE
376 issues that are randomly reported. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX's 'buildsyspkg'
377 patch for building only system packages into tbz2s. Unmerge fix for new
378 settings instances. RSYNC_RATELIMIT added.
379
380 10 Dec 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: ADA path
381 variables added to specials for env_update. Error messaeg correction for
382 make.defaults syntax errors. Unmerge now uses the environment file, if it
383 exists, to get the complete environment back to perform unmerge operations.
384 load_infodir() uses pkg settings completely now. Fixed the passing of
385 settings in unmerge and dblink. Fixed an issue regarding unlinking lockfiles
386 while inside of a sandbox.
387
388 09 Dec 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh, *.sh:
389 Moved helper scripts into bin/functions and made them sourceable -- they
390 now will die in cases where sub-parts fail. dodoc and keepdir are now
391 recursive-capable.
392
393 09 Dec 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: emerge.log now
394 set as portage:portage with 0660 perms. --debug now enables tracebacks
395 for dep generation instead of moving code out of the try block.
396
397 09 Dec 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> g-cpan.pl: rac's patch
398 to get arch list from portage's list of arches in the profiles.
399
400 09 Dec 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> repoman: Moved a bit of
401 the existing gpg code around -- it might work as is, but requires 'sign'
402 in features. Fixed a potential for repoman to miss updates that should
403 get a new manifest and commit. Fixed digest/manifest generation for
404 non-packagedir runs of repoman.
405
406 09 Dec 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emergehelp.py, make.conf,
407 getbinpkg.py: Message touch ups.
408
409 09 Dec 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: load_infodir()
410 uses pkg settings now instead of env and backup. Genone's custom mirror
411 patch included. Added some missing 'strict' flags for recursion in digest*().
412 Refixed the invalidentry stuff that was lost across patch merges. Fix for
413 pkg-keywords from genone included. Genone's deprecated profile patch for
414 reporting to a user that their current profile is deprecated. Message about
415 missing arch.list instead of spouting invalid keywords messages.
416
417 08 Dec 2003; Masatomo Nakano <nakano@gentoo.org> repoman:
418 Added all arch dependency check. This closes bug #24160.
419
420 07 Dec 2003; Masatomo Nakano <nakano@gentoo.org> emerge,portage.py:
421 Fixed bugs. 1.--debug doesn't work 2.Portage breaks files
422 in /var/db/*/*. 3.No stop if dependency problem happens.
423 They are only cvs version problems.
424
425 01 Dec 2003; Masatomo Nakano <nakano@gentoo.org> emerge: Fixed bug which
426 always remakes info dir file.
427
428 29 Nov 2003; Masatomo Nakano <nakano@gentoo.org> portage.py: Fixed issue with
429 ebuild name rule. Fixed typo with variable name.
430 This closes bug #17172,#34666
431
432 29 Nov 2003; Masatomo Nakano <nakano@gentoo.org> emerge: Fixed issue with
433 lacking the "setting" argument for pkgmerge()
434
435 29 Nov 2003; Masatomo Nakano <nakano@gentoo.org> emerge: fixed rsync bug.
436 This closes bug #34660.
437
438 28 Nov 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Migration
439 to non-global settings started -- class config has new functionality and
440 is locked after portage is finished initializing -- changes cannot be made
441 to the global instance of config 'settings' -- reset() is now functional,
442 setcpv() loads PKGUSE from /etc/portage/package.use, load_infodir() loads
443 all small files (under 4k) from the vardb directory of an installed package
444 so that operations have the same post* settings as they had at merge time.
445 Begin modifications to spawn() to allow for files/pipes to be used for
446 IO instead of using getstatusoutput which does not take an environment
447 parameter like execve(). check_config_instance() ensures that the provided
448 parameter is a 'class config' instance -- for ensuring that everything is
449 being passed properly with the changes. Fix for the local FS mirror issue
450 where it removed the first '/' instead of the last one. doebuild() cleanups
451 for readability and pkguse enhancements -- also remove getstatusoutput()
452 usage for depend so that we don't have to modify the active environment.
453 Fix for symlink mtime values returned from movefile. (Nakano) SLOTMOVE
454 added to global update functionality to fix some issues where a package
455 suddenly must become slotted. portdbapi takes a root parameter instead
456 of using settings. Slightly more useful output from depend. binarytree()
457 now takes a pkgdir instead of using settings. Portage will now die if
458 ebuild.sh exits on a signal.
459
460 Moved some functions around and renamed them for general use -- derived
461 from match2 in class portagetree:
462 match_to_list() find all atoms in a list that match a given package.
463 best_match_to_list() determines the most specific match. Needs work.
464 match_from_list() find all packages in a list that match a given atom.
465
466 28 Nov 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: Fixed an issue
467 with searchdesc wanting root permissions if run as non-root. Migrated to
468 the non-global config class. EMERGE_FROM added for the dyn_preinst patch
469 -- Indicates if a merge is occuring from an ebuild or from a binary. Patch
470 for rsync timestamp checking from Nakano.
471
472 28 Nov 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: Save PKGUSE.
473 Pebeneto's patch for dyn_preinst and SELinux added as a fix for binary
474 and ebuild merges. Added a kill for portage during the depend phase so
475 that portage will actually die if you control-C.
476
477 28 Nov 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> *: MASSIVE set of changes
478 to start using locally defined 'class config' instances. This allows us to
479 start working on some parallelism among other things. Created this way:
480 mysettings = portage.config(clone=portage.settings)
481
482 The Following functions now take a 'config' parameter:
483 spawn(), fetch(), digestgen(), digestcheck(), spawnebuild(), doebuild(),
484 merge(), dep_opconvert(), dep_check(), dblink.__init__()
485
486 package.keywords is now implemented curtasy of genone/max. PKGUSE was
487 rewritten for the global config killing and is also included. X11 man
488 pages now found and zipped correctly. SYS.PATH fixes for the python
489 migration -- issue actually only shows up on 2.2 systems because of how
490 compiled modules are used if found regardless of the original source's
491 existance.
492
493 28 Nov 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> tabcheck.py: An easier
494 way to make sure that all the python stuff is correctly using tabs and
495 not mixing spaces.
496
497 28 Nov 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> xpak, xpak.py: Fixes
498 to ensure that it works if the current dir is missing and that the python
499 path gets set properly.
500
501 22 Nov 2003; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: Fixed
502 calls in vartree method to invalidentry().... made them call call
503 self.dbapi.invalidentry() (there were multiple wrong method calls.)
504
505 10 Nov 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> md5check.py: Checks all
506 digests and SRC_URIs for filenames and associated MD5s. Reports collisions
507 between versions/packages, missing, and extra lines in digests.
508
509 *portage-2.0.49-r17/18 (10 Nov 2003): Fixes
510
511 10 Nov 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> *: Changed portage to
512 be the first path in sys.path for all python scripts. Also enabled
513 optimizations from the scripts to ensure everything imported is built
514 for speed. ebuild: applied fix for the '//' root breaking the db[].
515 prepstrip: etdyn quickfix
516
517 10 Nov 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: fix for
518 RESTRICT=nouserpriv. GENTOO_MIRRORS can have paths set to take files
519 from. Fixes for mishandled cache data regarding *pkgsplit(). Fixes for
520 '*' being returned as part of a package split. An 'invalidentry()' fix
521 for a traceback. Nakano's fixes for virtual removals not working properly,
522 sandbox violations during pkg_nofetch, || depend selection. Genone's
523 fixpackages speedup.
524
525 10 Nov 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: PORTAGE_TMPDIR
526 fix for distcc. Variable passing bug patch for export_functions. Exit 1
527 added for nofetch to stop sandbox violation. Nakano's --tree patch added.
528 Improved the unmerge messages to denote what kind of unmerge fails. Info
529 pages regex pattern adjusted to allow most any name for a page.
530
531 10 Nov 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> repoman: genone's xml
532 linting additions.
533
534 01 Nov 2003; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> pym/cvstree.py:
535 fix bug #32071, by properly escaping a string to not be a regex. Checked
536 thru entire *.py tree and found this is the only mis-use of strings that
537 need to be escaped.
538
539 31 Oct 2003; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: /lib/modules
540 now gets "unmerge protection." This is half of the config protection
541 functionality. It means that anything in /lib/modules will not be deleted
542 when a package is unmerged (often automatically when a user merges a
543 kernel module ebuild for a new kernel.) This solves the "my module
544 disappeared!" issue. This closes bug #1477.
545
546 31 Oct 2003; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: Should no longer
547 spit out wacky "!!! no match found" warnings when auto-cleaning.
548
549 30 Oct 2003; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: Only run
550 depscan.sh if it exists on disk. This allows Portage to run inside a stage1
551 where /sbin/depscan.sh doesn't exist.
552
553 30 Oct 2003; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: Applied fix to
554 allow multi-level "use? ( )" in SRC_URI, closing bug #16159.
555
556 *portage-2.0.49-r15/16 (21 Oct 2003): Fixes
557
558 21 Oct 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> fix-db.py: was broken
559 for python2.3 -- fixed now.
560
561 21 Oct 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Added
562 lockfiles to prelink md5 checks. Fixed caching bug where cache objects
563 were passed back as pointers instead of copies. Added 'invalidentry'
564 function to handle lockfiles -- It tests/deletes them using unlockfile.
565 Added fix-db.py to the 'databases is broken' messages.
566
567 21 Oct 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: added CDPATH
568 to unset. SELinux fix for sandbox.
569
570 *portage-2.0.49-r13/14 (10 Oct 2003): Fixes
571
572 10 Oct 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> *: Full adaptations
573 for python2.3 implemented. Installation setup for /usr/lib/portage/pym
574 instead of site-packages. Fix for Old-Instance unmerging which stopped
575 happening due to changed path names. Binaries shouldn't merge under
576 fetchonly.
577
578 *portage-2.0.49-r11/12 (08 Oct 2003): Internal Only.
579
580 *portage-2.0.49-r10 (08 Oct 2003): Fixes
581
582 08 Oct 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Fixed a
583 seemingly random traceback involving lockfiles -- Categories weren't
584 being created before a lockfile was attempted in the category directory.
585 More enhancements to aid migration to python-2.3. Added writemsg() as
586 a general function for outputting information -- Takes an argument that
587 is interpreted as debug level and prints synchronisly to stderr. Yanked
588 domenu pending a GLEP.
589
590 *portage-2.0.49-r9 (07 Oct 2003): Fixes
591
592 07 Oct 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Atomic lock
593 updates and self.create() fixes. Counter enhancements.
594
595 *portage-2.0.49-r8 (05 Oct 2003):
596
597 05 Oct 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> *: Changed #! line to
598 use /usr/bin/python to aid in migration.
599
600 05 Oct 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: More use/has
601 output fixups.
602
603 05 Oct 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: General cleanups.
604 Added in baselayout info to emerge info. --skipfirst isn't a persistent
605 option on resume anymore.
606
607 05 Oct 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> fix-db.py: New script to
608 aid in diagnosing and eventually fixing /var/db issues. It makes almost no
609 modifications at the moment.
610
611 05 Oct 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> prepstrip: Addition of
612 a condition for etdyn binaries -- they list as shared objects but aren't.
613
614 05 Oct 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> repoman: Added non-cvs
615 patch -- repoman can be used outside of cvs trees for scanning/checking.
616 Added a masking fix for packages that use 'arch?' dependencies. Permission
617 fix on stats pickle.
618
619 05 Oct 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Subversion
620 directories are ignored along with CVS in listdir() when ignorecvs is set.
621 USE_EXPAND is fixed. Global and package counter fixes. ATOMIC VARDB moves
622 are now implemented -- Still need a way to recover broken operations.
623 Counter functions are now implemented in dbapi only. vardbapi now implements
624 aux_get for all possible files listed in the package's info directory. New
625 functions: lockfile()/lockdir(), unlockfile()/unlockdir().
626
627 *portage-2.0.49-r7 (26 Sep 2003): Binary package fixes + spacing issues.
628
629 26 Sep 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge.sh: Spacing fixes
630 for tab/space mixes. glob fix for getgccversion().
631
632 26 Sep 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Fix for binary
633 use flag tb.
634
635 26 Sep 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> xpak.py: Fix for scan()
636 tb when file is invalid or shorter than XPAK header length.
637
638 *portage-2.0.49-r6 (23 Sep 2003): SELinux, DistCC, and pretend output fixes.
639
640 23 Sep 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: selinux context
641 fixes -- using ${T} now. DISTCC_DIR added by default and given an addwrite.
642
643 23 Sep 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: gccversion() added
644 to help distcc and the version checking calls that break distcc permissions.
645 Fix for create() and the useflag passing from binary packages. When using
646 pkgs, is_newer_ver_installed() no longer trashes ebuild names. Don't look
647 for fetch restrictions with binary packages. Included a modified patch that
648 shows only in-slot versions for packages during pretend output -- In-slot
649 now shows up exactly as a single-slot package would -- New slots show up
650 as new packages -- proper output. Killed debug for everything except regen
651 which now shows the deps being regenerated. Fixed regen to ignore keywords
652 just like sync does already... should fix a few missing cache entry problems
653 on rsync1 and speed up sync times all around.
654
655 23 Sep 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Additions for
656 distcc support.
657
658
659 *portage-2.0.49-r5 (19 Sep 2003): Fixes
660
661 19 Sep 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: Make
662 DISTCC_DIR set if not defined.
663
664 19 Sep 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: Fix for -U
665 introduced bugs with Str+None tracebacks. Mild change to log info -- Added
666 short pkgname before ebuild. Eclassdb changes and flush/save calls.
667
668 19 Sep 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Unregister
669 signal handling after receiving the signal and resend the signal we got.
670 Run depscan during env-update. Migrated eclass stuff into it's own pickle.
671 Code for moving /var/cache/edb/dep into a pickle for each category added --
672 disabled via hardcoded value presently. Removed some try blocks in favor
673 of detecting the cause of an error first -- Hopefully gives a little speed
674 up. Cache fixes and useful output added. A tbz2 moving bug where an error
675 was printed about files the destination existing already is now fixed. The
676 dircache is cleared on every unmerge now, to ensure the cache does not
677 interfere. bzip2 is spawned with the quiet flag now. Update list is sorted
678 for proper year/quarter order now. -arch isn't an invalid keywork anymore.
679 Generic pickle reading and writing functions added.
680
681 *portage-2.0.49-r4 (10 Sep 2003): Fixes
682
683 10 Sep 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> *: Added the facility
684 to incorporate binary package use flags when calculating deps. Changes in
685 -r2 and -r3 included quick fixes to SELinux code and the addition of
686 LINGUAS to USE_EXPAND.
687
688 *portage-2.0.49-r1 (25 Aug 2003): Fixes
689
690 25 Aug 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: -K traceback fix.
691 Made fetchonly quit traversing the merge code after fetching.
692
693 25 Aug 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Removed
694 auxcache saving code -- A few bugs and caching problems need to be resolved.
695 Moved a block of code in aux_get inside of an existing conditional -- Should
696 provide a small speedup.
697
698 *portage-2.0.49 (22 Aug 2003): GRP downloading, Selinux, General Fixes
699
700 22 Aug 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Make
701 auxcache saving more friendly.
702
703 *portage-2.0.49_pre20/21 (20 Aug 2003): Fixes + security enhancements
704
705 20 Aug 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Fix for

711 modifications on dispatch-conf.
712
713 20 Aug 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: sfperms
714 added to strip permissions if set in features. selinux context support.
715 Nakano's cleanups for unmerge output. Added distcc and ccache versions
716 into emerge info's output. 'autoaddcvs' FEATURE is documented in make.conf.
717
718 20 Aug 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Selinux code
719 added. No longer traceback on cp_list for categories. Added in a patch to
720 use a pickle for auxcache storing. Should help slow IO boxes.
721
722 *portage-2.0.49_pre18 (15 Aug 2003): Fixes.
723
724 15 Aug 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: Nakano's
725 fix for a glob expansion bug on a tar call.
726

735 and related output. Typo fixes. Parent thread no longer drops root in
736 userpriv. 'autoaddcvs' feature now determines if portage will auto-add
737 files to cvs. Virtuals fix for an empty key line. Added user categories
738 file as /etc/portage/categories.

740 *portage-2.0.49_pre17 (30 Jul 2003): Resuming/wget GRP, Sandbox updates
741
742 30 Jul 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> *: GRP updates to
743 use RESUMECOMMAND to determine how to download GRP binaries. Adjustments
744 to the portage.spawn() code to try and speed it up by eliminating the
745 copy phase (copy-on-write forking). Massive messages for corrupt FS issues.
746 Movefile() checks to ensure we actually complete the moves. Killed the
747 broken pipe message for tbz2 extraction.
748
749 *portage-2.0.49_pre16 (29 Jul 2003): Touchups
750
751 29 Jul 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> *: Clean up the debug
752 output and quickfix downloading tbz2s.
753
754 *portage-2.0.49_pre15 (29 Jul 2003): Fixes
755
756 29 Jul 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> repoman: imported time.
757
758 29 Jul 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: Corrected the
759 logic used to determine whether a package or an ebuild is used when given
760 the option.
761
762 29 Jul 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Changed a
763 lot of calls using 'print' into sys.stderr.write() calls. Added try/except
764 around the source lstat to catch funky errors where the file doesn't really
765 exist -- Presents descriptions to users about what to do. Added more catches
766 for movefile() calls to ensure it dies on failures. Changed the tbz2
767 extraction call to stop the 'cat: broken pipe' message.
768
769 *portage-2.0.49_pre14/48-r7 (24 Jul 2003): Fixes and getbinpkg caching
770
771 22 Jul 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> *: Typo fixes for
772 the ECLASS_DEPTH comparisons in ebuild.sh. Traceback fixes for blocking
773 packages in depclean and in pretend. Caching added to getbinpkg code --
774 generation of cache supported, but cachefile is staticly located. Langs
775 patch from Nakano in bug #9988 included.
776
777 *portage-2.0.49_pre13 (22 Jul 2003): Fixes
778
779 22 Jul 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> doman: Doesn't gzip
780 .keep files now.
781
782 22 Jul 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: USERLAND
783 fix. ** ECLASS depth tracker and additions to the new depend code. **
784
785 22 Jul 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: Fetch restriction
786 now adds a red F to the pretend output. Made the blockers message better.
787 Added 'local' to rsync excludes to allow the category to be added for admins.
788
789 22 Jul 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Fixed a TB
790 caused by a missing 'strict' reference --- Needs to be fixed better. Fixed
791 a typo in the populate code for bintree/getbinpkg.
792
793 *portage-2.0.49_pre11 (16 Jul 2003): GRP, General, VIDEO_CARDS/INPUT_DEVICES
794
795 16 Jul 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> quickpkg: SpanKY's
796 friendly edition now included.
797
798 16 Jul 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: USE_EXPAND
799 support for expanding bash variables into USE --- VIDEO_CARDS="blah"
800 USE="video_cards_blah". Added a notice about fetching metadata so you
801 can see that it's happening.
802
803 16 Jul 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> make.globals*: Added
804 default CHUNKSIZE for binhosts. Added defaults for USE_EXPAND which is
805 used to expand variables into USE from the give names.
806
807 16 Jul 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> *: Debug removal.
808
809 *portage-2.0.49_pre10 (16 Jul 2003): GRP and General Fixes

814 *portage-2.0.49_pre9 (16 Jul 2003): GRP and General Fixes
815
816 16 Jul 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: add
817 LDFLAGS and ASFLAGS. Exports are only done if vars are already set.
818
819 16 Jul 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: Added support for
820 --getbinpkg and --getbinpkgonly --- GRP complement. Fixes for blocking-
821 not-working bug
822
823 16 Jul 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> repoman: Patch to detect
824 incomplete digests.
825
826 16 Jul 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: ebuild fetch
827 now checks md5sums (run from ebuild). Support for getbinpkg.
828
829 16 Jul 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> xpak.py: Added more in-
830 memory operations support.
831
832 16 Jul 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> getbinpkg.py: Supporting
833 code for binary package retrieval.
834
835 *portage-2.0.48-r2 (29 Jun 2003): Fixes and Multiple Overlays
836
837 29 Jun 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: Fixed the
838 commands for tar.
839
840 29 Jun 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: Mode the chdir
841 to fix the spanky bugs down to post_emerge to fix the "can't merge an
842 ebuild file with an absolute path" bug.
843
844 29 Jun 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Added function
845 suffix_array(array,suffix) which takes an array and adds suffix to the end
846 of each element. Added 'cd / ;' into the getstatusoutput() calls to ldconfig.
847 Added a check so that portage doesn't try to add files/dir from a non-cvs
848 directory. Added 'manifest' target to ebuild/portage to only adjust the
849 manifest. Added Multiple overlay support -- Should be fairly thorough --
850 needs more debug though. Fixed portdbapi::new_protect_filename().
851
852 *portage-2.0.48-r2 (29 Jun 2003): Cleanups and Fixes (testing)
853
854 29 Jun 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: Lots of
855 consistency cleanups. Added more files to the var/db data for future
856 use. Added more die conditions to failure points. Fixed/Hacked a fix
857 into the inherit-not-dieing problem. Set TMPDIR and TMP globally. Added
858 notice for multiple inheritance. Fixed inheritance problem with multiple
859 inheritance clobbering previous list of eclasses. Basic support for
860 multiple overlays added to ebuild.sh.
861
862 29 Jun 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: SRC_URI fix for
863 'rm /etc/*' problem. Spanky bug: chdir to / to avoid problems when merging
864 from inside a builddir that gets deleted.
865
866 29 Jun 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> etc-update: Added notice
867 for symlinks in cfg_prot setups.
