312 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id1" id="abstract" name="abstract">Abstract</a></h1>
313 <p>Gentoo's portage tree attempts to provide a self contained, easy to use, and
314 automatic installation procedure for