868
869 29 Jun 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> repoman: complain if
870 FEATURES=cvs not set.
871
872 29 Jun 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Added in
873 a work around for the 'USE=+useflag' users. Added support for nouserpriv
874 via RESTRICT. Fix the bug with ROOTs with no previous file causing a TB
875 from counter_tick(). Make symlinks follow config_protect just like normal
876 files.
877
878 10 Jun 2003; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh, portage.py,
879 various commands in bin/, cnf/make.conf.mac, cnf/make.globals.mac:
880 Added preliminary Mac OS X/BSD support.
881
882 06 Jun 2003; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: new eclass
883 dependency implementation to totally isolate eclass dependency tweaks
884 from in-ebuild dependency tweaks. eclasses now absolutely do not touch
885 DEPEND and RDEPEND. Any dependencies added by eclasses are transferred
886 to another variable and added in to DEPEND and RDEPEND after the entire
887 ebuild has been processed, and after RDEPEND has optionally inherited a
888 value from DEPEND due to it being unset. The result of this change is
889 that inherit statements no longer need to be placed strategically in an
890 ebuild so that they are after the DEPEND and RDEPEND, and fix a host of
891 other eclass mis-use/side-effect bugs.
892
893 *portage-2.0.48-r1 (29 May 2003): Touchups.
894
895 29 May 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: Quick fixes
896 to a couple of rare bugs. Added some quoting to $S. Removed the DISTCC
897 hosts variable. Moved build-info's creation around so that it actually
898 works for non-portage-compiled merges.
899
900 29 May 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> repoman: Quick fix for
901 the files-dir-not-added lack of notification. Added in a fix for a possible
902 security problem with the repoman commit messages and symlink-attacks.
903
904 29 May 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> cnf/*: Added in a diff
905 from 'Danny' that contained a SYNC cleanup and expanded explanation. :)
906
907 29 May 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> output.py: Fixed the
908 TitleBar and unset TERM issues.
909
910 29 May 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Added new
911 functions to aid in determining virtuals. cpv_all() added to dbapi -- it
912 displays all versions instead of just package names -- cp_all() now calls
913 this function to gain it's data. get_provide() and get_all_provides() added
914 to collect PROVIDE info from vartree packages. getallcpv() added to vartree
915 to reference the dbapi call. Always set ignoring errors on findname now.
916 Cleaned up the virtuals-trimming code. Don't mention the fixpackages script
917 if the user doesn't have any packages.
918
919 *portage-2.0.48 (20 May 2003): Cleanups Release.
920
921 20 May 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: Tiny cleanups.
922 Fixed the profile information in emerge -V for symlinks that have a
923 trailing '/' in them. Fix 'emerge -s' filesize lookups to use a new
924 function finddigest() from dbapi.
925
926 20 May 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emergehelp.py: Updated.
927
928 20 May 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> etc-update: Small
929 fixups for pager issues. Made the nothing-to-do exit message 'happier'.
930
931 20 May 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> extra-functions.sh:
932 Beat the debian-utils requirement out of the functions. Prefers them,
933 but falls back to already-existing tools otherwise.
934
935 20 May 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> fixpackages: 75%
936 overhaul to match the new handling of update code.
937
938 20 May 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> quickpkg: Understands
939 "--help" as an option now.
940
941 20 May 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> man/*: Simple updates.
942
943 20 May 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: fetch()
944 now calculates md5sums when doing a fetchonly. finddigest() added for
945 finding digests -- gets overlay digests if existing. Binary packages
946 are only updated when explicitly requested via fixpackages as a command
947 or a FEATURES setting. Clear the dircache after portage initializes to
948 reduce memory consumption.
949
950 *portage-2.0.48_pre6 (12 Apr 2003): General cleanups and fixes.
951
952 12 May 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Additions
953 to better handle overlay ebuilds with regard to metadata cache. aux_get
954 calls findname2() which returns (location,in_overlay) -- findname() is
955 a wrapper for findname2(). Extra debugging fixes for findname() issues.
956
957 12 May 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: Code
958 cleanups and a chgrp/chown pass to move all portage-owned files to
959 root ownership -- Two pass to leave specific-group and specific-owner
960 settings alone.
961
962 12 May 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: code cleanups
963 and comment touchups.
964
965 12 May 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emergehelp.py: Updates
966 for --debug, --digest, and --skipfirst.
967
968 12 May 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> g-cpan.pl: Added more
969 arches to the KEYWORDS. Made it copy files back to distfiles.
970
971 12 May 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> prepstrip: Removed ${D}
972 from the outputted filenames during stripping.
973
974 12 May 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> man/* cnf/*:
975 documentation updates.
976
977 *portage-2.0.48_pre5 (29 Apr 2003): Cleanups and polish.
978
979 29 Apr 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Another
980 typo fix.
981
982 *portage-2.0.48_pre4 (28 Apr 2003): Cleanups and polish.
983
984 28 Apr 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Quick fix
985 for a traceback/typo in the 'emerge -C' code.
986
987 *portage-2.0.48_pre3 (28 Apr 2003): Cleanups and polish.
988
989 28 Apr 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: listdir()
990 now takes care of non-existance errors instead of propagating them --- can
991 take EmptyOnError=1 as a param to return [] instead of None. All calls to
992 portage's listdir() have been updated to the new conventions. listdir()
993 ignores .# files from cvs now when ignorecvs=1 is set. Fixes for another
994 world-depleting bug. If findname() is passed a virtual, it now informs
995 the user to report a bug, instead of weird tracebacks. Added code in
996 dblink::unmerge() to remove stale virtual entries when set under trimworld.
997
998 28 Apr 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> etc-update: enabled the
999 diff pager again.
1000
1001 28 Apr 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: --changelog
1002 implies --pretend. Spelling fixes. Added --skipfirst to allow the first
1003 package in a resume operation to be skipped over --- allows -e to rebuild
1004 almost everything, even under weird circumstances. Located another missed
1005 world-file-depleting bug in unmerge() calls. Included a patch to fix an
1006 off-by-one bug in depclean.
1007
1008 27 Apr 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Fix for
1009 listdir() running on a non-existant dir -- returns None. Sets generated
1010 files to the portage group -- Manifest & digests. Some coloring additions.
1011 Handling of 'strict' features added. TEMPORARY addition of 'manifest' USE
1012 flag so this can go mainstream now. Fixes in doebuild() to get unmerge
1013 working again for ebuild. Debug code added to findname to help figuring
1014 out the seemingly random tracebacks -- suspect is pkgsplit(). Unmasking
1015 code for package.mask added in -- works just like mask, and can override
1016 specific versions or ranges -- One per line: /etc/portage/package.unmask.
1017 Security fix for python cPickle code -- mtimedb could create arbitrary
1018 execution of code bug. Global update notices/info. Fixes for loops over
1019 listdir() that depended upon raised errors to determine code flow.
1020
1021 27 Apr 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> cvstree.py: Added in
1022 'removed' status checks.
1023
1024 27 Apr 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> repoman: Added in more
1025 cvs checks. /space/cvsroot is now complained about.
1026
1027 27 Apr 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: Added in
1028 PORTAGE_CALLER support to identify it as a 'do_update()' candidate.
1029
1030 27 Apr 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> dodoc: Check sizes to
1031 prevent 0 byte files from being added.
1032
1033 *portage-2.0.48_pre2 (10 Apr 2003): Digests & Repoman
1034
1035 16 Apr 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> repoman: Added CVS/Root
1036 checks to ensure Manifests will be correct. Fixed local use-flag bug.
1037 Commented out the no-stable code, as it can't be implemented well as is.
1038
1039 16 Apr 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> prepstrip: Fixed a
1040 problem where files were not being stripped.
1041
1042 16 Apr 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: Added in
1043 a call to 'make -n' when under the --debug flag.
1044
1045 *portage-2.0.48_pre1 (10 Apr 2003): Digests & Repoman
1046
1047 10 Apr 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> prepstrip: fix it so
1048 that it actually strips and provides reasonable info.
1049
1050 10 Apr 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> repoman: Added short
1051 option for pretend. Added pretend capability to the majority of the
1052 commit code. Bug fix for local IUSE code. Added in support for removed
1053 cvs files.
1054
1055 10 Apr 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Changed
1056 'manifest' to 'Manifest'. Removed the requirement that Manifests exist --
1057 complain about it, but only die if 'strict' is set.
1058
1059 *portage-2.0.47-r15 (09 Apr 2003): New digests/manifests, touchups.
1060
1061 09 Apr 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> bin/*: Fixes for Cross-
1062 compiling.
1063
1064 09 Apr 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> repoman: Quick touchups
1065 in the category- and repository-level manifest calls.
1066
1067 09 Apr 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> cnf/*: Added/sync'd
1068 PORTAGE_NICENESS.
1069
1070 09 Apr 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Fixed hole
1071 in the listdir code that occured on cache expiration in the -r14 changes.
1072
1073 *portage-2.0.47-r14 (09 Apr 2003):
1074
1075 09 Apr 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> bin/*: Removed DEBUGBUILD
1076 in favor of FEATURES/RESTRICT settings of nostrip.
1077
1078 09 Apr 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild: Removed root
1079 restriction so that digests can be made as non-root.
1080
1081 09 Apr 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: Added niceness
1082
1083 09 Apr 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> repoman: Added the
1084 nostable/allmasked check in. Small cleanups. Move to 'manifests' instead
1085 of enhanced digests. Added filters on $Id and $Header. Fixed commitmsg
1086 and added short options.
1087
1088 09 Apr 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> cvstree.py: More features
1089 added. pathdata() provides dir or file info. isadded() gives cvs status.
1090
1091 09 Apr 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: listdir()
1092 enhancements. Debug removal. Broke up the digest creation functions to
1093 make them a little more generic. Added manifest code into the digest
1094 calls. Moved code in doebuild() around to allow for non-root calls for
1095 devs and repoman. Added 'PORTAGE_CALLER' env var to prevent repeated
1096 running of unnecessary functions.
1097
1098 *portage-2.0.47-r13 (02 Apr 2003): Fixes & Security -- Repoman+Digests
1099
1100 02 Apr 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: Added debug to
1101 the dep selection code in depgraph.
1102
1103 02 Apr 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> cvstree.py: Added new
1104 module to handle cvs information without having to ask 'cvs status' many
1105 times to determine file locations.
1106
1107 02 Apr 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> repoman: Major fix ups
1108 to ease the introduction of enhanced digests. Intelligent cvs queries
1109 and use of the new cvstree module for information about files in the tree.
1110 Auto-digests, auto-fetches trivial cvs changes, detects changelogs that
1111 exist but have not been added to cvs, and detects '*' in KEYWORDS.
1112
1113 02 Apr 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> *: A typo fix or two.
1114 prepstrip: fixup for sed's issues with '\000' (made it \001).
1115
1116 *portage-2.0.47-r12 (27 Mar 2003): Fixes & Security -- Repoman+Digests
1117
1118 27 Mar 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Moved all
1119 initialization error messages to stderr.write() calls so that the output
1120 doesn't get mixed will called data. Added a warning about not being in
1121 the portage group. Color touchups. Digest path fixups.
1122
1123 27 Mar 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> repoman: Significant
1124 additions to the commit code to nicely handle the changes for enhanced
1125 digests. Added --commitmsg and --commitmsgfile flags to allow easier
1126 scripting. Added a REPOMAN environment variable to prevent portage from
1127 running do_updates(). Added 'grouplist' which makes groupings of subparts
1128 from a list of parts. Added do* functions to manage the recursion into
1129 the dirs of the repository.
1130
1131 27 Mar 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> xpak.py: Change from
1132 lstat to stat... We're not concerned with links. Return 0 on not found.
1133
1134 27 Mar 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portageq: added new
1135 functions: best_visible, mass_best_visible, all_best_visible.
1136
1137 27 Mar 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: Added '--digest'
1138 to force recreation of digests from the command line. Fixed portage version
1139 comparisions for the 'update portage please' notices.
1140
1141 27 Mar 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: Added an
1142 extra rm of the 'successful' file.
1143
1144 26 Mar 2003; Alain Penders <alain@gentoo.org> portageq: added
1145 mass_best_version method to help GUIs resolve best versions.
1146
1147 *portage-2.0.47-r11 (22 Mar 2003): Fixes & Security -- Winding up 2.0 series.
1148
1149 22 Mar 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: listdir()
1150 now is capable of recursive calls and listing only files. Used in new
1151 additions to digestgen() and digestcheck() for ebuilds and files/* --
1152 listdir(dir,recursive=0,filesonly=0). Digests now must contain all files
1153 from files/ and also the ebuild -- non-archives are prefixed with '/'.
1154 Full tbz2 fixes are now implemented... They can take a while to perform
1155 so status thingies are provided. update_ents() provides a batch-update
1156 as it would take rediculous amounts of time otherwise.
1157
1158 22 Mar 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> : fixpackages calls
1159 portageexit() to save the mtimedb state so it actually works. :)
1160
1161 22 Mar 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: Added
1162 'xtermTitle' calls to emergelog to set the title during phases of merging.
1163 Added more emergelog calls to provide more specific information.
1164
1165 22 Mar 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> : Added two scripts to
1166 aid portage. 'fixdbentries' takes (old, new, path) and does an inteligent
1167 sed on all the db entries that should be changed. Used by global moves and
1168 in the tbz2 fixes. 'fixpackages' expires the updates timestamp and reloads
1169 portage to force do_updates() to run. Added missing Header lines.
1170
1171 22 Mar 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> xpak.py: Correct off-by-8
1172 bug in last commit. infosize does not contain the full size... Offset
1173 begins _after_ the marker -- Added xpaksize for complete offset from EOF.
1174
1175 22 Mar 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Fix for
1176 die-on-wheel-group-missing bug. The logfiles don't cause the counter
1177 to be incremented and now match the merged package's COUNTER value.
1178 get_counter_tick_core(root) does not increment the counter. Sandbox is
1179 now working in all enabled cases, instead of just usersandbox. /var/db
1180 and binaries (assuming they are RW) are now updated to contain the proper
1181 info --- Added a 'fixdbentries' script to perform the updates to the data,
1182 and added a 'move_ent' function to class binarytree (not fakedbapi). Added
1183 a 'ebuild does not exist' error for the case of ebuilds in a wrongly named
1184 directory. Added a notice for invalid tbz2's. Removed the 'make.defaults'
1185 missing notice :-/. Duplicated the bintree creation so that it would be
1186 available for do_update(). Catch when 'updates' is missing from mtimedb.
1187
1188 22 Mar 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> output.py: Added xterm
1189 title bar function to set the titles... xtermTitle(mystring). Only set
1190 if using color and terminal is [axE]term.
1191
1192 22 Mar 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> repoman: Additions
1193 courtesy of Gerk and Vladamir... Checks all portage variables. Runs
1194 a check against invalid (but still parsable) syntax errors in names.
1195 Checks for invalid IUSE from use.desc and use.local.desc. Checks that
1196 licenses are valid. Checks for legal keywords with a default set or
1197 keywords.desc, if available. 'missingvar' tests moved to aux_get() calls.
1198
1199 22 Mar 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> prepstrip: Added test
1200 to allow cross-compile-stripping to work properly. Rewrite the script to
1201 be whitespace-aware and recursively process directories at level 1.
1202
1203 22 Mar 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> prepallstrip: Removed
1204 all code from this script and made it a call to "prepstrip $D".
1205
1206 22 Mar 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> g-cpan.pl: Add in chomps
1207 for the portageq calls.
1208
1209 22 Mar 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: Allow
1210 --fetchonly of block'd packages.
1211
1212 22 Mar 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: Cleanups and
1213 corrections for sandbox which has been disabled and broken for a couple
1214 revisions now. use_{enable,with} die messages removed as they are in sub-
1215 shells when used and won't kill the merge --- Moved to echo >&2.
1216
1217 21 Mar 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> xpak.py: Updates to make
1218 the xpak code self-sustaining. Added basic documentation to the functions
1219 and a description of the format in the comments at the top of the module.
1220
1221 *portage-2.0.47-r10 (13 Mar 2003): Fixes -- Winding up 2.0 series.
1222
1223 13 Mar 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Less strict
1224 check of permissions when fixing permissions for userpriv -- only requires
1225 02070 and group portage instead of 02770 for check.
1226
1227 13 Mar 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> g-cpan.pl: Fix to the
1228 call to portageq.
1229
1230 13 Mar 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> etc-update: Fix for
1231 deleted files in a CONFIG_PROTECT situation.
1232
1233 13 Mar 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: fix for keepwork
1234 and keeptemp ** MUST ENSURE THAT CLEAN CLEANS BEFORE A FULL MERGE.
1235
1236 12 Mar 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: Added more
1237 conditions on rsync -- Proper error detection. Rsync failures will not
1238 cause a cache regeneration. Portage no longer considers masked portages
1239 candidates for 'An update to portage'.
1240
1241 *portage-2.0.47-r9 (10 Mar 2003): Fixes -- cvs-src, ebuild.sh, repoman
1242
1243 10 Mar 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> make.conf*: Adjusted
1244 the LOGDIR message and change the default location to /var/log/portage.
1245
1246 10 Mar 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> repoman: One more fix
1247 for the PORTDIR setting -- '/usr/portage' was matching '/usr/portage.cvs'.
1248
1249 10 Mar 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> etc-update: Added the
1250 capability to automerge all files in the list -- with out without prompts.
1251
1252 10 Mar 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: Added messages
1253 on failure to create a depgraph -- Helps with bad DEPEND detection. Made
1254 'emerge sync' stop if it fails, and not update cache.
1255
1256 10 Mar 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: added an
1257 external extra_functions.sh file with extra functions for portage --
1258 it is flag-o-matic and pieces of eutils presently. Removed libdir/incdir
1259 from einstall(). Added 'keepwork' to keep the source code after a package
1260 is merged. Removed the 'local' declaration of ROOT in dyn_install() --
1261 this fixes has_version in src_install(). Fixed the sourcing of environment
1262 so that variables are peristent across stages of a merge. Removed the
1263 SANDBOX vars from the environment file, as that upsets SANDBOX.
1264
1265 10 Mar 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Fixes to
1266 permission problems with cvs-src and ccache (removed nested try's). Log
1267 counter fix -- One log per package now.
1268
1269 *portage-2.0.47-r8 (02 Mar 2003): Fixes -- cvs-src, ebuild.sh, repoman
1270
1271 02 Mar 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> *: Fixes to eclass
1272 errors and messages -- raise on not found. emerge --debug works for
1273 ebuilds with syntax errors now -- needs better implimentation though,
1274 debug=0 in params can't be used due to scope limits.
1275
1276 28 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> *: reorg ebuild.sh again
1277 to ensure that aliases are expanded properly. Repoman now determines the
1278 proper PORTDIR to set when loading portage to scan the cvs tree. portage.py
1279 fixes for cvs-src permission problems with userpriv.
1280
1281 *portage-2.0.47-r7 (27 Feb 2003): Quick fix for eerror() problem.
1282
1283 *portage-2.0.47-r6 (26 Feb 2003): Drop deprecated warnings for new syntax.
1284
1285 26 Feb 2003; Alain Penders <alain@gentoo.org> emerge: Drop deprecated
1286 warnings for new syntax. Don't make people switch to the new syntax
1287 until it's agreed on by everyone.
1288
1289 *portage-2.0.47-r5 (26 Feb 2003): Wicked Fast, BugFree v3.1, UserPriv
1290
1291 26 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> *: Update docs and help
1292 again to drop --system and --world, and pull them from emerge's command
1293 line. General cleanups.
1294
1295 26 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge/portage.py: Fixes
1296 to the cache directory permissions -- all dirs are properly owned by group
1297 portage now. Add CCACHE_SIZE setting so we set a value for ccache. If the
1298 dirs are set to the wrong perms, make sure they get changed recursively.
1299
1300 26 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: Rearraged the
1301 code blocks so that they are easier to follow -- no more code in between
1302 functions. All code follows function definitions now.
1303
1304 *portage-2.0.47-r4 (25 Feb 2003): Wicked Fast, BugFree v3, UserPriv
1305
1306 25 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> *: Update docs and help
1307 to match the deprecation of actions without '--' preceding them.
1308
1309 25 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Message
1310 updates. Fix secpass for portage user. Set PORTAGE_GID for ebuild.sh to
1311 use regardless of GID in use (wheel/portage). Only try and delete things
1312 in PORTAGE_TMPDIR if we have perms to do it... see secpass note. Moved the
1313 cachedir creation after settings in created so that we can use spawn instead
1314 of system for the calls to 'chown/chmod -R'. Fix the note on make.defaults.
1315 Fix for the 404 catcher in the fetch code.
1316
1317 25 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: Move all actions
1318 into '--action' form -- Notify of deprecated usages. Moved the functions
1319 from the top of emerge down below the command line parser for readability.
1320 Kill FEATURES=noauto if we're running emerge -- it can break things. Make
1321 -U imply -u so people aren't confused. --debug now enables all debug
1322 variables in portage. Fix wheel/portage group requirements messages. Get
1323 the current portage version when doing rsync via the portage tree's files
1324 and not the loaded cache so that it is aware of changes immediately instead
1325 of the next run.
1326
1327 25 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: Try to change
1328 to good a good path at the start of the ebuild to prevent operations from
1329 happening in places like home. After the ebuild's install phase, check to
1330 see if any unsafe perm combo's exist and die if they do. Fix permissions
1331 on the cachedir as we're changing them to root:portage. &> on environment
1332 file prevented it from actually creating the file -- changed to 2>. Change
1333 'true' to 'exit 0' to be a bit more explicit about what we're doing.
1334
1335 24 Feb 2003; Alain Penders <alain@gentoo.org> repoman: Added nested/sub-shell
1336 die testing.
1337
1338 23 Feb 2003; Alain Penders <alain@gentoo.org>: Added bin/portageq tool to
1339 provide access to portage internal information without using APIs that
1340 are changing. All tools that currently access portage information by
1341 importing portage.py and poking around in it should switch to using this
1342 tool instead. Changed some tools in bin/ to use it, so those won't break
1343 either.
1344
1345 *portage-2.0.47-r3 (17 Feb 2003): Wicked Fast, BugFree v2, UserPriv
1346
1347 22 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> bin/: added dispatch-conf
1348 and db-fix.pl to the bins. Looking at dispatch-conf to replace etc-update
1349 written by Jeremy Wohl (bug 14079). db-fix.pl is a rescue tool that Blizzy
1350 wrote up to recreate/repair counter files in the DB -- shouldn't be needed
1351 anymore as portage fixes the counter at every load of the counter, but we
1352 will hang on to it just in case.
1353
1354 22 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: moved the
1355 wheelgid references to portage_gid references. Wheel is being deprecated.
1356 Added notice to baselayout message that group portage controls everything
1357 now. Killed the BASH_ENV settings -- moved the reference to /etc/portage/
1358 in case it's desired in some way -- This fixes AROUND ONE HUNDRED reports
1359 on 2.0.47-r2. Try/catch invalid tbz2's -- should fix a couple bad tarball
1360 bugs. Make the prelink call spawn'd without sandbox. buildpkg/userpriv
1361 fix via actionmap (Jasmin Buchert; bug 16106).
1362
1363 22 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: --upgradeonly
1364 added from jrray's patch; added some slot handling. --deep got a short
1365 flag 'D'. 'info' can be run by non-root. '--quiet' kills all but package
1366 names on searches. Basic slot detection added to the pretend output so
1367 that it doesn't always say downgrade. Ignore block list when fetching.
1368 Can use RSYNC_EXCLUDEFROM to select a from for rsync to --exclude-from;
1369 (Michael Sterrett; Bug 15882). 'emerge rsync' deletes the dbcachedir
1370 before it begins updates. Catch exceptions during rsync cache regen.
1371
1372 22 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: General fixes
1373 to the spelling of things. 'cd $PORT_TMPDIR' corrected to the actual vars
1374 name. Stripping distcc from PATH if it is there before portage sets it.
1375 Same with ccache. If we try to compile with out unpacking, complain. Make
1376 sure to chown files to user portage.
1377
1378 22 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> cnf/*: CFLAGS notes,
1379 pentium4 breaks things. Added more descriptions for FEATURES. Added
1380 RSYNC_EXCLUDEFROM description.
1381
1382 22 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> *: Updates to the
1383 copyright headers.
1384
1385 *portage-2.0.47-r2 (17 Feb 2003): Wicked Fast, BugFree, UserPriv
1386
1387 18 Feb 2003; Alain Penders <alain@gentoo.org> portage-2.0.47-r2.ebuild:
1388 If $PORTAGE_TEST is set, skip the beeps/delay messages. Needed to make
1389 the regression test scripts bearable :-)
1390
1391 17 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Fixed the
1392 depcache code once again -- ebuild and cache were never set to the same
1393 mtimes. Removed last os.system() call.
1394
1395 17 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> repoman: catdir fix.
1396 Added 'emerge-webrsync' from gentoolkit so users can use snapshots on
1397 initial installs.
1398
1399 17 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emergehelp.py: Updated
1400 it to the current calls and conventions. Added comments about etc-update
1401 and emerge-webrsync.
1402
1403 17 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: Changed the
1404 search code around to use compiled re's instead of .lower() searches.
1405 Trivial touchups in spacing. Only write worldfile if not --pretend. Fix
1406 losing-packages-to-be-merged during merge bug. Allow options to change
1407 in a --resume call so that --buildpkg and such may be added.
1408
1409 17 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: Added a
1410 PREROOTPATH to allow special paths to be added prior to root and ebuild's
1411 required pathes. ${S} is now generated prior to sourcing an ebuild so
1412 that it is available in the ebuild at source-time, as opposed to in the
1413 phases.
1414
1415 *portage-2.0.47-r1 (16 Feb 2003): Wicked Fast + UserPriv
1416
1417 16 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Changed a
1418 few os.system calls to spawn calls. Added userpriv in features check to
1419 spawn. HOME is now placed in BUILD_PREFIX/homedir when userpriv is enabled.
1420 Valid command for doebuild() moved to the top of the function. Reorganized
1421 the directory creation code in doebuild(). HOME is cleaned for every merge
1422 if in userpriv. LOG_COUNTER fix for the per-ebuild logs -- Only one value
1423 is used per $PF now.
1424
1425 16 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: Adjusted options
1426 to remove --autoclean and make it on-by-default unless killed in FEATURES
1427 with 'noclean'. Removed debug for --resume. Added RSYNC_TIMEOUT as some
1428 dialup and other users are experiencing problems with rsync never finishing
1429 a connection. Added check at the end of an rsync to notify the user when
1430 a new version of portage is available. Added --pretend capability/fix to
1431 the --resume code. No resume data and a --resume is no longer a failure.
1432
1433 16 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: Updates to
1434 logic of ${T}/successful handling to allow proper cleaning. dyn_clean()
1435 will do a recursive dir removal after cleaning specific files. Recursive
1436 chown removed. CCACHE_DIR handled in portage.py now. Removed a few comments
1437 and unnecessary checks.
1438
1439 16 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> cnf/*: added comments
1440 on FEATURES=noclean,noauto,userpriv,usersandbox
1441
1442 15 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: Alain changed
1443 the .config() call in the search class to a .settings[] -- Speedup.
1444
1445 14 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Added
1446 resume to mtimedbkeys.
1447
1448 14 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: --columns
1449 flag to support column output in --pretend. --resume support added
1450 to restart portage with the package list with which it stopped -- data
1451 is stored in mtimedb. Added '--verbose' to 'emerge info' to display
1452 all variables in settings.
1453
1454 13 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: Fix to
1455 distcc and ccache to prevent them from calling themselves if they
1456 catch themselves in the path -- double path problem.
1457
1458 13 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Fixes to
1459 the aux_get() code for metacache updates to eclass deps. Debug output
1460 removal.
1461
1462 13 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: More fixes
1463 to the calls to aux_get() for metacache code. Rearranged the option and
1464 action arrays. Added --nospinner flag.
1465
1466 13 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: Reorg of flags.
1467 Addition of --noconfmem to prevent portage from yanking already-merged
1468 config files. Extra message in --version about missing gcc and sourcing
1469 /etc/profile to get it. Yanked the majority of the rsync cachedb update
1470 code -- Moved it to aux_get.
1471
1472 13 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Typo fixes.
1473 aux_get() now has a metacachedb param for using metadata cache over the
1474 initial call to doebuild() -- Should speed up rsync users regen time.
1475 Added support for --noconfmem via settings["NOCONFMEM"] in treewalk().
1476 Added sys.exit(1) on failure to move files during merge. Comment
1477 realignment.
1478
1479 11 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Fix the
1480 depcache code by adding in a missing stat call after regeneration.
1481 Call portageexit() in exithandler() so that mtimedb gets written out
1482 on cancelled runs. Add in --quiet option. Currently only kills the
1483 processing messages on emerge regen.
1484
1485 11 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: Fix the
1486 eclass code to remove the double inherits cause by eclasses managing
1487 that on their own.
1488
1489 *portage-2.0.46-r12 (07 Feb 2003): Fixups
1490
1491 07 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Move
1492 logdir check/generation code so that it's created before 'clean'. Fix
1493 the usemask/archkeys bug and a related bug with the var enabled. Fix
1494 to movefile() code to ensure symlinks are handled properly.
1495
1496 07 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: Make per-
1497 ebuild logs use the counter to get a chronological list instead of a
1498 timestamp based one.
1499
1500 07 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: If a package
1501 is requested to be updated but is not merged, still add it to world.
1502
1503 07 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> *: Update to help.
1504 Mostly comments on --verbose. Clarification on make.conf* mirrorselect.
1505
1506 *portage-2.0.46-r11 (04 Feb 2003): Fixups
1507
1508 04 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: distcc
1509 fixups along with ccache fixups from the bug 13897 effort. Added more
1510 varaibles to the build data output. Allow CC/CXX to be set if they are
1511 not set in environment.
1512
1513 04 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Removed an
1514 unnecessary call to os.unlink() in movefile that resulted in it failing
1515 when moving files across devices. HTML 404 catcher -- if the distfile is
1516 a reasonable size, and it's got <title>.*(not found|404).*</title> in it
1517 it will be deleted and the next mirror persued.
1518
1519 *portage-2.0.46-r10 (03 Feb 2003): Feature/Function Cleanups
1520
1521 03 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Added
1522 quotes to fallback checksum code to ensure it works on space-containing
1523 filenames. Error message added in writedict. Worldfile-depleeting bug
1524 fixed -- 'emerge -e world'+AUTOCLEAN would cause every package in world
1525 to be removed from the worldfile to be removed.
1526
1527 03 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> make.conf: updated the
1528 commentary about AUTOCLEAN.
1529
1530 03 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> etc-update: Added in
1531 automerge functionality for trivial changes. Comments and whitespace
1532 are just merged without asking when it's enabled.
1533
1534 03 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: redundant cmd
1535 line flags warning. Show enabled/disabled USE flags on -vp (Masatomo
1536 Nakano). Missing changelog fix for --changelog. Added an rsync timeout
1537 of 60 seconds and a message on fail due to timeout.
1538
1539 03 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: CC/CXX fix
1540 to override profile.env settings. FEATURES=distcc support to get past
1541 profile.env's CC settings/lockdown. If CBUILD is defined, it is appended
1542 to econf's output in a --build= statement. Added .unpacked marker to
1543 the unpack code to ensure a proper unpack phase.
1544
1545 01 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Adjusted
1546 the arch.list code to be a general masking setup. /etc/make.profile/
1547 and /etc/portage/ have use.mask files that are concatenated. On fetch,
1548 if downloader reports failure, then check that filesize<digestfilesize
1549 and continue onto the next mirror before dying.
1550
1551 27 Jan 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh/portage.py:
1552 eclass fixups for newdepend issues where newdepend operates on RDEPEND
1553 prior to it being set to default by ebuild.sh. Repoman fix for multi-
1554 arch failures by excluding /usr/portage/profiles/arch.list entries from
1555 consideration, excluding $ARCH.
1556
1557 *portage-2.0.46-r9 (14 Jan 2003): portage restart fix
1558 15 Jan 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: fixed the
1559 missing tabs from the cvs diff backport.
1560
1561 *portage-2.0.46-r8 (14 Jan 2003): touchup KV{,ERS} for public stable
1562
1563 *portage-2.0.46-r7 (14 Jan 2003): Backport from cvs and fixes.
1564 portage-2.0.46* :: EXCUDES ALL PORTIONS RELATING SPECIFICALLY TO USERPRIV
1565
1566 14 Jan 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Persistant
1567 KV and KVERS on depend calls. Sandbox violation of do_upgrade() caught.
1568
1569 14 Jan 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: --buildpkg
1570 touchups and forward porting of some of 2.0.46-r6. Restart on -r0/proper
1571 versions of portage due to VERSION not matching pkgsplit output fixed.
1572
1573 14 Jan 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: 20% speedup
1574 in dep generation by removing all external app calls. Moved KVERS to
1575 portage to make it persistent during dep calls. Other code moved into
1576 conditionals based on $*!=depend. chmod's swaped with umask.
1577
1578 11 Jan 2003; Jack Morgan <jmorgan@gentoo.org> cnf/make.conf.sparc:
1579 updated make.conf.sparc to add CFLAGS for sparc32 and sparc64
1580
1581 08 Jan 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> bin/g-cpan.pl:
1582 Added from bug 3450 -- Creates and merges perl module ebuilds on-the-fly

1590
1591 06 Jan 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py:
1592 Forced HOME to BUILD_PREFIX regardless of user. Added in a 'rm -Rf' notice
1593 to readonly-fs/Full-Disk notices. Disabled the usepkg on buildpkg function
1594 of portage. digraph.hasallzeros() added -- Determines if tree is zero depth.
1595
1596 06 Jan 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> cnf/*: Added in the
1597 PORT_LOGDIR option and description. Also added a GENTOO_MIRRORS section

1599 specify ibiblio. Killed the linefeeds in the sparc conf.
1600
1601 06 Jan 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: options and
1602 actions fixup. Added new short options and long options. --buildpkgonly
1603 now works and restricts the process to deplists of zero depth. Updated
1604 the help for portage, and created a seperate shorthelp function with
1605 the terse, options-only, versions of the regular help. Fixed the env_update
1606 call after --fetchonly runs.
1607
1608 06 Jan 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh:
1609 touchups to the user priv and logging code to kill the invalid user

1621 Support for per-ebuild logging via PORT_LOGDIR variable. ebuild.sh
1622 now can do usermode compiles _and_ maintain the enviroment with a
1623 few minor restrictions like changing portage variables.
1624
1625 *portage-2.0.47_pre3 (02 Jan 2003): Forward port of fixes & New fixes
1626
1627 02 Jan 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge:

1656 Moved the help() to emergehelp.py. prepallman fixup for missed symlinks.
1657 More info provided for portage-user-missing message. FEATURES=sandboxuser
1658 not provides sandbox in compile phase along with userpriv. mtimedb
1659 exception should actually be caught now.
1660
1661 *portage-2.0.47_pre1 (21 Dec 2002): Feature: userpriv compiles
1662
1663 21 Dec 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> *:

1674
1675 18 Dec 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py, emerge:
1676 Traceback fix for blocking packages in the restart check in emerge. Added
1677 missing import for commands in portage.py.

1680
1681 18 Dec 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py:
1682 PRELINK_MASK adds ignore paths for prelink.conf. Error message
1683 adjustments for appearance/readability. auxdbkey changes.
1684
1685 18 Dec 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge:
1686 --changelog displays changelogs of packages on update. gcc version
1687 fix for --version. Missing indent in masked output corrected. Some
1688 color additions. Prelink code removed -- Users can do it instead.
1689
1690 18 Dec 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh:
1691 use_{enable,with}() work now. Rearranged auxdbkeys again.
1692
1693 17 Dec 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org> bin/ebuild.sh:
1694 Regenerate /lib/cpp and /usr/bin/cc in pkg_setup if they are not
1695 files to ease the broken pkg_postrm() some gcc have.
1696
1697 *portage-2.0.46_pre2 (15 Dec 2002): Feature Prerelease: prelink
1698
1699 15 Dec 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge/portage.py:
1700 Fixups. PRELINK_MASK code. 'prelink -af' in post_emerge().

1706
1707 15 Dec 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Counter
1708 fixups. Prelink code.
1709
1710 15 Dec 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> bin/f*: Made them
1711 loop over multiple files instead of just doing one.
1712
1713 13 Dec 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge/portage.py:
1714 Added disabled prelink code. Needs a little more work. Gave portage the
1715 ability to restart on upgrades to the portage version. Ebuilds for prior
1716 versions will intentionally die on upgrade. USE=build disables it so
1717 bootstrap isn't affected.
1718
1719 *portage-2.0.45-r5 (13 Dec 2002): Feature addition: PDEPEND+fixes
1720
1721 13 Dec 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge/portage.py:
1722 Added restart on portage upgrade code and adjusted ebuild to accomplish
1723 this until version matches -r5.
1724
1725 *portage-2.0.45-r4 (11 Dec 2002): Feature addition: PDEPEND
1726
1727 11 Dec 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh/portage.py:
1728 Added [CDEPEND, PDEPEND, REBUILD] to auxdbkeys and updated ebuild.sh.
1729 Prevented autoclean on fetchonly.
1730
1731 11 Dec 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge:
1732 Added support for PDEPEND. Rewrote some dep handling variables for
1733 readability and ease of use.
1734
1735 *portage-2.0.45-r3 (09 Dec 2002): Touchups.
1736
1737 09 Dec 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: Fixed
1738 use_enable() and use_with() so that they actually work -- also don't
1739 have to specify 2nd parameter, 1st is assumed.
1740
1741 09 Dec 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: Added previous
1742 version/downgrade messages to --pretend. Extra message to notify of dep
1743 calculation failure as bad deps can exit portage without error.
1744
1745 09 Dec 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Attempt
1746 at fixing the sandbox-crashes-missing-HOME bug. Added a try/catch around
1747 the virts/'del x' code to prevent tracebacks on boxes without a virtuals
1748 file.
1749
1750 06 Dec 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: Fixed 'xfrom'
1751 variable-used-before-assignment message on masked ebuilds.
1752
1753 06 Dec 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Disabled
1754 writes to DBs when sandbox is enabled.
1755
1756 03 Dec 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: Fixed a
1757 nice bug where python was writing 'L' at the end of long() types for
1758 mtimes.
1759
1760 *portage-2.0.45 (02 Dec 2002): More bug fixes for stable.
1761
1762 02 Dec 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py, output.py:
1763 Added several color options and functions to output.py. 'DO NOT EDIT'
1764 notices added to .env generated profile settings files. Touchups and
1765 nofetch() call for restricted fetches. Moved some file IO code for
1766 SLOTs into a try/catch. { mtimedb fixups. Eclass aux_get() error fix.
1767 aux_get() error fix via try/catch with magically-missing ebuild when
1768 doing stat on it. Enabled full eclass()/inherit code. Added code to
1769 flushmtimedb() entries by key name. } <-- aux_get() fixups. Made
1770 starttime into a long... time.time() is apparently overflowing int().
1771
1772 02 Dec 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> bin/*:
1773 prep*: Fixed missed man pages and corrected loops to be fairly complete
1774 in the included files. quickpkg: Loop to do each in $@ (Peter Sharp).
1775
1776 02 Dec 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge:
1777 Yank '++' from searches and make it '\+\+' so that it works. Reformated
1778 'all ebuilds are masked' message to be a little more obvious. env_update()
1779 AFTER autoclean... not in autoclean -- Fixes ldconfig issues. Typo fixes.
1780
1781 02 Dec 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh:
1782 Added has(), general use()-like function -- 'has this_thing $VAR' returns
1783 shell true or false. Added has_version(), portage call to determine if
1784 a specified DEPEND-atom is installed -- 'has_version ">=mozilla-1.2"'
1785 returns shell true or false. Added best_version(), portage call to
1786 get the best/most-recently-merged version of a DEPEND-atom statement --
1787 'best_version ">=mozilla-1.0"' prints a string. pkg_nofetch() displays
1788 SRC_URIs by default on RESTRICT -- Can be redefined to display custom
1789 messages. die() on unpack() failure added. Courtasy of SpanKY: Added
1790 use_with() and use_enable() for --with-thing and --enable-thing.
1791 'use_with gd libgd' would print --with-libgd if gd was in USE and
1792 --without-libgd if not.
1793
1794 19 Nov 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org> cnf/etc-update.conf:
1795 Add 'menu' config item and note about it needing dev-utils/dialog, as
1796 a lot of users do not know about this nifty feature.
1797
1798 14 Nov 2002; Phil Bordelon <sunflare@gentoo.org> man/emerge.1:
1799 Cleaned up the more recent edits to the man page to more closely
1800 match the previous format, fix various typos, and so on. Expanded
1801 the REPORTING BUGS section, and made the PACKAGE MASKING part of the
1802 NOTES a stand-alone section.
1803
1804 *portage-2.0.44 (11 Nov 2002): bug fixes and 1.2 rescue/install setup
1805
1806 11 Nov 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> *:
1807 bin/*: fixes for spaces-in-filename issues, lots of quotes added. conf/*:
1808 touched up comments and warning. Added RSYNC_RETRIES. ebuild.sh: exit now
1809 reports the failing ebuild's $CATEGORY/$PF. Added EXTRA_ECONF to econf().
1810 emake: added EXTRA_EMAKE. emerge: RSYNC_RETRIES curtasy of Christopher
1811 Sharp. Random comment fixes. portage.py: Random touchups. KV extraction
1812 fixup for new ROOTs. ARCH missing in profile fix. Fix for packages/All
1813 missing dir traceback. INFOPATH/INFODIR fix. Added INFOPATH to specials.
1814 portage.py: Touchups to the mtimedb-touching code. Fixes for the broken
1815 os.path.normpath() leading '//' bug. Added a modified chuck of Phoen][x's
1816 dist size patch.
1817
1818 09 Nov 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py:
1819 Fixups for KV.
1820
1821 08 Nov 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge:
1822 Fix for missing-glibc-bug in --version.
1823
1824 08 Nov 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py:
1825 Fix for cfgdictfile traceback when ROOT != '/'. Fix for missing kernel
1826 headers -- checks usr/src/linux, then /usr/include, then if merging
1827 from sys-kernel ignore error.
1828
1829 07 Nov 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py:
1830 Fix (part 2) for the USE="-*" arch-missing problem.
1831
1832 03 Nov 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py:
1833 eclass() function uses a caching and cPickle storing method to determine
1834 currency of eclass-derived depcache entries. All previous methods are
1835 already removed. eclass_save() is called via store() now. Stripped some
1836 cruft from aux_get(). Error message touchups.
1837
1838 03 Nov 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge:
1839 A couple message touchups.
1840
1841 29 Oct 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge:
1842 Moved the autoclean section under the --pretend check so it doesn't flip
1843 out when running '-f'. Preliminary support for binary-only methods.
1844 --usepkgonly (implies --usepkg) to force errors is binaries don't exist.
1845
1846 27 Oct 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> new*: changed "&&" to "||"
1847 to provide even better protection against mis-use of these commands.
1848
1849 *portage-2.0.43 (27 Oct 2002): Bug fix release
1850
1851 27 Oct 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge:
1852 AUTOCLEAN="yes" on by default. Added in a clean phase after the merge
1853 phase so clashing library versions do not remain installed when ldconfig
1854 is run. This should close up the symlinks-being-removed bugs.
1855
1856 27 Oct 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> cnf/*:
1857 Miscelaneous typo fixes. Added PORTDIR_OVERLAY description in make.conf.
1858
1859 26 Oct 2002; J Robert Ray <jrray@gentoo.org> portage.py:
1860 Don't act like the download failed if after successfully downloading
1861 a file its size doesn't match the file size in the digest. Treat
1862 this as a mismatched digest condition instead.
1863
1864 26 Oct 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py:
1865 Reversed the defaults on env_update() so it does a full ldconfig instead
1866 of a non-symlink ldconfig. Fixed the typo in the 'invalid conf' notices.
1867
1868 *portage-2.0.42 (24 Oct 2002): Bug fix release
1869
1870 24 Oct 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> make.defaults.5:
1871 Removed this file. It is horribly out of date and completely
1872 wrong to boot. Users shouldn't be modifying the 3 lines in this file
1873 anyway. They are obvious if you understand conf and defaults.
1874
1875 24 Oct 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge:
1876 Added missing return statements to select_dep() that caused unmet packages
1877 to be ignored. Touchups to 'emerge info' and 'emerge --version' output.
1878 Added --delete to --delete-after so that it actually deletes in rsync.
1879
1880 24 Oct 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py:
1881 Warning touchups. Replaced constants (9) to index("INHERITED").
1882
1883 23 Oct 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> bin/new*:
1884 Fix for "running as a root user" bug... code does 'rm -rf /' if
1885 variables aren't defined in environment... That's a bad thing.
1886
1887 23 Oct 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py:
1888 Possible fix for the aux_get() issues and IUSE.
1889
1890 22 Oct 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py:
1891 noauto got lost in some weird conflicts of .38, added it back.
1892
1893 22 Oct 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge:
1894 Primitive logging via emergelog(). countdown(N,str) function does N second
1895 countdowns of the action 'str'. Error messages on dependency traceback
1896 via try/except on select_dep(). Removed the 'unavailable' warning. Message
1897 updates. Added logging of basic actions to /var/log/emerge.log. Added
1898 package/to-go counter. 'emerge info' displays a number of useful variables
1899 that is good for bug reports.
1900
1901 22 Oct 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> prepallstrip:
1902 Bug 9508, fix for MSB architectures strip. Previous check assumed only
1903 LSB objects could/should be stripped. (*LSB -> *SB) [Joky@#gentoo-sparc]
1904
1905 *portage-2.0.41 (20 Oct 2002): Bug fix release
1906
1907 20 Oct 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py:
1908 stickies=[] lists the variables that will be kept/used as sticky vars,
1909 not yet implimented. Fixed several relative symlink bugs by adding
1910 abssymlink() to portage to determine real/absolute targets. env_update()
1911 modified to fix bug 9308 symlinks bug. Bug 8348, request for error messages
1912 instead of tracebacks/dies on parse errors, now caught on a per file basis
1913 for system config files, includes descriptive messages. Fix for missing
1914 profile traceback in new prepend'd-arch code. Typo fixes in symlink code.
1915 DISABLED 'KEYWORD="" == available' code, DEFAULT IS MASKED NOW. Major
1916 update to masking code, CONFIG_PROTECT can be layered with _MASKs, and
1917 update_protect() now sets the self.protect* variables. Condensed and
1918 reordered the unmerge code, now checks existance, cfgprotect, then mtimes.
1919
1920 20 Oct 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge:
1921 Bug 8767: Added 'buildpkg' to FEATURES to specify always-buildpkg.
1922 Updated the --version output to display profile and gcc version.
1923 Bug 8083: Eliminate spinner when terminal is not a tty. Bug 7688:
1924 fixed search vs. searchdesc differences by adding 'cat/pack' split.
1925 Bug 9308: Symlinks were being killed by ldconfig, fixed by changing
1926 how/when ldconfig was allowed to set symlinks. rsync command touchups,
1927 --delete-after so that a failed rsync won't leave a user
1928 without/with-few packages in portage. More warnings to depclean.
1929
1930 20 Oct 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh:
1931 Added die to gzip in unpack()
1932
1933 20 Oct 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> make.conf*:
1934 Added in useful variables and descriptions+warnings of their uses.
1935
1936 20 Oct 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> make.globals*:
1937 Added in large "do not edit" message.
1938
1939 16 Oct 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py:
1940 Fixed an mtimes issue. --update on a package might yank non-cfgprot
1941 files during the clean-phase because they didn't have mtimes updated.
1942
1943 15 Oct 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py:
1944 Added 'IUSE' to the auxdbkey list. Fixed random aux_get() errors
1945 caused by random empty files in the dep cache.
1946
1947 15 Oct 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh
1948 Actually committed the --host portion of econf.
1949
1950 15 Oct 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org> portage.py, missingos.c:
1951 Remove testsandbox.sh, and comment code in portage.py that still
1952 used it to no real use. Add another '\' to the 'missingos_mknod__doc__'
1953 string in src/python-missingos/missingos.c to fix failure with gcc-3.3.
1954
1955 *portage-2.0.40 (13 Sep 2002): Bug fix release
1956
1957 15 Oct 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py, emerge:
1958 emerge depclean -- Removes all packages that are not explicitly or
1959 dependency merged.
1960
1961 15 Oct 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh:
1962 depend now prints IUSE. Doesn't do anything with it yet.
1963 unpack() -- unzip silently overwrites files ().
1964 econf() -- now specifies '--host=${CHOST}'
1965
1966 15 Oct 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> make.globals:
1967 Touch ups + warning.
1968
1969 15 Oct 2002; Brandon Low <lostlogic@gentoo.org> etc-update:
1970 Make etc-update find all the same CONFIG_PROTECT files as portage
1971 by importing it's settings from portage.
1972
1973 *portage-2.0.39 (13 Sep 2002): Bug fix release
1974
1975 13 Oct 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py:
1976 Bug 5926 -- If the fetchonly AND pretend flags are specified, then
1977 portage should give a list of all the SRC_URIs so that they can be
1978 downloaded or sent into another app. Made sandbox display name in
1979 'ps' as '[$PF] sandbox'.
1980
1981 13 Oct 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge:
1982 Bug 5926 -- See portage.py for today. (emerge -pf)
1983 Typo fixes.
1984
1985 13 Oct 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh:
1986 Added -q to unzip to make it quiet like the others.
1987 Bug 6033 -- Fix for infinate loop in eclasses in portage overlay.
1988
1989 12 Oct 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: fix for
1990 doebuild() so that our rsync mirror will contain full digests and not just
1991 partial digests for x86.
1992
1993 12 Oct 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge:
1994 Added --progress to rsync. This puts the file progress meters
1995 back on. Users have requested this, and it's not detrimental.
1996 Just creates a lot of output, as the man page says: "It gives
1997 bored users something to look at."
1998
1999 12 Oct 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py:
2000 Bug 6361 -- Added checking on directories to ensure that we can
2001 write to them before we try and traceback. Also added pieces to
2002 functions so that return conditions are propagated back to emerge
2003 so that it actually dies on errors. Message on condition details
2004 restart process.
2005
2006 11 Oct 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> make*globals:
2007 Removed the tomcat configs from CONFIG_PROTECT
2008
2009 11 Oct 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> doman:
2010 Bug 8208 -- Added flags and auto-location support for 'x' manpages.
2011 Added not-an-man-page message.
2012
2013 11 Oct 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> dohtml:
2014 Bug 8208 -- Added 'js' to the include list, and added '-A' as an
2015 append flag. '-a' was a filter-down-to.
2016
2017 11 Oct 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py:
2018 Bug 8964 -- Fix for read-only traceback in digestgen().
2019 Bug 8949 -- Fix for read-only traceback in doebuild()
2020 Bug 8284 -- Prepend ARCH _after_ use order processing. Prevents -*
2021 from killing the ARCH flag. Bug 7596 -- Set an mtime of 0 into
2022 CONTENTS if the file already exists on the FS. Allows the entry
2023 to be in the CONTENTS file. Condensed the protect/protect-mask
2024 code into one function in class dblink. Revised code to allow
2025 multi-level protects and masks.
2026
2027 10 Oct 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge:
2028 Bug 8552 -- typo fixes
2029
2030 10 Oct 2002; Mark Guertin <gerk@gentoo.org> cnf/make.conf.ppc :
2031 Fixed type in reccomended CFLAGS for generic ppc (was 02, corrected
2032 to O2)
2033
2034 09 Oct 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py:
2035 Fixed a bug where files less than 2 characters in /etc/env.d
2036 weren't checked correctly, and tracebacked env_update()
2037
2038 07 Oct 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh:
2039 Also set $TMP, as MDK among distros sets this, and it causes
2040 breakage during bootstrap. This should close bug #8101.
2041
2042 07 Oct 2002; Mark Guertin <gerk@gentoo.org> man/ebuild.5 :
2043 Updated the man page to include missing functions in portage
2044
2045 05 Oct 2002; Mark Guertin <gerk@gentoo.org> cnf/make.conf cnf/make.conf.ppc:
2046 Fixed typo (missing "/") in make.conf and make.conf.ppc, bug #7944
2047
2048 28 Sep 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: remove
2049 deprecated "ld.so" from newdepend.
2050
2051 *portage-2.0.38 (25 Sep 2002): Bug fix release
2052
2053 25 Sep 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: now "emerge world"
2054 and "emerge system" don't replace packages. This closes bug #8282.
2055
2056 21 Sep 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage-2.0.38.ebuild:
2057 Added additional perm check for /var/cache/edb/dep dirs and fixed perm
2058 settings in the ebuild's pkg_postinst(); this should close bug #7719.
2059
2060 21 Sep 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: Added
2061 carpaski's patch to add PF to the sandbox's argv[0], closing bug #8141.
2062
2063 19 Sep 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: tweaked emerge so
2064 that "--pretend" displays don't show "N" all the time.
2065
2066 19 Sep 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: tweaked help to
2067 not list deprecated options.
2068
2069 25 Sep 2002; Maik Schreiber <blizzy@gentoo.org> cnf/make.globals,
2070 cnf/make.globals.ppc: Added /opt/jakarta/tomcat/conf to CONFIG_PROTECT. Note
2071 by drobbins: this will be removed soon when this gets moved to an /etc/env.d
2072 file in the tomcat package.
2073
2074 *portage-2.0.37 (19 Sep 2002): Gentoo Linux 1.4_rc1 version
2075
2076 10 Sep 2002; Mark Guertin <gerk@gentoo.org> cnf/make.conf.ppc : Backed down
2077 CFLAGS from -O3 to -O2 on ppc as -O3 has proven to be unreliable on all
2078 PowerPC-based machines
2079
2080 09 Sep 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: new parameterized
2081 create() engine, security pass fixes ("emerge" as non-root doesn't print
2082 "root access required" but shows help instead), emerge --pretend output fixes
2083 ("to /" lines are dropped and only displayed if installation root != "/".)
2084 New (and currently unofficial and undocumented) "--deep" and "--selective"
2085 options that correspond to their respective create() parameters. Using
2086 "--deep" will enable "deep emerging" -- updating all deps even if the parent
2087 doesn't need updating. The new parametrized create() is also much cleaner
2088 than the previous incarnation.
2089
2090 09 Sep 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: os.chdir() ->
2091 chdir() fix, enhanced fetch() digest corruption handling.
2092
2093 06 Sep 2002; Mark Guertin <gerk@gentoo.org> cnf/make.globals.ppc :
2094 Updated make.globals.ppc to reflect new CFLAGS for 1.4 release
2095
2096 *portage-2.0.36 (04 Sep 2002): Gentoo Linux 1.4_rc1 version
2097
2098 04 Sep 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: "--onlydeps" was
2099 mostly broken since the most recent emerge code restructure. Now fixed,
2100 closing bug #7442.
2101
2102 04 Sep 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> etc-update.conf: added
2103 missing etc-update config file.
2104
2105 04 Sep 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: removed error
2106 detection based on return value for pkg_preinst() and friends when called
2107 from merge() and unmerge(), since the value can be unreliable due to the &&
2108 shell construct, depmod -a returning a non-zero value, etc. Also fixed
2109 env_update() to treat CONFIG_PROTECT and CONFIG_PROTECT_MASK correctly.
2110
2111 *portage-2.0.35 (03 Sep 2002)
2112
2113 03 Sep 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> etc-update,
2114 man/etc-update.1: new program for updating config files.
2115
2116 03 Sep 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: upgraded
2117 inherit() to support $PORTDIR_OVERLAY, closing bug #6033.
2118
2119 03 Sep 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: calls to "cvs" now
2120 use "-z3" compression option, closing bug #5982.
2121
2122 03 Sep 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: symlinks to
2123 .tbz2's in the $PKGDIR/All directory (from $PKGDIR/$CATEGORY) are now
2124 relative, closing bug #6881.
2125
2126 03 Sep 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: einstall now
2127 sees "GNUmakefile", closing bug #4895.
2128
2129 03 Sep 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: typo fixes,
2130 closing bug #7263.
2131
2132 03 Sep 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: /var/tmp
2133 creation now works even if /tmp already exists, closing bug #7376.
2134
2135 02 Sep 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: fixed a logic error
2136 that resulted in non-root emerge failure. This closes bug #7389.
2137
2138 *portage-2.0.34 (01 Sep 2002)
2139
2140 01 Sep 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: portage.py, ebuild.sh:
2141 Azarah's ebuildsh() removed, various other little fixes like pkg_preinst and
2142 friends not dying on non-zero return codes.
2143
2144 01 Sep 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: add a custom
2145 version of the esyslog() function to fix the "Red Star" bug if no logger is
2146 running.
2147
2148 *portage-2.0.33_p1 (30 Aug 2002): urgent fix
2149
2150 31 Aug 2002; Dan Armak <danarmak@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: comment out the if
2151 clause that only executed inherit() conditional on $PORTAGE_RESTORE_ENV. It
2152 didn't work and broke portage 2.0.33 as far as inheriting ebuilds goes.
2153
2154 *portage-2.0.33 (30 Aug 2002)
2155
2156 30 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> : some additional clean-ups
2157 for the make.conf(.ppc) files.
2158
2159 30 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: emerge search would
2160 die when aux_get() raised a KeyError; we now catch and handle this exception.
2161 This closes bug #7280.
2162
2163 29 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: fixed typo in
2164 move_ent() code that messed up moving packages into previously non-existant
2165 category directories in /var/db/pkg.
2166
2167 30 Aug 2002; Mark Guertin <gerk@gentoo.org> cnf/make.conf.ppc : Updated
2168 cnf/make.conf.ppc with new CFLAGS for 1.4 release
2169
2170 *portage-2.0.32 (29 Aug 2002)
2171
2172 29 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: favorites weren't
2173 working since 2.0.30; they're working again now. This closes bug #7225.
2174
2175 29 Aug 2002; Phil Bordelon <sunflare@gentoo.org> emerge.1: Added a small
2176 blurb regarding what to do when emerge --update [world|system] fails because
2177 of new features such as || and ?. Hopefully this will assuage the fairly
2178 common questions regarding this.
2179
2180 *portage-2.0.31 (29 Aug 2002)
2181
2182 28 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: fixed a config
2183 file protection logic bug detected and identified by Azarah. It basically
2184 broke most config file updates and has been broken for around six months.
2185 Very surprised no one had encountered this issue before.
2186
2187 28 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: improved error
2188 messages when an unsatisfiable dependency is encountered. Now lets you know
2189 if there are masked packages that would satisfy the dep.
2190
2191 28 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: emerging .tbz2
2192 packages and .ebuilds by name now works; this was broken in 2.0.30.
2193
2194 *portage-2.0.30 (28 Aug 2002)
2195
2196 28 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py, emerge: rewrote
2197 gettimeval() as cpv_counter() and updated it to handle corrupt COUNTER files,
2198 closing bug #6763.
2199
2200 28 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: "emerge search" now
2201 displays information for masked packages if possible, closing bug #6823.
2202
2203 28 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: fixed an old gbevin
2204 bug where "emerge search" wouldn't show packages whose version string was
2205 only one character long, ie. "foo-3". This closes bug #6800.
2206
2207 28 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: added a missing
2208 call to flatten() in dep_check(), allowing recursive sublists in dependencies
2209 and SRC_URI variables to work; this closes bugs #7104, #7116, #7122.
2210
2211 28 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> doman: fixed some typos,
2212 closing bug #7152.
2213
2214 28 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py, emerge: major
2215 work to emerge: reworked the internal code organization to make depgraph code
2216 easier to understand; unified two code paths so that ebuild/.tbz2 choices
2217 when "--usepkg" should now be eternally consistent; tweaked portage.py so
2218 that dep_expand()'s dbapi argument is optional. In the process of all this,
2219 isolated and fixed bug #4508.
2220
2221 27 Aug 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org> portage.py: if the dep
2222 cache is stale, it is possible that aux_get() will call doebuild(depend) to
2223 regenerate it again. This call will cause $T to be set to "", which will
2224 break anything that needs $T to be set to a writable location inside the
2225 sandbox, so we need to set $T to a valid value again.
2226
2227 27 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: improved error
2228 handling/detection of bad pkgsplit() and catpkgsplit() calls; should close
2229 bug #6803, #6853.
2230
2231 26 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: fix so that "emerge
2232 prune rsync" doesn't complain that you are trying to rsync and prune at the
2233 same time. This closes bug #6785.
2234
2235 26 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> doman fixes; should work
2236 for pre-gzipped man-pages and man-pages with multiple "."s in their name.
2237 Closes bugs #6770, #6917
2238
2239 25 Aug 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org> emerge: fixed an
2240 indentation problem of the 'else:' at line 1304.
2241
2242 20 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: removed stray
2243 "DEBUG:" output, closing bug #6732.
2244
2245 *portage-2.0.29 (18 Aug 2002)
2246
2247 18 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge, portage.py,
2248 ebuild.sh: making some effort to make output cleaner and less cluttered,
2249 particularly with error handling.
2250
2251 18 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: updated so that
2252 "emerge --inject foo-1.0" fails instead of injecting "null/foo-1.0"; fixed
2253 error in help; "emerge --inject" and "emerge" with no specified files or
2254 package classes prints out a small warning and exits. Closes bug #6353.
2255
2256 18 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: movefile()
2257 didn't like bind mounts due to a peculiar quality -- according to their
2258 ST_DEV stat() information, they are on the same filesystem, so rename()
2259 should work, but it doesn't. We now fall back to copy if rename() doesn't
2260 work. Closes bug #6468.
2261
2262 18 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: made significant
2263 enhancements and fixes to ebuild.sh's error-handling code. Errors in
2264 src_unpack(), src_compile(), src_install() and others should now be correctly
2265 detected. Also downgraded our use() function since we are not implementing
2266 extended USE functionality. Closes bug #6393.
2267
2268 18 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: portdb's
2269 cp_all() now skips "CVS" directories, closing bug #6662.
2270
2271 18 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: aux_get():
2272 exception handler to print informative message when encountering wacky cache
2273 entries that we just can't fix (for some reason.)
2274
2275 17 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: removed
2276 deprecated "ld.so" dependency from Dan Armak's newdepend() function.
2277
2278 17 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: doebuild()
2279 running in "depend" mode will set $T to "" to prevent a parent's $T from
2280 being inherited; this is important when we run custom portage code from
2281 inside an ebuild (such as pkg_postinst)... it allows dep caching to not
2282 break. Closes bug #6484.
2283
2284 *portage-2.0.28 (17 Aug 2002)
2285
2286 16 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: return errors when
2287 two actions like "world" and "system" are specified on the command-line, or
2288 when "system" or "world" are combined with package names. Closes bug #6492.
2289
2290 16 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: bad string was
2291 causing pkg_prerm() and pkg_postrm() to not be called; now fixed. This
2292 closes bug #6493.
2293
2294 16 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: now calls
2295 env-update() after an unmerge() run (to fix library paths, links, etc.)
2296 Closes bug #6511.
2297
2298 16 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> doman: now handles already-
2299 gzipped man pages correctly, closing bug #6544.
2300
2301 16 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: fixed a bug where a
2302 dep specified on the command-line with --usepkg would use an old package if
2303 it happened to match the dep. Now, it will use the ebuild instead, just like
2304 how deps of deps are treated.
2305
2306 *portage-2.0.27 (06 Aug 2002)
2307
2308 07 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: removed some
2309 beta extended USE functionality to speed up regenerate(); as we are likely
2310 not going to need extended USE for a good while.
2311
2312 07 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: ebuild.sh now
2313 supports "config" (pkg_config) again.
2314
2315 06 Aug 2002; Dan Armak <danarmak@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: change debug-print()
2316 to exit if $T is not defined, i.e. if emerge is running in dependency
2317 detection mode and isn't actually emerging everything. This fixes bug #4932
2318 (the "eclass-debug.log is created in /" problem).
2319
2320 06 Aug 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: Fixed a
2321 case-check problem that prevented tar.Z from being un-tar'd. This closes bug
2322 #6126.
2323
2324 06 Aug 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org> portage.py, ebuild.sh:
2325 Remove "setup" from 'sandboxactive' in portage.py, as we are not running
2326 pkg_setup() in a sandbox anymore. Move the restoring of the old env code
2327 to be the first thing in ebuild.sh, just to ensure we dont mess anything
2328 up when greping/awking during saving it.
2329
2330 *portage-2.0.26 (06 Aug 2002)
2331
2332 06 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: on unmerge,
2333 entries are now removed from the world file if 1) the dependency refers to
2334 the cat/pkg being unmerged, and 2) the dependency matches the current version
2335 being unmerged, and 3) unmerging this package will leave no other packages on
2336 this system that will match this world entry. This closes bug #3409.
2337
2338 06 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: new global
2339 update support. You can now add an entry to a file in
2340 /usr/portage/profiles/updates/, something like "move x11-base/xfree
2341 x11-base/xfree86". Portage will then update the /var/db/pkg db on user's
2342 boxes so that any xfree packages are renamed to xfree86; it will also update
2343 the world and virtuals files appropriately. We are naming the update files
2344 "3Q-2002", etc. -- for third quarter in 2002. This way, we don't bog
2345 Portage down by having it run through all our directives. It will only look
2346 at update files whose mtimes have changed. Closes bug #4753, #5463,
2347
2348 06 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: tweaked Azarah's
2349 environment-saving patch to not be enabled when $T is not defined -- this
2350 closes bug #6070 and should speed up dep calculations too. Also tweaked
2351 ebuild.sh so that pkg_setup() is run *outside* of the sandbox. This is
2352 important because piping stuff around tends to require temp files to be
2353 created; pkg_setup() being in the sandbox prevents this from happening.
2354
2355 06 Aug 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh : Unset
2356 esave_ebuild_env in esave_ebuild_env(), otherwise the sourced copy messes
2357 saving of the environment.
2358
2359 05 Aug 2002; Phil Bordelon <sunflare@gentoo.org> emerge.1: Updated the man
2360 page to match the current version of 2.0.25.
2361
2362 05 Aug 2002; Phil Bordelon <sunflare@gentoo.org> emerge.1: Updated the man
2363 page to match the current version of 2.0.25.
2364
2365 *portage-2.0.25 (05 Aug 2002)
2366
2367 05 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> src/sandbox/Makefile:
2368 removed -march=i386 added in Azarah's patch; breaks things for PPC, Sparc.
2369
2370 05 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: logic error fix for
2371 description searching, closing bug #6031.
2372
2373 *portage-2.0.24 (04 Aug 2002)
2374
2375 04 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> output.py, emerge: rewrote
2376 our output.py module (it was weird) and tweaked emerge so that colorization
2377 will be disabled if NOCOLOR is set to "yes" or "true" *or* if sys.stdout isn't
2378 a tty. This means that if you pipe things to "less", colorization will get
2379 automatically disabled. Yay! This closes bug #5714,
2380
2381 04 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: default
2382 src_compile now properly uses "die" instead of "return 1." This closes bug
2383 #2981.
2384
2385 04 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: "=foo/bar-1.0*"
2386 now matches "foo/bar-1.0_{alpha|beta|pre|rc}{int}" but not
2387 "foo/bar-1.1_{alpha_beta_pre_rc}{int}". This closes bug #5874; gcc-3.2_pre
2388 is now considered a "3.2" rather than a very late "3.1" when doing "*"
2389 matching.
2390
2391 04 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: Applied
2392 carpaski's patch to allow "unpack" to also handle regular .gz or .bz2 files;
2393 in which case the unpacked files are placed directly in ${WORKDIR}. Closing
2394 bug #5867.
2395
2396 04 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: tweaked
2397 exithandler() to only do its sandbox clean-up if we happen to be the root
2398 user. Closes bug #5859.
2399
2400 04 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: search now lists
2401 masked packages correctly. Closes bug #5854 (pending QA verification.)
2402
2403 04 Aug 2002; Phil Bordelon <sunflare@lsu.edu> emerge.1: The emerge man page
2404 now reflects the fact that emerge sync|rsync always does a --clean now. Also
2405 bumped the release number to 2.0.23.
2406
2407 03 Aug 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org> portage.py, emerge.sh,
2408 sandbox.c libsandbox.c: Updated sandbox.c and libsandbox.c to use an internal
2409 env variable, $SANDBOX_ACTIVE to determine if sandbox should really be active
2410 or not. With it only checking $SANDBOX_ON, some instances NOT running in a
2411 sandbox, but that set SANDBOX_ON while an actual sandbox was running, caused
2412 the sandbox to activate for this process. Added in support for a more phased
2413 calls to ebuild.sh again. This is this time done with support to save the
2414 current environment of ebuild.sh to the next call that should handle problems
2415 with pkg_setup() setting env variables. Closes bugs #5853, #5817, #5950.
2416
2417 *portage-2.0.23 (01 Aug 2002)
2418
2419 01 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py:
2420 ${ROOT}var/cache/edb and friends will get created if they don't exist,
2421 closing bug #5813.
2422
2423 01 Aug 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: rewrote the emerge
2424 search code, making it fully API-compliant and much more streamlined and
2425 compact. This rewrite should fix the problem where emerge search doesn't
2426 support Portage overlays (bug #5783.)
2427
2428 31 Jul 2002; Phil Bordelon <sunflare@gentoo.org> emerge.1: Documented the
2429 fact that emerge clean does not remove unslotted ebuilds. Bumped the man
2430 page revision number to 2.0.22.
2431
2432 *portage-2.0.22 (29 Jul 2002)
2433
2434 29 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: fetch() didn't
2435 handle resuming downloads properly when the first attempt aborted
2436 prematurely. The fall back to the alternate location would not resume the
2437 download. This should now be fixed. Closes bug #5655.
2438
2439 29 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py, ebuild.sh: I
2440 had some code in spawn() from one of Azarah's patches that I forgot to
2441 remove; it caused the sandbox to be disabled all the time. I removed this
2442 code, and then I tweaked ebuild.sh so that the sandbox runs in a "deny by
2443 default" configuration. Before, you could add lines to the main ebuild
2444 (outside of a function) and it would bypass the sandbox; no more. Closes
2445 bugs #5740, #5744.
2446
2447 29 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: --help and
2448 --version now work for non-root users as they should. --clean has been
2449 deprecated. This closes bug #5658.
2450
2451 *portage-2.0.21 (28 Jul 2002)
2452
2453 28 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py, emerge: Added
2454 beta "Portage tree overlay" support. By setting PORTDIR_OVERLAY to point to
2455 a local directory tree, you can cause Portage to look for ebuilds in
2456 PORTDIR_OVERLAY first before consulting the regular PORTDIR. Using this
2457 feature, it's possible to have your PORTDIR set up to rsync but still be able
2458 to have locally-created ebuilds in your PORTDIR_OVERLAY tree. For example,
2459 you would place your ebuild in PORTDIR_OVERLAY/sys-apps/foo/.
2460
2461 27 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: another
2462 dep_opconvert() USE-handling bug-fix. Working OK for Azarah now.
2463
2464 27 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: small logic
2465 error fix in dep_opconvert() to fix up USE handling.
2466
2467 27 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: security modes now
2468 work correctly; root access now required for merging. The new security pass
2469 code was missing a check that is now present.
2470
2471 *portage-2.0.20 (27 Jul 2002)
2472
2473 27 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py, emerge,
2474 repoman: Rewrote a good deal of our dependency-checking code, including all
2475 of dep_opconvert(). Results? repoman will now auto-enable all USE variables
2476 (even ! use variables will get enabled) resulting in thorough checks of all
2477 specified dependencies. DEPEND="foo? bar : oni" and DEPEND="foo? ( bar oni )
2478 : ( meep barf )" now works correctly. DEPEND="|| ( foo bar oni )" now works
2479 correctly and will try to satisfy "foo" (the first package) if none are
2480 installed. DEPEND="!foo? ( bar )" now works correctly; it was not working
2481 before. This should generally mean that our dependency system is now working
2482 as expected.
2483
2484 27 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: changed
2485 counter_tick() method so that bulk of code is in the counter_tick_code()
2486 helper function; then created a new method for fakedbapi that calls
2487 counter_tick(). This fixes "--emptytree" issues with emerge, since emerge
2488 still expects counter_tick() to exist as a method.
2489
2490 27 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py, emerge: removed
2491 a DEBUG: print and a stray "raise IndexError" that I used for debugging.
2492
2493 *portage-2.0.19 (26 Jul 2002)
2494
2495 26 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: Portage is now
2496 eclass-friendly when it comes to regenerating cache entries. This closes bug
2497 #4843.
2498
2499 26 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py, emerge: Closed
2500 bug #5524. Packages "emerge inject"ed will no longer get auto-cleaned
2501 indiscriminantly. Injected packages now have an official COUNTER so that
2502 emerge clean doesn't get confused and schedule the package for removal. Also
2503 modularized and improved the counter-handling functions and changed the
2504 counter update method so that systems with XFS filesystems that die
2505 unexpectedly will no longer get corrupted COUNTER files. This should solve
2506 the an entire class of "my counter is corrupt" issues for XFS users.
2507
2508 26 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: added exception
2509 handler to getcontents() so that it will gracefully ignore (with a warning)
2510 corrupt CONTENTS file lines. This closes bug #5464.
2511
2512 26 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: fixed a single-line
2513 indentation error that resulted in "emerge clean" ignoring some files. This
2514 closes bug #5597,#4364.
2515
2516 25 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: --noreplace is now
2517 off by default and works again; --onlydeps appears to be working again; and
2518 merge() will merge things as specified in display(), which was not the case
2519 before (I rolled 2.0.18 before fixing a few things I forgot about)
2520
2521 *portage-2.0.18 (25 Jul 2002)
2522
2523 25 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: Close bug
2524 #5580; pkg_setup() now gets called during all build-related stages.
2525
2526 24 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py, emerge: rewrote
2527 create() function, closing bug #5469. Also added freeze() and melt() methods
2528 to portdbapi to enhance performance. create() is now extensively commented
2529 and even understandable.
2530
2531 24 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: the "rsync --clean"
2532 option has been deprecated. Cleaning is now on by default, closing bug
2533 #5527.
2534
2535 24 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py, make.globals:
2536 It should now be safe to do what Spider did in the gconf ebuild and add
2537 CONFIG_PROTECT and CONFIG_PROTECT_MASK to /etc/env.d entries. Both variables
2538 are now incremental, just like USE, and you can use "-path" to turn a path
2539 off, or add CONFIG_PROTECT{_MASK}="path" to *add* a path to the list (this
2540 will not overwrite "parent" settings. Also added "/etc/env.d/" to
2541 CONFIG_PROTECT_MASK in /etc/make.globals. Also, very importantly, /etc/env.d
2542 is now hard-coded into CONFIG_PROTECT_MASK as it was in earlier versions of
2543 Portage and cannot be removed.
2544
2545 24 Jul 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge, portage.py: two
2546 fixes; first, I removed xcache.p support from portage.py. The code was
2547 designed based on the false theory that directory mtimes are updated whenever
2548 an object inside that directory is modified. That is not the case -- it
2549 happens when the directory listing itself changes. Also fixed overly verbose
2550 emerge merging error.
2551
2552 23 Jul 2002; Phil Bordelon <sunflare@gentoo.org> emerge.1: Updated the man
2553 page to match some changes in the latest version of portage, along with some
2554 fixes recommended by drobbins.
2555
2556 *portage-2.0.17 (23 Jul 2002)
2557
2558 23 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: fixed a bug
2559 pointed out by trance -- dep_nomatch() was still using the old (deleted)
2560 match() function. Now it's using a new match() method.
2561
2562 *portage-2.0.16 (22 Jul 2002)
2563
2564 22 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: changed xcache
2565 behavior so that the cache gets totally thrown away when the masks are
2566 updated. Also revamped carpaski's code so we can avoid loading xcache from
2567 disk if we simply plan to throw it away. This necessitated the creation of a
2568 new file in /var/cache/edb: mtimes. This file stores mtimes for various
2569 important filesystem objects. Also added support to not regenerate the GNU
2570 info directory index if the mtime on /usr/share/info has not changed since
2571 previous invocation.
2572
2573 22 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py, emerge: moved
2574 security handling code from emerge to portage.py; also moved group "wheel"
2575 check to portage.py. Added additional security checks and permissions fixes
2576 to the cache handling functions.
2577
2578 22 Jul 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: fixed a bug
2579 reported by woodchip related to merging packages. When using --usepkg, a
2580 package wouldn't be used if there was a newer unmasked version of the ebuild
2581 available, even if the package in question was the right selection.
2582
2583 22 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: fixed create() code
2584 and consolidated some functions. My goal is to simplify the emerge code
2585 until it's clean, at which point we can begin adding new features to emerge
2586 like more SLOT-friendly decision making.
2587
2588 22 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: was able to
2589 remove 130 or so lines of code by depreciating the match() function (replaced
2590 by the match2() method.) I also rennovated the binarytree code to take
2591 advantage of fakedbapi.
2592
2593 22 Jul 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> portage.py: added the
2594 xcache.p fix and updated the version to 2.0.16pre (from 2.0.12) -- Also added
2595 in a try/except inside the store() (atexit) for xcache.p to give hints
2596 instead of tracebacks.
2597
2598 22 Jul 2002; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@gentoo.org> emerge: added the
2599 description searching code and added a spinner to the search.
2600
2601 21 Jul 2002; Phil Bordelon <sunflare@gentoo.org> emerge.1: Finished the
2602 rewrite of the emerge man page.
2603
2604 21 Jul 2002; Phil Bordelon <sunflare@gentoo.org> emerge: Readded the sync
2605 help to the list of help options now that emerge --help sync works again.
2606
2607 *portage-2.0.15 (16 Jul 2002)
2608
2609 15 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emake: no longer falls back
2610 to plain old "make" if parallel make fails. I believe it's best to fix the
2611 problem (turn parallel make off in the ebuild) rather than tweak emake to
2612 avoid it.
2613
2614 15 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: rewrote some code,
2615 cleaning things up and removing redundant functions. Starting to
2616 de-cruftify.
2617
2618 15 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: fix for permissions
2619 when updating the cache using server-generated entries.
2620
2621 *portage-2.0.14 (15 Jul 2002)
2622
2623 15 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: ccache bug fix;
2624 removed extra "!". Ccache should now get enabled properly. Also, INHERITED
2625 variable is now getting added to the dep cache entries for future
2626 eclass-friendly caching.
2627
2628 15 Jul 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: Portage now
2629 *persistently* caches xmatch() calculations. This appears to speed things up
2630 but we will need to limit the size of the new xcache.p in future versions of
2631 Portage.
2632
2633 15 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py, emerge: Portage
2634 now has keyword-based masking enabled. It also has server-side caching
2635 enabled to eliminate "emerge pre-Calculating dependencies... delay" for
2636 end-users. There is now an undocumented "regen" option for emerge that tells
2637 Portage to ensure that all entries in /var/cache/edb/dep are up-to-date.
2638 This is intended mainly for developers, as the server-side caching feature
2639 should ensure that all dep cache entries are up-to-date for end-users.
2640
2641 15 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> repoman: repoman now checks
2642 for ebuilds that generate output as well as ebuilds that return a non-zero
2643 error code when sourced. For this test to detect all failures, you need to
2644 wipe out your /var/cache/edb/dep/* before running repoman. This design quirk
2645 is necessary to preserve existing emerge behavior.
2646
2647 13 Jul 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: Removed
2648 Azarah's ebuildsh() function as it breaks pkg_setup() again. pkg_setup()
2649 needs to be called as part of the same process as any other ebuil.sh command
2650 so that environment vars set in pkg_setup() are preserved through the rest of
2651 the build process.
2652
2653 13 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: changed calling
2654 convention for doebuild("depend").
2655
2656 13 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: removed
2657 erroneous "local dbkeys" that was outside of a function. This fixes some
2658 cache update problems. Added INHERIT to our cache entries so we can
2659 correctly update the cache for eclass ebuilds.
2660
2661 12 Jul 2002; Dan Armak <danarmak@gentoo.org> make.globals, make.globals.ppc:
2662 remove default KDE2DIR, KDE3DIR settings and comments. The kde eclasses will
2663 now handle the case where they are not defined. This will be used with kde
2664 3.1 and later, and the difference between their default value and them not
2665 being defined is important.
2666
2667 *portage-2.0.13 (11 Jul 2002)
2668
2669 11 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> tarball.sh: our tarball
2670 script didn't clean the src/sandbox directory before creating our distribution
2671 tarball. This resulted in src/sandbox/sandbox (the executable) being distributed,
2672 and the "make" in the ebuild thinking everything was up-to-date. The result?
2673 Everyone in the world got a sandbox compiled with gcc 3.1. This has been
2674 fixed, closing bug #4867, #4851.
2675
2676 10 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: removed some
2677 bogus code that snuck in. pkg_setup() is no longer called when installing a
2678 tbz2. All tbz2 stuff should be done in pkg_pre/postinst().
2679
2680 *portage-2.0.12 (10 Jul 2002)
2681
2682 10 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> ccache support is now
2683 controlled via a "ccache" FEATURES variable, which is enabled in make.globals
2684 my default. ccache support can now be turned off by adding a
2685 FEATURES="-ccache" to /etc/make.conf. Also, CCACHE_DIR correctly detected
2686 and utilized.
2687
2688 10 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: "emerge --help
2689 rsync" now works correctly and displays rync help rather than rsyncing. This
2690 closes bug #4438, #4629.
2691
2692 10 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: Portage now
2693 prints a friendly error if PORTAGE_TMPDIR doesn't exist or is not a
2694 directory. This effectively closes bug #4360.
2695
2696 10 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: the "inject",
2697 "sync" and "rsync" actions no longer allow "--pretend" or "-p" to be
2698 specified. This closes bug #4352.
2699
2700 10 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> sandbox.c: use realpath()
2701 to expand the PORTAGE_TMPDIR, /var/tmp, /tmp paths. This allows write access
2702 to these directories even if /var or /var/tmp is a symlink, for example.
2703 Without this fix, access to these directories will be denied by the sandbox,
2704 creating a bunch of problems. Closes bugs #4256, #2379, #4625, #2931, #4829.
2705
2706 10 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> megadigest, megadownload,
2707 megatouch, pkgsearch: removed from the bin/ directory; deprecated.
2708
2709 10 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge, quickpkg: remove
2710 hard-coded references to "/usr/portage" in "emerge search", quickpkg. Now
2711 correctly uses PORTDIR instead. Closes bug #4836.
2712
2713 10 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: emerge now checks
2714 to see if the "wheel" group exists before running; if it doesn't, it exits
2715 with a polite error message. Closes bug #4736.
2716
2717 08 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: changed the
2718 unmerge() code so that it doesn't use mtimes to test whether a symlink
2719 should be unmerged, since mtimes and symlinks are weird partners. Instead,
2720 we save unmerging of our symlinks until the end of the code, and unmerge
2721 them only if their target no longer exists. This closes bug #4491.
2722
2723 08 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: check whether
2724 ebuild actually exists immediately before running pkg_postint() and
2725 pkg_preinst() from the dblink merge() method. Also change all PKG_TMPDIR
2726 references to PORTAGE_TMPDIR plus suffix, closing bug #4447, #4853.
2727
2728 *portage-2.0.11 (07 Jul 2002)
2729
2730 07 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: rewrote
2731 portdbapi's xmatch() and visible() to fix significant bugs. Logic errors in
2732 both methods caused ~ deps to not work correctly. After the rewrite,
2733 dependency checking is now 44% faster.
2734
2735 07 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> repoman, portage.py: Added
2736 new DEPEND and RDEPEND.badmasked categories to repoman. repoman now checks
2737 dependencies of masked packages using *all* ebuilds, rather than trying to
2738 match them against all visible ebuilds. DEPEND.bad and RDEPEND.bad (used to
2739 be ".unsolvable") now only tally visible ebuilds, not masked ones.
2740
2741 *portage-2.0.10 (06 Jul 2002)
2742
2743 05 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py, repoman: Added
2744 new capabilities to repoman -- the ability to detect unsolvable DEPEND and
2745 RDEPEND variables, missing DESCRIPTION, LICENSE, KEYWORDS and SLOT. Fixed
2746 repoman so that adding a comment with quotes in it doesn't break things.
2747 Added a few tiny extensions to portage.py to support the new repoman
2748 features.
2749
2750 03 Jul 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: some ebuilds
2751 like gcc do not use $S to build the package in, and this causes generated .la
2752 files (libtool) to contain $WORKDIR in them. We thus export $WORKDIR in
2753 ebuild.sh as well, to go along with fixes to the libtool-portage patch.
2754
2755 02 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: pkg_setup() now
2756 gets called before a tbz2 is installed, and pkg_preinst() and postinst() get
2757 called at the right times as well.
2758
2759 01 Jul 2002; Phil Bordelon <sunflare@gentoo.org> emerge: "emerge --help
2760 rsync" does an rsync instead of printing help. Until this is fixed, I
2761 removed it from the list of detailed help options.
2762
2763 *portage-2.0.9 (01 Jul 2002)
2764
2765 01 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> Added missing .match()
2766 method to portdbapi.
2767
2768 01 Jul 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: Added new
2769 operator for dependencies: DEPEND="foo? bar : oni" will use oni if foo isn't
2770 set. Added "||" support back after removing it from my working copy; looks
2771 ok.
2772
2773 29 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py, make.globals,
2774 make.globals.ppc: internalized definitions of BUILDDIR and PKG_TMPDIR in
2775 order to make things work as expected when one sets PORTAGE_TMPDIR. The new
2776 config file var expansion algorithm made this change necessary.
2777
2778 29 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: fix doebuild()
2779 so that pkg_setup() gets called when a .tbz2 package is being built. This
2780 closes bug #3673.
2781
2782 29 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: tweaked the
2783 aux_get() code to automatically regenerate cache files if they have the
2784 incorrect number of entries. Added an additional fix to this code on 01 Jul
2785 2002.
2786
2787 29 Jun 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org> portage.py: merge in some
2788 of the missing ld.so.preload fixes again.
2789
2790 29 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: new version
2791 with highly-optimized dependency calculation caching, particularly for
2792 portdbapi. Includes new three-level caching portdbapi xmatch() method.
2793
2794 27 Jun 2002; Grant Goodyear <g2boojum@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: Added keepdir()
2795 function so that it no longer has to be hardcoded in ebuilds.
2796
2797 *portage-2.0.8 (27 Jun 2002)
2798
2799 27 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: in an attempt to
2800 provide a predictable release of Portage, I'm reverting the "emerge
2801 --pretend" "fix" in Portage-2.0.6. It ignores custom USE settings when
2802 calculating child deps, which makes things tricky for users. We'll use the
2803 "expected" (old) behavior for now until we have a solution for this USE
2804 issue.
2805
2806 27 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: fixed handling
2807 of ! deps in match(), closing bug #4219. Thanks Spidler!
2808
2809 27 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: disabled USE
2810 regeneration on reset() for performance purposes.
2811
2812 *portage-2.0.7 (26 Jun 2002)
2813
2814 26 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: add a friendly
2815 error handler for aux_get() so that flaky ebuilds don't cause it to trip up
2816 with a cryptic traceback; users will get a friendly error message instead.
2817 Also, temporarily disable keyword-based masking, since it currently slows
2818 down Portage by quite a bit since it causes a much greater set of ebuilds to
2819 be cached.
2820
2821 *portage-2.0.6 (25 Jun 2002)
2822
2823 25 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: rewrote the
2824 config file code to make things more sane, consistent, and made infinite
2825 loops during variable expansion a thing of the past. This closes bug #3952.
2826
2827 25 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge, portage.py,
2828 ebuild.sh: "emerge --pretend" and "emerge search" now work for the root user
2829 as well as any users in the "wheel" group. emerge will now gracefully exit
2830 if "emerge search" is run by someone not in the "wheel" group. This closes
2831 bug #4121.
2832
2833 25 Jun 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org> bin/{dolib.so,preplib.so}:
2834 Also change "strip --strip-unneeded" to "strip --strip-debug" for these.
2835 Look at bugs #2702,#3929,#4027 for more info.
2836
2837 25 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: "emerge -u" now
2838 correctly scans dependencies of packages, even if they are up-to-date, to
2839 determine if any of their dependencies need updating. Previously, up-to-date
2840 packages were not scanned in this way, which was a bug.
2841
2842 24 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: Portage will now
2843 automatically take advantage of ccache if the >=dev-util/ccache-1.9 ebuild is
2844 installed. Removing /var/cache/ccache hole in the sandbox.
2845
2846 *portage-2.0.5 (24 Jun 2002)
2847
2848 23 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: basic keyword-
2849 based masking is now active. New support for KEYWORDS in ebuilds and
2850 ACCEPT_KEYWORDS in profiles.
2851
2852 23 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> conf files: removed
2853 references to non-functional FTP_PROXY and HTTP_PROXY and added a note about
2854 how to use the correct vars (ftp_proxy and http_proxy.) Closes bug #1664.
2855 Also added note about RSYNC_PROXY, closing bug #2332.
2856
2857 23 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: removed
2858 "dependency too short" checks which weren't working and were causing deps
2859 like "mc" and "ed" to be rejected as invalid rather than being expanded.
2860
2861 23 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: upgraded "clean"
2862 code to be more robust, consistent. Closes bug #3967.
2863
2864 *portage-2.0.4 (20 Jun 2002)
2865
2866 20 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> in the 2.0.4 ebuild itself:
2867 added back tbz2tool symlink which was mistakenly removed. Also changed the
2868 way we compile portage.py stuff so that we remove the previously compiled
2869 files, just in case clock skew cause them to seem more recent than they
2870 really are. Python byte-code compilation moved to pkg_postinst()
2871
2872 20 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: fixed up the
2873 fetch() code so that invalid digests don't cause a traceback.
2874
2875 20 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: some of the new
2876 transplanted virtuals code assumed that profiledir was set, which is not
2877 required. This code has now been fixed to not make that assumption.
2878
2879 *portage-2.0.3 (20 Jun 2002)
2880
2881 20 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: fixed two typos
2882 pointed out by stroke and g2boojum. These fix unmerge and some aspect of
2883 virtuals handling, which was previously causing a traceback.
2884
2885 19 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: emerge -eup world
2886 now will ignore world entries if it isn't really installed locally; in 2.0.1,
2887 --emptytree would auto-enable all world entries, leading to inconsistent
2888 package lists between --emptytree and without.
2889
2890 *portage-2.0.2 (19 Jun 2002)
2891
2892 19 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> make.conf.ppc,
2893 make.globals.ppc: integrated these files into our sources.
2894
2895 19 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: fixed a bug
2896 where ROOT="" would not get properly converted to ROOT="/".
2897
2898 18 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: Portage 2.0+ has
2899 fixed "!" depend matching support, but some code in emerge was designed to
2900 anticipate the incorrect behavior. This emerge code has been fixed to work
2901 correctly. This closes my part of bug #3834.
2902
2903 18 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py, emerge: fixed
2904 bug #2444, where emerge fails when "--emptytree" and "--onlydeps" are used at
2905 the same time.
2906
2907 18 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py, emerge: new
2908 fakedbapi for doing emptytree calculations; emptytree upgrades in emerge.
2909 "emerge -upe world" now works correctly, accounting for items in the world
2910 profile. Yay! Bugs #3832 and #1911 fixed.
2911
2912 18 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py, emerge:
2913 Integrated new aux_get() method into our portdbapi. aux_get() provides a
2914 standardized way to get cached information about ebuilds, and is now fully
2915 integrated into Portage and emerge search.
2916
2917 18 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: fixed a bug
2918 where dep_nomatch() was testing for None rather than a "zero" condition,
2919 causing dep_nomatch() to choke on match()'s [] return value.
2920
2921 17 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: added an exception
2922 handler to catch invalid regular expressions and avoid a traceback.
2923
2924 17 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> sandbox.c: added
2925 /var/cache/ccache to sandbox "write ok" list, closing bug #3028.
2926
2927 *portage-2.0.1 (16 Jun 2002)
2928
2929 16 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py, emerge: fixed a
2930 virtuals expansion bug that would cause virtuals to be consulted too early.
2931
2932 *portage-2.0 (16 Jun 2002)
2933
2934 16 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py, ebuild.sh,
2935 emerge: turbo-ified Portage, new Portage db API and many other fixes.
2936 Unmerging now works again (bug introduced several releases ago.) I
2937 originally wanted to hold off on releasing 2.0, but since several major bugs
2938 are fixed, we need to get these fixes out to our users ASAP. We will be
2939 releasing 2.1 in about a week which should include additional refinements.
2940
2941 16 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> repoman: New repoman
2942 commit/check QA tool for developers.
2943
2944 10 Jun 2002; Dan Armak <danarmak@gentoo.org> make.conf: Update the ibiblio
2945 mirror path; it is now www.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/distributions/gentoo.
2946
2947 10 Jun 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh : Some users have
2948 $TMPDIR to a custom dir in their home ...this will cause sandbox errors with
2949 some ./configure scripts or libtool, so set it to $T.
2950
2951 10 Jun 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org> portage.py : Merge in the
2952 ld.so.preload changes. Also updated spawn() to only run sandbox if
2953 buildphase is one of clean, unpack, compile or install. This should fix the
2954 handler not detecting some instances of sandbox running. Updated ebuildsh()
2955 to set buildphase="" on spawn exit.
2956
2957 10 Jun 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>
2958 portage.py.ldsopreload,testsandbox.sh : Add support to test if another
2959 sandbox is running, if so dont delete /etc/ld.so.preload on kill. I did not
2960 commit this to portage.py, as it is a bit more changes than we originally
2961 though.
2962
2963 05 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: doebuild() now
2964 has proper logic for digest generation. Digest will now get regenerated if
2965 "ebuild digest" is run, even if "digest" is in FEATURES.
2966
2967 04 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: fixed typo in
2968 "inject" documentation.
2969
2970 02 Jun 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org> bin/dosym: changed the
2971 command used from "ln -sf" to "ln -snf" as it created a symlink in the target
2972 directory if the linkname already existed (only if the target is a
2973 directory). Im guessing this should be fixed in the python merged code if
2974 symlinks are not unlinked before the new is merged into place .. will add a
2975 bug later.
2976
2977 *portage-1.9.14 (01 Jun 2002)
2978
2979 01 Jun 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: when a file to
2980 be merged is identical to the one currently on disk (using the md5 test), we
2981 now at least correctly update the target's mtime and atime so that cleaning
2982 will work correctly.
2983
2984 27 May 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> bin/do*: changed "return"s
2985 to "exit 1". Closes bug #3078.
2986
2987 *portage-1.9.13 (21 May 2002)
2988
2989 21 May 2002; Grant Goodyear <g2boojum@gentoo.org> emerge.1: Updated man page.
2990 Thanks to carpaski@twobit.net.
2991
2992 20 May 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: a fix for dep
2993 regeneration; stale dep cache entries should now be properly regenerated.
2994
2995 *portage-1.9.12 (16 May 2002)
2996
2997 16 May 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: the settings
2998 for A and AA were swapped; this has now been fixed, closing bug #1634.
2999
3000 15 May 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: fixed up some
3001 quirks in the new fetch code which were reported by Wout Mertens. Thanks
3002 Wout!
3003
3004 *portage-1.9.11 (13 May 2002)
3005
3006 13 May 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: addition of
3007 third-party mirroring code. "mirror://sourceforge/foo.tar.gz" will use the
3008 /usr/portage/profiles/thirdpartymirrors file to define the mirror it will
3009 download from. Multiple mirrors for a single keyword can be specified on a
3010 single line. This code was based on the good work of Ryan Phillips.
3011
3012 13 May 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: (entry on behalf
3013 of jnelson) -- we now have new KV detection/setting code that uses
3014 /usr/src/linux/include/linux/version.h to determine the kernel version -- the
3015 right way of doing things. KV is set to "" if the kernel is not available or
3016 not configured.
3017
3018 13 May 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: "abspath[x]" =>
3019 "abspath(x)" typo fix. Also added 2-liner to allow for "emerge unmerge" to
3020 specify "foo/bar-1.0" rather than requiring "=foo/bar-1.0." Also fixed
3021 problems when specifying the names of actual ebuilds in /var/db/pkg to
3022 unmerge.
3023
3024 *portage-1.9.9 (06 May 2002) ??
3025
3026 08 May 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: An empty
3027 USE_ORDER (due to an out-of-date /etc/make.globals) would cause USE to always
3028 be empty. I added a reasonable default USE_ORDER if USE_ORDER is not found
3029 in any of the config files, fixing this problem.
3030
3031 06 May 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: post bug #1841
3032 cleanups; converted from .hasnode() to .dep_match() (correct) in
3033 getworldlist().
3034
3035 *portage-1.9.8 (06 May 2002)
3036
3037 06 May 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: 2 fixes that seemed
3038 to get fried/zapped: bug #1841 and fixing an emerge sync error code to be
3039 more understandable.
3040
3041 *portage-1.9.7 (06 May 2002)
3042
3043 06 May 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py, emerge: initial
3044 bunch of robustness/error-handling fixes. Emerge should now report a
3045 comprehensible error message for errors in DEPEND and RDEPEND rather than
3046 giving a traceback. Fixed dep_depreduce() to catch errors rather than
3047 passing them on to dep_bestmatch() (which doesn't check for errors and
3048 assumes correct input)
3049
3050 02 May 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: typo fix for
3051 S_ISFIFO call; thanks woodchip!
3052
3053 *portage-1.9.6 (02 May 2002)
3054
3055 02 May 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> make.conf: SYNC variable
3056 correctly set to use our DNS round-robin system (rsync.gentoo.org).
3057
3058 *portage-1.9.6_pre2 (01 May 2002)
3059
3060 01 May 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: config file
3061 protection upgrade; we now record md5sums of previously-merged config protect
3062 files in /var/cache/edb/config; we use this information to avoid merging
3063 files that have been merged by us before (if it is safe to do so). This
3064 doesn't solve the problem of rolling back to a previously-merged version of
3065 a config file; we need to add cvs headers to every config file to get that
3066 to work.
3067
3068 *portage-1.9.6_pre1 (01 May 2002)
3069
3070 01 May 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: added "inject"
3071 capability to artificially satisfy a dep -- for situations when you don't
3072 want Portage to do it for you because you've taken care of it already.
3073
3074 01 May 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py, emerge: totally
3075 rewrote emerge's unmerge code. The original code (added by Bevin) was a bit
3076 too cryptic and "big" for my taste. Also added two new capabilities to
3077 portage.py's vartree: .getslot() and .gettimeval(). getslot() returns the
3078 slot value of a cat/pkg-v, if any, and gettimeval() returns a "time value"
3079 (based on mtime/COUNTER value) that can be used to determine the order in
3080 which packages got merged. The purpose of these improvements were to revamp
3081 the existing Portage code that could only unmerge a db entry if there was a
3082 corresponding ebuild file. This conflicted with the ability to "inject"
3083 packages (see above), so it needed to be changed. Also fixed some bugs along
3084 the way.
3085
3086 01 May 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: einstall now
3087 accepts arguments, closing bug #2275. Thanks seemant! :)
3088
3089 01 May 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> make.globals: switch SYNC
3090 var from cvs.gentoo.org to rsync.gentoo.org, and gentoo-x86-portage to
3091 gentoo-portage.
3092
3093 30 Apr 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: now checks for
3094 errors (caused by bad deps) returned by create() and syscreate().
3095
3096 *portage-1.9.5 (29 Apr 2002)
3097
3098 29 Apr 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: added jnelson's
3099 KV_extract.awk script which extracts the kernel version from the actual
3100 kernel sources Makefile, making our KV setting much more robust! Thanks Jon
3101 :)
3102
3103 29 Apr 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: correctly fixed
3104 emerge search examples to use single quotes (to turn off globbing.) This
3105 closes bug #1609.
3106
3107 29 Apr 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: virtual entries
3108 for no-longer-installed packages now get automatically removed on unmerge.
3109 This closes bug #2255 and #1891 (Thilo Bangert's comment on #1891 is also
3110 fixed.)
3111
3112 *portage-1.9.4 (29 Apr 2002)
3113
3114 29 Apr 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: Added support
3115 for RESTRICT="nomirror". If "mirror" is defined in FEATURES and "nomirror"
3116 is defined in RESTRICT, then files will not be fetched.
3117
3118 29 Apr 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: Fixed docs for
3119 "unmerge", added docs for "--oneshot". Closes bugs #2156 and #2182.
3120
3121 29 Apr 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: Fix for USE
3122 troubles; confirmed by Azarah as working :) Also, we now strip the path
3123 from "KV" as we should.
3124
3125 *portage-1.9.4_pre1 (26 Apr 2002)
3126
3127 26 Apr 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> tarball.sh: no longer
3128 necessary for VERSION to equal "@portage_version@" to get the version
3129 auto-set. VERSION can now be set to anything and tarball.sh will get it
3130 right.
3131
3132 26 Apr 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: I've started work
3133 on revamping/improving the "blocks" system to get ready to fix bug #1891.
3134 Already fixed a bug where "blocks" ("!" deps) print out the wrong blocking
3135 package name. This is now fixed. Blocks need additional testing.
3136
3137 26 Apr 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py, ebuild.sh, use:
3138 "use" is now a bash builtin function rather than an external python-based
3139 command. This appears to fix the USE inconstencies, as it should, thereby
3140 closing bug #2000.
3141
3142 *portage-1.9.3 (24 Apr 2002)
3143
3144 24 Apr 2002; Jon Nelson <jnelson@gentoo.org>: portage.py, chkcontents:
3145 Emulate fchksum's md5 checksum routine. Closes bug #2787.
3146
3147 23 Apr 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: emerge: invalid
3148 short options result in an exit. Closes bug #2025.
3149
3150 22 Apr 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: emerge: rsync zlib
3151 compression enabled by default.
3152
3153 *portage-1.9.2 (21 Apr 2002)
3154
3155 21 Apr 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: portage.py: signal
3156 handler now zaps /etc/ld.so.preload if it's there -- this prevents it
3157 from hanging around and causing sandbox badness.
3158
3159 21 Apr 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: emerge: fixed an
3160 error where --emptytree mode wouldn't really have a fully empty tree,
3161 due to the emptytree.inject() coming before the emptytree.root=None;
3162 the inject() caused a recalc of the USE vars, which caused the tree
3163 to become partially populated and it wasn't cleared. This closes bug
3164 #1897.
3165
3166 21 Apr 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: portage.py: package
3167 building now executes the "setup" stage along with the unpack, compile,
3168 install stages so that global variables can be shared. This fixes an issue
3169 with woodchip's new apache ebuild and closes bug #1813.
3170
3171 *portage-1.9.1 (16 Apr 2002)
3172
3173 16 Apr 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: tiny (and forgotten)
3174 quick fix.
3175
3176 *portage-1.9.0 (16 Apr 2002)
3177
3178 16 Apr 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: portage.py: fetching
3179 should now try *all* alternate download locations, closing bug #1544.
3180 Yay!
3181
3182 15 Apr 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: emerge: "emerge R" now
3183 works correctly, closing bug #1094.
3184
3185 15 Apr 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: ebuild.sh: *'s and ?'s in
3186 DEPEND and SRC_URI syntax should no longer get glob-expanded to files in
3187 /usr/portage. This fixes some cryptic bugs. It also closes bug #1473.
3188
3189 15 Apr 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: portage.py: emerge --debug
3190 now works again. Closes bug #1437.
3191
3192 15 Apr 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: portage.py: moved argument
3193 check to the beginning of the doebuild() function to prevent "ebuild
3194 foo.ebuild fart" from causing the md5sums to be checked before recognizing
3195 that "fart" is not a valid command. Closes bug #1823.
3196
3197 15 Apr 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: portage.py: 'USE="-foo"
3198 emerge bar' should now work correctly and consistently. Fixes to the config
3199 class. Closes bug #1455.
3200
3201 15 Apr 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: portage.py: applied
3202 jnelson's patch to properly kill all children when interrupted with ^C
3203
3204 15 Apr 2002; Donny Davies <woodchip@gentoo.org>: make.conf: added a
3205 RESUMECOMMAND for lukemftp.
3206
3207 15 Apr 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: portage.py: fixed up some
3208 "zing" logic inside the merge code (fixing variable being used before
3209 assignment errors)
3210
3211 15 Apr 2002; Jon Nelson <jnelson@gentoo.org>: src/sandbox/Makefile,
3212 src/sandbox/problems/Makefile, src/sandbox/problems/sandbox_dev_fd_foo.c,
3213 src/sandbox/sandbox.c: Cleaned up Makefiles somewhat to take advantage of GNU
3214 Make, added '/dev/zero' and /dev/fd/' (<- note trailing slash) to the list of
3215 items accessible safely from the sandbox. Added sandbox_dev_fd_foo.c to test
3216 for /dev/fd/<xx>. The test is almost verbatim from the autoconf test suite.
3217
3218 13 Apr 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: ebuild.sh:
3219 Export $S and $D in dyn_compile and dyn_install, as our patched
3220 version of libtool uses these to fixup .la files.
3221
3222 *portage-1.8.19 (09 Apr 2002)
3223
3224 08 Apr 2002; Geert Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org>: emerge: Removed --all switch to
3225 emerge unmerge and clea. Added emerge prune which is the same as old emerge
3226 unmerge. Emerge unmerge removes all instances again without any proctedtion,
3227 as before. Added reporting of Omitted versions due to dep selectors.
3228 Renamed Removing and Keeping to Selected and Protected
3229
3230 08 Apr 2002; Geert Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org>: emerge, portage.py: Better
3231 unmerge and clean reporting. Added homepage output to emerge --search.
3232 Bugfix when specifying a package without category that doesn't exist.
3233
3234 *portage-1.8.18 (07 Apr 2002)
3235
3236 07 Apr 2002; Geert Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org>: make.globals, emerge:
3237 Simplified unmerge functionality. Deprecated the CLEANMODE var,
3238 emerge clean now removes both revisions and slots automatically,
3239 emerge unmerge now removes all versions and revisions by default.
3240 Both understand world and system targets, and the --all option which doesn't
3241 check which packages are old and outdated.
3242 Documentation fixes.
3243 AUTOCLEAN var addition and added the autoclean functionality.
3244
3245 *portage-1.8.17 (05 Apr 2002)
3246
3247 05 Apr 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: portage.py: no longer
3248 print out the counter number after a merge. This information should not
3249 need to be known by end-users.
3250
3251 05 Apr 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: sandbox.c: patched to
3252 allow access to /dev/vc from sandbox, allowing vim and screen to compile
3253 correctly from console.
3254
3255 05 Apr 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: portage.py: fixed a bug
3256 that prevented md5 digests from being compared on archives.
3257
3258 04 Apr 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: portage.py: Parse errors
3259 in /etc/env.d files no longer cause a traceback.
3260
3261 *portage-1.8.16 (04 Apr 2002)
3262
3263 04 Apr 2002; Geert Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> portage.py, emerge : Forgot to
3264 commit my changes, this is an assembled version of both drobbins's and my
3265 changes
3266
3267 *portage-1.8.15 (04 Apr 2002)
3268
3269 04 Apr 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: Fixed a
3270 semi-long standing bug where I was comparing atimes rather than mtimes when
3271 seeing if dep caches were stale. This fixes a bug originally reported by Dan
3272 Armak.
3273
3274 *portage-1.8.14 (04 Apr 2002)
3275
3276 04 Apr 2002; Geert Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> emerge:
3277 Fixed short options for --all, --safe and clean.
3278
3279 *portage-1.8.13 (04 Apr 2002)
3280
3281 04 Apr 2002; Geert Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> portage.py, emerge:
3282 Added emerge --all clean and emerge --safe unmerge.
3283 Made the counter updates atomic so that multiple merges can happen without
3284 risking counter clashes.
3285 Updated --help.
3286 Fixed short options bug that prevented two seperate short options to be
3287 specified successively.
3288
3289 *portage-1.8.12 (04 Apr 2002)
3290
3291 04 Apr 2002; Geert Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> portage.py, emerge:
3292 implemented "emerge clean" with oldrevs, oldversions and oldslots options for
3293 the make.conf/make.globals CLEANMODE variable.
3294
3295 03 Apr 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: Added an
3296 indentation fix to prevent merge from dying if a file attempts to install
3297 itself on top of an existing directory. Closes bug #1498.
3298
3299 *portage-1.8.11.1 (03 Apr 2002)
3300
3301 03 Apr 2002; Geert Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> portage.py: important fixes
3302 for movefile() -- changed the order of ownership / permissions settings since
3303 suid/guid bits were overwritten, added support back for 'ebuild config' since
3304 it was accidentally left out
3305
3306 *portage-1.8.11 (02 Apr 2002)
3307
3308 02 Apr 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: important fixes
3309 for movefile() -- ownership now preserved across filesystems, mv -f fallback
3310 for special files, other optimizations and robustness improvements. Important
3311 fixes all-round.
3312
3313 02 Apr 2002; Geert Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> emerge:
3314 fixed bad indentation of a part of the code that made unmerging multiple
3315 packages behave badly
3316
3317 *portage-1.8.10 (01 Apr 2002)
3318
3319 01 Apr 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> make.globals: removed USE
3320 settings from make.globals.
3321
3322 01 Apr 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: In trying to fix
3323 the glibc merge bug, we rewrote movefile() and it now runs blazingly fast. I
3324 also tweaked the code to remove the need for an ">>> Updating mtimes..."
3325 stage. This is all done dynamically now. *Much* faster. And hopefully
3326 solid for glibc upgraders.
3327
3328 *portage-1.8.9.4 (01 Apr 2002)
3329
3330 31 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: adapted
3331 movefile() which should preserves timestamps and ownership on files and
3332 symlinks it moves.
3333
3334 *portage-1.8.9.3 (31 Mar 2002)
3335
3336 31 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: promising
3337 rewrite of movefile() not only will probably fix glibc merge bug but also
3338 speeds up merging at least 20x! Calling "mv" for every file really make
3339 things super-slow!
3340
3341 *portage-1.8.9.2 (31 Mar 2002)
3342
3343 31 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: desperate attempt
3344 to fix movefile() bug... a hack really. glibc merges still dying.
3345
3346 *portage-1.8.9.1 (31 Mar 2002)
3347
3348 31 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: it appears that
3349 movefile() (using "/bin/mv") can still die if moving a new symlink on top of
3350 an existing library symlink. Upon failure, we now use a fallback mechanism
3351 to use "/bin/sln" to create the new symlink safely.
3352
3353 *portage-1.8.9 (30 Mar 2002)
3354
3355 30 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: tiny cosmetic
3356 fix for digest generation.
3357
3358 30 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: entries in the
3359 world profile will be ignored if at least one version of the package in
3360 question isn't already merged. Prevents "--update world" from remerging
3361 packages that have since been unmerged.
3362
3363 30 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> various: changing all
3364 references from /usr/bin/python to /usr/bin/python2.2.
3365
3366 30 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> db-update.py: moving this
3367 script here from FILESDIR.
3368
3369 30 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: stuff doesn't
3370 get added to the world profile if it is already an essential ("*") package in
3371 the system profile. Keeps things clean and flexible.
3372
3373 *portage-1.8.9_pre38 (30 Mar 2002)
3374
3375 30 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: resolve_key()
3376 didn't call load() on mapped virtuals, resulting in inconsistent resolution
3377 of virtual keys. Now fixed; thanks to woodchip for the bug report.
3378
3379 *portage-1.8.9_pre37 (30 Mar 2002)
3380
3381 30 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: specific
3382 provides (dev-lang/python-2.2) will be converted to their generic form
3383 (dev-lang/python) before being recorded.
3384
3385 *portage-1.8.9_pre36 (30 Mar 2002)
3386
3387 30 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py, emerge: new
3388 virtuals fixes and a db-upgrade.py script in the ebuild to solve another
3389 virtuals problem.
3390
3391 *portage-1.8.9_pre35 (29 Mar 2002)
3392
3393 29 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py, emerge: digest
3394 generation fixes; emerge --update will now update dependents even if the main
3395 package hasn't been updated. getdict() fix, fixing a traceback.
3396
3397 *portage-1.8.9_pre34 (28 Mar 2002)
3398
3399 28 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: Added an indent
3400 fix for the new virtuals code, eliminating a traceback. Tweaked digest handling,
3401 fixing a cosmetic error.
3402
3403 *portage-1.8.9_pre33 (28 Mar 2002)
3404
3405 28 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: tweaked digest
3406 creation in doebuild() to hopefully avoid creating digests twice. I hope I
3407 didn't break anything in the process.
3408
3409 28 Mar 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py, emerge: "emerge
3410 update" is now "emerge --update"; "world" added back. New world
3411 implementation that works like this ... if you type "emerge media-gfx/gimp",
3412 media-gfx/gimp will be added to the "world" favorites file in
3413 /var/cache/edb/world. This world file is added to the system profile in
3414 order to create the set of "world" packages to merge. You can manually put
3415 specific deps (for pinning) in /var/cache/edb/world and they won't get
3416 overwritten. To prevent a package that you specify on the emerge
3417 command-line from being added to the world profile, use the "--oneshot"
3418 option, which tells emerge that it should be merged once but not updated.
3419
3420 28 Mar 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: New virtuals
3421 implementation; new virtual info is recorded in /var/cache/edb/virtuals;
3422 virtuals data is created by merging the profile virtual info with the new
3423 edb/virtuals file. Note: We no longer add virtual package entries to
3424 /var/db/pkg. This change solves the bug where virtual files get auto-updated
3425 by pkg-update, and also solves the bug where doing an "emerge --update world"
3426 will cause ssmtp to be merged in order to satisfy the virtual/mta dep (which
3427 you already have satisfied by postfix, for example). Now, postfix will be
3428 updated if necessary, but that's it. :)
3429
3430 *portage-1.8.9_pre32 (22 Mar 2002)
3431
3432 22 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: fixed a bug
3433 related to scanning for available binary packages, which would cause emerge
3434 to die.
3435
3436 21 Mar 2002; Dan Armak <danarmak@gentoo.org> portage.py: added ECLASSDIR
3437 (=$PORTDIR/eclass) to settings exported by python side to bash side.
3438 ebuild.sh: remove ECLASSDIR setting to use the one now provided by
3439 portage.py. Also, clean inherit() and make it use debug-print().
3440
3441 *portage-1.8.9_pre31 (21 Mar 2002)
3442
3443 21 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: Added Dan
3444 Armak's patch to enable eclasses. :)
3445
3446 21 Mar 2002; Grant Goodyear <g2boojum@gentoo.org> portage.py:
3447 Added a drobbins patch to at line 469. Should fix emerge rsync
3448 problem when /etc/make.profile doesn't exist.
3449
3450 *portage-1.8.9_pre30 (20 Mar 2002)
3451
3452 20 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py, emerge: emerge
3453 --emptytree now works again and I added a new --nodeps option to emerge as
3454 well.
3455
3456 *portage-1.8.9_pre29 (20 Mar 2002)
3457
3458 20 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: CONTENTS files
3459 now record the correct path when ROOT!="/".
3460
3461 *portage-1.8.9_pre28 (20 Mar 2002)
3462
3463 20 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py, emerge: an
3464 /etc/make.profile dir is now optional and portage will work if it's missing
3465 or is a broken symlink.
3466
3467 20 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: fix load()
3468 method in packagetree() class.
3469
3470 *portage-1.8.9_pre27 (19 Mar 2002)
3471
3472 19 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py:
3473 /etc/make.profile/packages wasn't correctly masking core system packages;
3474 fixed.
3475
3476 *portage-1.8.9_pre26 (18 Mar 2002)
3477
3478 18 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: configuration
3479 settings don't get loaded from ${ROOT}/etc anymore, just /etc. This
3480 simplifies the creation of a new build image.
3481
3482 18 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: Don't expect a
3483 digest file if SRC_URI is set to "" or undefined.
3484
3485 18 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: RDEPEND was getting set
3486 to DEPEND even if there was an RDEPEND="" in the ebuild. This has now been
3487 fixed and RDEPEND will only get to DEPEND if RDEPEND has unset (not "unset
3488 or null", as it was before this fix.)
3489
3490 18 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: emerge: circular
3491 dependencies error will result in the digraph dependencies being printed to
3492 stdout, greatly simplifying debugging.
3493
3494 18 Mar 2002; Geert Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org>: src/sandbox/problems: Added
3495 several sample implementations to reproduce reported bugs.
3496
3497 18 Mar 2002; Geert Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org>: libsandbox.c: All paths are now
3498 checked for multiple successive slashes anywhere, this closes bug 827.
3499 Performance should be slightly improved for other apps on the system for who
3500 the sandbox is not turned on.
3501
3502 14 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: output.py: quick fix to
3503 turn off white color output -- not good for terminals with white background.
3504 This closes bug #1135.
3505
3506 11 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: Applied karltk's version
3507 information patch. Portage.py now contains version information, and this
3508 info is reported by "emerge --version". Thanks Karl! :)
3509
3510 *portage-1.8.9_pre25 (11 Mar 2002)
3511
3512 10 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py, emerge: roll
3513 back portagetree incremental db optimizations to fix an important bug (no
3514 package.mask calculations being done.) Emerge will now abort if a dependency
3515 can't be satisfied rather than printing just a warning.
3516
3517 *portage-1.8.9_pre24 (09 Mar 2002)
3518
3519 09 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: fixed missing
3520 "--clean" option so "--clean rsync" should work again. Also converted emerge
3521 to work with our new db layout (db objects are in the portage module now).
3522
3523 09 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: Added USE
3524 ordering, a concept envisioned by Vitaly Kushneriuk. The idea is to allow
3525 customization of how Portage resolves USE variables. The default is
3526 "env:conf:auto:defaults" (set in the USE_ORDER variable -- this default is
3527 now in make.globals but as always you should set your custom USE_ORDER in
3528 make.conf if desired.) So, my default, USE settings will be calculated as
3529 follows. The USE variables will be grabbed from the
3530 /etc/make.profile/make.defaults file (this is "defaults".) Then, the
3531 /etc/make.profile/use.defaults file will be consulted. This file lists (one
3532 per line) a USE variable and a corresponding dependency. If the dependency
3533 is satisfied, the USE variable is auto-enabled and added to our working list
3534 (this is "auto"). Then /etc/make.conf is consulted, so that the user has the
3535 option of force-enabling (with USE="foo") or force-disabling (with
3536 USE="-foo") any USE variables as desired (this is "conf".) Then, the
3537 environment is consulted, allowing easy modifications from the command-line
3538 (this is "env"). Also added is the ability for USE settings to be
3539 dynamically regenerated in an efficient way as packages are merged. So,
3540 right after xfree is emerged, the "X" use variable can be immediately
3541 auto-enabled. Thanks to Vitaly for providing the vision for this.
3542
3543 *portage-1.8.9_pre23 (08 Mar 2002)
3544
3545 09 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: our portage
3546 tree and /var/db/pkg tree now uses incremental caching rather than doing
3547 an exhaustive scan on startup. This should speed up this respective code
3548 by 2-30x depending on how many packages you're emerging. This involved
3549 quite a few changes to the code, and there could be some bugs, although I
3550 tried to be very careful. These changes could also break code that access
3551 internal .tree[] dictionaries directly.
3552
3553 08 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: SRC_URIs with
3554 USE-enabled ( ) clauses in them weren't working because I was iterating
3555 through multi-level lists without flatten()ing them. Now fixed.
3556
3557 07 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: We no longer
3558 depend upon a file being unmerged. We try to unlink during unmerge() in a
3559 "try" clause, with an exception for OSError. If the directory is immutable
3560 then Portage continues gracefully. This closes a bug reported by Verwilst --
3561 unmerging an old baselayout would die when it tried to delete /dev/shm.
3562 Fixed in Portage to eliminate these kinds of problems in the future.
3563
3564 *portage-1.8.9_pre22 (07 Mar 2002)
3565
3566 07 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: I had
3567 sys.exit() in doebuild()'s fetch section. Converted to "return 1" and
3568 "return 0" to be emerge --fetchonly friendly. Thanks to Dan Armak for the
3569 bug report.
3570
3571 *portage-1.8.9_pre21 (07 Mar 2002)
3572
3573 07 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: fixed symlink
3574 merge bug related to "safe" emerges. This should fix problems of Portage
3575 dying when merging certain things. I'm hoping that this fix will give us a
3576 solid merge implementation. It should. Thanks to Bart Verwilst for tracking
3577 down a merge problem that I could reproduce.
3578
3579 *portage-1.8.9_pre20 (06 Mar 2002)
3580
3581 06 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh, others: users
3582 can now forcefully disable stripping of their ebuild binaries by adding a
3583 RESTRICT="nostrip" to their ebuild. Additionally, the DEBUG variable has
3584 been renamed to DEBUGBUILD to prevent namespace collisions. This closes bug
3585 #868.
3586
3587 06 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py : Fixed a
3588 long-standing bug where the pkg_preinst() and pkg_postinst() functions being
3589 called came from the existing package ebuild in /var/db/pkg rather than the
3590 new ebuild being merged. pkg_prerm() and pkg_postrm() still use the ebuild
3591 in /var/db/pkg, which is correct. Thanks to Dan Armak for tracking down this
3592 bug.
3593
3594 *portage-1.8.9_pre19 (05 Mar 2002)
3595
3596 05 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py : Fixed two bugs
3597 reported by Dan Armak relating to incomplete (not missing) message digests.
3598 They should now get regenerated automatically is "digest" is in FEATURES and
3599 not confuse the fetch code.
3600
3601 *portage-1.8.9_pre18 (04 Mar 2002)
3602
3603 04 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py : Bug fix in
3604 dep_bestmatch(); rev comparison now works correctly and dep_bestmatch will
3605 properly handle 2-digit revisions in particular. This closes bug #952.
3606
3607 04 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py : Thanks to a
3608 bug report by Bruce Locke, the long-standing bug where symlinks with
3609 different mtimes would still get unmerged is now fixed. This allows glibc
3610 (of all things) to be unmerged safely. We needed this fix. Closes bug #964.
3611
3612 03 Mar 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py : KDEDIR ->
3613 KDEDIRS (fixing my typo)
3614
3615 *portage-1.8.9_pre17 (27 Feb 2002)
3616
3617 27 Feb 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge : --help
3618 documentation is now up-to-date; short options tweaked.
3619
3620 26 Feb 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py : Fixed an
3621 unmerge error caused by digests now being recorded in lowercase. unmerge now
3622 compensates for 100% backwards compatibility. Moved "continue" outside of
3623 "try" block since this is disallowed in Python. This fixes a python warning
3624 during fetch.
3625
3626 26 Feb 2002; Geert Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> bin/dohtml : Added support for
3627 installing .gif files too since quite some docs still ship with those instead
3628 of .jpg or .png.
3629
3630 *portage-1.8.9_pre16 (25 Feb 2002)
3631
3632 25 Feb 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge : emerge syntax
3633 changed back to "classic" style; replaced dots with spinner, did a major code
3634 cleanup and removed pieces that will be rewritten for 1.8.9 final. emerge
3635 documentation isn't up-to-date at all; I'm holding off on the --help rewrite
3636 until after 1.8.9 features have been finalized (soon!)
3637
3638 25 Feb 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> : Added RESTRICT variable
3639 to ebuilds. If RESTRICT="fetch" is set in the ebuild, it means that the
3640 files listed in SRC_URI are simply filenames and that the real files must be
3641 downloaded manually. This allows us to deal with realplayer, since
3642 overriding dyn_fetch is no longer an option now that we have the fetch code
3643 in python. Also added a cosmetic tweak to emerge during info file
3644 regeneration.
3645
3646 25 Feb 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> cnf/* : updated ${x} ->
3647 ${URI} in $FETCHCOMMAND.
3648
3649 24 Feb 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> Fixed another fetch bug
3650 where the download wouldn't cycle to alternate mirrors (it'd get stuck on
3651 the first download location)
3652
3653 *portage-1.8.9_pre15 (24 Feb 2002)
3654
3655 24 Feb 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: some fixing of
3656 the merge code; added automatic digest generation when "digest" is in
3657 FEATURES; made the fetch() code not depend on a pre-existing digest. This
3658 should fix all known digest/fetch issues.
3659
3660 *portage-1.8.9_pre14 (23 Feb 2002)
3661
3662 23 Feb 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: If you have a
3663 file that's hosted directly on our master ibiblio mirror, you can specify
3664 it in SRC_URI as "http://mirror/myfile.tar.bz2". "http://mirror" will be
3665 expanded to the first mirror defined in GENTOO_MIRRORS, or our master ibiblio
3666 mirror if no mirrors are defined. Groovy. This closes bug #627.
3667
3668 23 Feb 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> make.globals, emerge,
3669 portage.py: wget is no longer hardcoded; FETCHCOMMAND is enabled again, but
3670 uses ${FILE} and ${URI} instead of ${x} and ${y} now. Added download
3671 resuming, which requires the definition of RESUMECOMMAND (added to
3672 make.globals). Updated spawn() so that when it's called as spawn(foo,free=1)
3673 as an argument, sandboxing is turned off. Replaced all calls to
3674 os.system(foo) with spawn(foo,free=1), since os.system() messes with signal
3675 handling. Added a default SIGINT signal handler to portage.py so that ^C
3676 interrupts are handled correctly (portage will immediately exit with a return
3677 code of 1). This has been tested and works for ebuild and emerge. These
3678 additions should also close bug #407 and #760.
3679
3680 23 Feb 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: spython -> python
3681 fix; resolution of cvs merge conflict. Removed edepend assignment bug
3682 reintroduced in Geert's commit; added comment explaining why the new code is
3683 needed so it doesn't get removed again ;)
3684
3685 22 Feb 2002; Geert Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> emerge: removed spurious cvs
3686 conflict lines fixed bug in the cleanup code where different slots weren't
3687 handled too well
3688
3689 *portage-1.8.9_pre13 (22 Feb 2002)
3690
3691 22 Feb 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> various: fix /bin/sh
3692 symlink merge problems and massively simplified movefile() code. Added back
3693 some emerge code so that "emerge --search rsync" doesn't run rsync.
3694
3695 *portage 1.8.9_pre12 (22 Feb 2002)
3696
3697 22 Feb 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: everything
3698 should now generate *lowercase* md5sums, fixing problems with digest
3699 backwards compatibility.
3700
3701 22 Feb 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: changed
3702 position of digest generation call so that "ebuild digest" now works if the
3703 sources have not yet been downloaded.
3704
3705 *portage 1.8.9_pre11 (22 Feb 2002)
3706
3707 22 Feb 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: unmerging now
3708 works correctly.
3709
3710 *portage 1.8.9_pre10 (22 Feb 2002)
3711
3712 22 Feb 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: "emerge" didn't like the
3713 new portage.py (fixed); A merge database bug (fixed). Fixing the merge bug
3714 should also result in merges happening much faster than before, maybe up to 3
3715 times as fast. We no longer resolve symlinks when testing protection paths.
3716
3717 *portage 1.8.9_pre9 (21 Feb 2002)
3718
3719 21 Feb 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: moved entirety of Portage
3720 download/digest code from ebuild.sh (bash) to portage.py (python). No
3721 support for custom FETCHCOMMANDs yet, but that's coming soon. Good news is
3722 that it appears to work well and allowed some cleanups and optimizations to
3723 doebuild(). SYNC support added. See cnf/make.conf for more info --
3724 basically, "emerge rsync" (now callable via "emerge sync" as well) supports a
3725 configurable "Portage server" that begins either with "rsync://" or "cvs://".
3726 "emerge sync" is now not only a clean front-end, but a configurable front-end
3727 to the Portage update process. I also removed dependency checking from
3728 'ebuild'. This allowed me to removed some redundant code from portage.py,
3729 and seemed fine to do since 'ebuild' is more and more becoming a low-level
3730 developer tool.
3731
3732 21 Feb 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: rewrite of cumulative USE
3733 setting code so that the new FEATURES (what used to be called MAINTAINER) is
3734 now cumulative and supports "-" and "-*" options. FEATURES is expanded using
3735 all config files, while USE ignores make.globals but uses everything else.
3736 Optimization of a couple parts of doebuild(). Upgraded expandpath() and used
3737 it in one place where it was removed accidentally (in the new merge code.)
3738 Master category list is now stored externally in
3739 ${PORTDIR}/profiles/categories for ease of maintenance.
3740
3741 21 Feb 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge: now supports the
3742 EMERGE_OPTS make.conf variable for enabling emerge options by default.
3743 Closes bug #605.
3744
3745 21 Feb 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: dep_match() now
3746 works with * deps (again? Looks like the code got ripped out somehow); this
3747 closes bug #490.
3748
3749 21 Feb 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> global change from
3750 "spython" -> "python", now that Portage is slick enough to update shared
3751 libraries correctly.
3752
3753 21 Feb 2002; Grant Goodyear <g2boojum@gentoo.org> bin/chkcontents,
3754 man/chkcontents.1: New script to compare what's in a package's CONTENTS file
3755 with what's actually on the filesystem. Useful for discovering that a
3756 package "collision" has occurred.
3757
3758 21 Feb 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh, portage.py:
3759 Dependencies should be no longer checked during the "unpack" stage. This
3760 closes bug #231. Added the $KV kernel version variable to ebuild.sh so that
3761 it's available for all ebuilds. This closes bug #599.
3762
3763 21 Feb 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh: S now defaults
3764 to ${WORKDIR}/${P} if it isn't defined. That's right. Defining S is now
3765 optional :) This should eliminate around 1000 lines from our ports tree.
3766
3767 20 Feb 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py: Fixed some
3768 major bugs in the new merge/config protect code. Merging and config
3769 protection should now work.
3770
3771 18 Feb 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py, emerge,
3772 ebuild.sh : Rewrote merge code. Should merge symlinks only *after* the
3773 target has been merged (needs testing). Added lots of comments. Split
3774 dblink.merge() into 2 new functions -- .walktree() and .mergeme().
3775 Cleaned/optimized merging a good deal. Added special "-*" USE variable to
3776 unset *all* USE variables defined up until that point.
3777
3778 18 Feb 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py, emerge,
3779 ebuild.sh : Fixed USE bug (config.reset() threw away our cumulative USE),
3780 streamlined turbo dep calculations by moving edb cache entry creation to
3781 ebuild.sh. Started coding new dblink.merge() method that should be much
3782 cleaner, faster and merge symlinks safely.
3783
3784 17 Feb 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py : Added
3785 cumulative USE variable support. The final USE var is calculated
3786 cumulatively starting with make.profile, then make.conf, and then the
3787 environment. Any "-foo" option in USE will turn off a previously-defined USE
3788 setting. So, if you want to use the profile-default USE settings except turn
3789 "X" off, you add 'USE="-X"' to /etc/make.conf and that's it. This greatly
3790 simplifies USE variable maintenance since developers can now easily add new
3791 USE variables that default to 'on'. Simply add the USE variable and then add
3792 it to make.profile. It will then be included in everyone's USE variables
3793 automatically unless they explicitly "-newvar" in /etc/make.conf or in the
3794 local environment. This also enables easy one-shot disabling of USE
3795 variables. For example, to merge xchat without GNOME support (when "gnome"
3796 is in your /etc/make.conf USE variable), simply type "USE="-gnome" emerge
3797 net-irc/xchat". This is a lot easier than temporarily tweaking
3798 /etc/make.conf.
3799
3800 17 Feb 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge : Added a quick hack
3801 to cache ebuild dependency info using extended attributes on XFS filesystems.
3802 Gives a factor of 10 speedup for dependency calculations. Will look into a
3803 generic caching solution that should offer similar performance increases on
3804 all filesystems. Note: the fact that this hack is on CVS means that emerge
3805 is currently in a hyper-experimental state and shouldn't be used right now.
3806
3807 16 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> emerge : added support for 'emerge
3808 cat/pkg-version' instead of always having to require 'emerge cat/pkg'
3809
3810 15 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> emerge : reimplemented the display
3811 of cleaned packages to clearly show all versions that are about to be removed
3812 and which versions are going to stay
3813
3814 13 Feb 2002; D.Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge :
3815 added --emptytree option
3816
3817 13 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> emerge, portage.py :
3818 fixed little bug where emerge --clean rsync wasn't correctly handled anymore
3819 implemented all new functionalities of emerge --clean, this adds --slots,
3820 --versions and --all options together with world and system modes
3821
3822 12 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> emerge, portage.py :
3823 changed emerge --zap to emerge --clean
3824 removed parts of the already implemented slots functionality to be able to
3825 fall back to a more flexible implementation. Binary compatible slots will now
3826 mostly influence emerge during the --clean operation
3827
3828 12 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> emerge :
3829 added fallback check in case UNMERGE_DELAY hasn't been defined in
3830 make.globals or make.conf
3831
3832 *portage 1.8.9_pre8 (18 Feb 2002)
3833
3834 12 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> emerge :
3835 changed the rebuild code to use depgraph instead, dramatically reducing code
3836 duplication
3837
3838 11 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> emerge :
3839 changed indentation of a code part that wasn't at the right level. It got the
3840 count of the non slot packages during --zap completely wrong
3841
3842 *portage 1.8.9_pre7 (11 Feb 2002)
3843
3844 11 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> portage.py :
3845 fixed bug in packagetree.dep_match() where a ~ dependency is returned as a
3846 string instead of as a list
3847
3848 11 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> emerge :
3849 - removed support for --all and world in 'emerge --unmerge', by default now
3850 all matching packages are removed since with the new slots functionality
3851 old package versions should not exists anymore
3852 - colored package name red too when a blocking package is found during
3853 pretend operation
3854 - changed emerge invocation arguments to be in a new universal interface
3855 format this has been decided to be :
3856 'emerge --action --option --option [packageset]'
3857 some features however don't respect this, but that's since they are not
3858 package installation related and are easier to use as straight commands
3859 eg: emerge rsync
3860 - added UNMERGE_DELAY var to make.globals and support it in emerge to obtain
3861 the number of seconds to wait
3862 - support for NOCOLOR="yes" as wel as NOCOLOR="true"
3863 - major speedups for emerge -search
3864 - added formatted package descriptions of the matches from emerge --search
3865 that nicely wrap at 80 chars
3866 - rewrote retrieval of package descriptions to support descriptions that are
3867 specified on multiple lines
3868 - added support for 'noslot' to --zap, --update and --rebuild
3869
3870 11 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> sandbox.c, libsandbox.c :
3871 added checks to see if the files where information is written to are really
3872 regular files and not symlinks
3873
3874 *portage 1.8.9_pre6 (10 Feb 2002)
3875
3876 10 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> emerge :
3877 added support for 'emerge --unmerge world' which removes all old package
3878 versions from the system
3879 made 'emerge --unmerge' take binary compatibility slots into account, this
3880 prevents that packages with different versions but also different slots, are
3881 being unmerged
3882 added support for "--verbose" in "emerge rebuild" and "emerge world" to
3883 provide details about packages that aren't in the local tree anymore and to
3884 notify the user about which packages don't support slots
3885
3886 9 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> emerge :
3887 added support for the rebuild mode which rebuilds all the packages on your
3888 system for which a corresponding package could be found in to portage tree
3889
3890 9 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> portage.py :
3891 renamed getEbuildPaths() or vartree to getebuildpaths()
3892 fixed bug in the merging of binary packages
3893
3894 7 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> xpack.py :
3895 added additional argument to tbz2.getfile() which allows default content to
3896 be provided when the requested file couldn't be found in the tbz2 archive
3897
3898 7 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh :
3899 added SLOT information as the third entry in the temporary deps file that is
3900 generated during ebuild depend,
3901
3902 7 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> portage.py :
3903 obtain SLOT information from the deps file instead of using the slotgrab()
3904 function, removed slotgrab() function, updated some comments
3905
3906 7 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> emerge :
3907 added SLOT information to the generated edepend var for binary packages
3908
3909 *portage 1.8.9_pre5 (6 Feb 2002)
3910
3911 6 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> portage.py :
3912 fixed bugs where the old instance wasn't unmerged correctly if slots are
3913 identical, but ebuild version numbers not
3914
3915 6 Feb 2002; Grant Goodyear <g2boojum@gentoo.org> cnf/make.conf :
3916 Copied proxy lines from make.globals (bug 431).
3917
3918 6 Feb 2002; Vitaly Kushneriuk <vitaly@gentoo.org> portage.py :
3919 added missing SLOT param to merge(...).
3920
3921 *portage 1.8.9_pre4 (6 Feb 2002)
3922
3923 6 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> portage.py :
3924 fixed some bugs in the handling of PROVIDES and virtual packages together
3925 with slots, they used code that wasn't upudated to the new dblink constructor
3926 virtuals now use "" as slot, resulting in normally to same behaviour as what
3927 has been done before.
3928
3929 5 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> emerge :
3930 sorted the packages to unmerge since this makes package names with revision
3931 endings appear before plain version numbers. This makes the unmerge code
3932 first remove the old and non slot aware packages before removing the newer
3933 alternative which is in fact exactly the same apart from the revision
3934 identifier.
3935
3936 *portage 1.8.9_pre3 (5 Feb 2002)
3937
3938 5 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> portage.py :
3939 only let the backward compatibility algorithm kick in during unmerge since
3940 it's impossible to correctly detect is in general.
3941
3942 *portage 1.8.9_pre2 (5 Feb 2002)
3943
3944 5 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> portage.py :
3945 fixed bug in the backward compatibility algorithm
3946
3947 *portage 1.8.9_pre1 (5 Feb 2002)
3948
3949 4 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh, emerge, portage.py :
3950 added binary compatibility slots, this also contains additional code to keep
3951 the unmerging of packages backwards compatible.
3952
3953 4 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> portage.py :
3954 added back support for the "ebuild help" command which seems to have
3955 disappeared somewhere along the updates
3956
3957 4 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> make.conf, make.globals :
3958 added description and default entry for the imlib USE variable
3959 added flag to prozilla to disable prozilla's waiting for a user's keypress
3960 when a failure occurs
3961
3962 4 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> output.py :
3963 bugfix, write read() function instead of red(), doh !
3964
3965 4 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> emerge, portage.py :
3966 implemented the ! dependency which prevents incompatible packages to be
3967 installed on the same system at the same time
3968
3969 4 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> emerge :
3970 most emerge invocation options now have alternative short flags
3971
3972 4 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> emerge :
3973 emerge now doesn't unmerge the last version of an installed version by
3974 default anymore, to really remove all instanced of packages the --all flag
3975 has to be used, the --safe flag is deprecated
3976
3977 3 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> output.py, emerge,make.globals :
3978 all output can now be turned to black and white by using the functions in
3979 output.py, this determines the mode by checking to NOCOLOR variable in
3980 make.conf or make.globals
3981
3982 3 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> emerge :
3983 made it possible to run emerge --help and --search as non root
3984
3985 *portage 1.8.8-r1 (1 Feb 2002)
3986
3987 1 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> portage.py, ebuild.sh, ebuild.5 :
3988 added support for a pkg_setup() function which is executed before anything
3989 else and can be typically used for package configuration actions or required
3990 system checks
3991
3992 1 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> portage.py :
3993 implemented the noauto MAINTAINER flags for all relevant ebuild commands
3994
3995 1 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> portage.py :
3996 make env-update disregard backup files
3997
3998 1 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> emerge :
3999 added --pretend support instead of interactively asking to proceed,
4000 also added a delay before unmerging though to be sure
4001
4002 *portage 1.8.8 (1 Feb 2002)
4003
4004 1 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> emerge :
4005 added --safe switch to complement the --unmerge option
4006
4007 1 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> portage.py :
4008 rewrote the packagename without category support to also graceously handle
4009 deps specifiers at the beginning, this shouldn't be used in the ebuilds, but
4010 are very handy when using emerge --unmerge
4011
4012 1 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> emerge :
4013 added emerge --unmerge support
4014
4015 1 Feb 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> portage.py :
4016 added packagename without category support in the dep_match function
4017
4018 *portage 1.8.7 (30 Jan 2002)
4019
4020 30 Jan 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> portage.py :
4021 integrated and slightly adapted Brent Rahn's code to support package names
4022 without category
4023
4024 30 Jan 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh :
4025 integrated and fixed Azarah's patch to fix the wrongly generated archive size
4026 in the digests
4027
4028 *portage 1.8.6-r3 (28 Jan 2002)
4029
4030 28 Jan 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> portage.py :
4031 disabled warnings about non existant config file paths
4032
4033 28 Jan 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> emerge :
4034 added verwilst pkgsearch code, which was turned into a seperate class and
4035 refactored for clarity and execution speed
4036
4037 28 Jan 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> portage.py :
4038 renamed _xxx vars to _prepart in Vitaly's code addition
4039
4040 *portage 1.8.6-r2 (27 Jan 2002)
4041
4042 24 Jan 2002; Vitaly Kushneriuk <vitaly@gentoo.org> portage.py :
4043 Fixed version compare code Also added test script to test future versions.
4044
4045 *portage 1.8.6-r1 (24 Jan 2002)
4046
4047 24 Jan 2002; Karl Trygve Kalleberg <karltk@gentoo.org> dojar:
4048 Fixed typos.
4049
4050 *portage 1.8.6 (23 Jan 2002)
4051
4052 22 Jan 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> libsandbox.c :
4053 added an additional check for SANDBOX_ON to optimize the speed in the execvp
4054 function call. Also removed error messages being printed when the PATH var
4055 isn't set.
4056
4057 20 Jan 2002; Karl Trygve Kalleberg <karltk@gentoo.org> dojar :
4058 added dojar shell command as a java JAR handler
4059
4060 17 Jan 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> :
4061 The package chosen by "emerge sys-apps/shadow" now matches that chosen in an
4062 emerge update or emerge system. I forgot to add some "*" dep code to the
4063 dep_nomatch() method; this is now fixed.
4064
4065 *portage 1.8.5 (13 Jan 2002)
4066
4067 13 Jan 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> ebuilds.sh, portage.py:
4068 added fine grained maintainer settings
4069
4070 *portage 1.8.4 (13 Jan 2002)
4071
4072 12 Jan 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> :
4073 "emerge sys-apps/bash/" now works. (trailing "/" stripped to make
4074 tab-completion users happy) This fixes bug #119
4075
4076 12 Jan 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> :
4077 Portage should no longer bomb out if the current working directory doesn't
4078 exist (has been deleted from underneath).
4079
4080 12 Jan 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> :
4081 added "--world" option for "emerge update". This tells Portage to update
4082 the base system *as well as* upgrade any packages that are currently
4083 installed but have new versions available. This is your standard full system
4084 update command. This fixes bug #122
4085
4086 12 Jan 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> :
4087 Added an expandpath() cache which speeds up merging dramatically.
4088
4089 *portage 1.8.3 (11 Jan 2002)
4090
4091 11 Jan 2002; Mikael Hallendal <hallski@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh:
4092 added functions econf and einstall. Also made src_compile having a default
4093 implementation.
4094
4095 *portage 1.8.2 (07 Jan 2002)
4096
4097 07 Jan 2002; G.Bevin <gbevin@gentoo.org> :
4098 sandbox included in portage
4099
4100 *portage 1.8.1 (30 Dec 2001)
4101
4102 29 Dec 2001; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> :
4103 "emerge update" is now functional! Although the algorithm really should be
4104 sound, it is still considered in testing since we may need to tweak some
4105 dependencies.
4106
4107 27 Dec 2001; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> :
4108 Removed objprelink from the default USE variable.
4109
4110 *portage 1.8.0 (22 Dec 2001)
4111
4112 22 Dec 2001; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> :
4113 I messed up the "transparent .so library" update. Included is the correct
4114 fix, which seems to allow glibc to update on my system without any tricks.
4115 I just merged a new glibc while in X, without using any of glibc's old
4116 pkg_postinst/pkg_preinst hacks.
4117
4118 21 Dec 2001; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> make.defaults.5, make.conf.5 :
4119 Moved make.defaults.5 to make.conf.5 and updated contents.
4120
4121 *portage 1.7.8 (21 Dec 2001)
4122
4123 21 Dec 2001; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py :
4124 ebuild install doesn't throw away the compile directory if ebuild has been
4125 changed and MAINTAINER is set; we now use mv -f to move files into location
4126 on the filesystem, making our library install method even more robust. It
4127 should now be totally safe to upgrade glibc while in X and playing music
4128 with xmms and surfing the Web and compiling 20 applications at once :)
4129
4130 * portage 1.7.7 (14 Dec 2001)
4131
4132 14 Dec 2001; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>: portage.py :
4133 movefile() now unlink()s the destination file first which solves shared
4134 library install problems.
4135
4136 * portage 1.7.6 (13 Dec 2001)
4137
4138 10 Dec 2001; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py :
4139 env_update() now generates an /etc/csh.env file in csh shell format.
4140
4141 * portage 1.7.5 (13 Dec 2001)
4142
4143 10 Dec 2001; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py :
4144 added a little fix so a ~ dep isn't satisfied by a *much* later installed
4145 version; i.e. ~media-libs/freetype-1.3.1 satisfied by
4146 media-libs/freetype-2.0.5 being installed.
4147
4148 30 Nov 2001; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> ebuild :
4149 added a KeyboardInterrupt handler so ^C'ing a running ebuild process doesn't
4150 produce a Python traceback.
4151
4152 * portage 1.7.4 (29 Nov 2001)
4153
4154 29 Nov 2001; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py :
4155 removed an unnecessary quirk in the code preventing virtual packages from
4156 being in any other category but "virtual".
4157
4158 25 Nov 2001; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> emerge :
4159 info file detection code has been improved.
4160
4161 * portage 1.7.3 (20 Nov 2001)
4162
4163 20 Nov 2001; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> pdb, pdb.cgi, xpak :
4164 used /usr/bin/python instead of /usr/bin/spython. Fixed.
4165
4166 * portage 1.7.2 (13 Nov 2001)
4167
4168 13 Nov 2001; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org> :
4169 emake will now try to build in parallel, and if it fails, will retry in
4170 non-parallel mode.
4171
4172 13 Nov 2001; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> ebuild.sh :
4173 an ebuild that used an archive with a name that was part of another archive
4174 would cause Portage to mess up the digest check. No longer.
4175
4176 31 Oct 2001; Donny Davies <woodchip@gentoo.org> make.conf, make.globals :
4177 comments about merging the fetch programs before trying to use them.
4178
4179 * portage 1.7.1 (30 Oct 2001)
4180
4181 30 Oct 2001; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py :
4182 I accidentally broke "=" deps by being sloppy when I added "*" deps. Trivial
4183 fix applied.
4184
4185 * portage 1.7 (29 Oct 2001)
4186
4187 29 Oct 2001; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py :
4188 strange typo fix in the empty() digraph method.
4189
4190 * portage 1.6.12 (29 Oct 2001)
4191
4192 29 Oct 2001; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py :
4193 "*" deps now implemented. "=sys/foo-1*" matches the latest 1.x version/rev of
4194 sys/foo, but will not match a 2.x version.
4195
4196 26 Oct 2001; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org> portage.py :
4197 various new categories added.
4198
4199 Portage 1.6.11, released 18 Oct 2001
4200 ====================================
4201
4202 *portage.py; device nodes are now not unmerged at all.
4203
4204
4205 Portage 1.6.10, released 18 Oct 2001
4206 ===================================
4207
4208 *ebuild.sh: A and AA fix; now any A="foo" lines in the ebuild are ignored,
4209 allowing ebuilds with them to continue working.
4210
4211 *portage.py: remove gnome-apps, gnome-office, gnome-libs, add gnome-extra
4212 categories.
4213
4214 *ebuild.sh, portage.py: You can now use USE variables in SRC_URI to
4215 conditionally include archives. In MAINTAINER mode, all archives are
4216 automatically included so that maintainers can check SRC_URIs and also
4217 generate complete digests. A new file-based DEPEND and RDEPEND-passing
4218 mechanism has been added.
4219
4220 *ebuild.sh Now adds filesize to the digest files
4221
4222 Portage 1.6.9, released 15 Sep 2001
4223 ===================================
4224
4225 *portage.py
4226 unmerge() now does not touch device nodes. Unlinking them or touching them
4227 in any way is bad practice.
4228
4229
4230 Portage 1.6.8, released 12 Sep 2001
4231 ===================================
4232
4233 *portage.py
4234 movefile() will now unlink() destfile if it is a symlink. Should fix
4235 problems where file gets created at symlink target rather than replacing
4236 the symlink.
4237
4238 *queryhost.sh (agriffis)
4239 Parallel pinging and other fixes.
4240
4241 Portage 1.6.7, released 05 Sep 2001
4242 ===================================
4243
4244 *portage.py
4245 (last-minute fix)
4246 CONFIG_PROTECT unmerge protection is now observed for symlinks, fifos and
4247 device nodes.
4248
4249 *portage.py
4250 Fixes for unmerging CONFIG_PROTECTed files. Protected files are now *not*
4251 unlinked from the filesystem. Messier but safer, and simplifies package
4252 upgrades.
4253
4254 *emerge
4255 Emerge output cleanups for GNU info directory generation. New --verbose
4256 mode; new CONFIG_PROTECT scanning feature to let people know when there are
4257 config files to be updated. New "--help config" docs to explain how to
4258 do it.
4259
4260 Portage 1.6.6, released 01 Sep 2001
4261 ====================================
4262
4263 *portage.py
4264 Upgraded directory merging over existing objects. Existing symlinks that
4265 point to existing directories will be kept and used as is; directories will
4266 be used as-is; any other objects (broken symlinks, files) will be copied
4267 to origfilename.backup and a ne directory will be created in its place.
4268
4269 Portage 1.6.5, released 31 Aug 2001
4270 ====================================
4271
4272 *emerge
4273 Fixes for handling multiple ebuilds, packages and/or dependencies on
4274 the command-line.
4275
4276 *portage.py
4277 An optimization to the digraph class so that the firstzero() method finds
4278 matches in close to the order that keys were added to the digraph.
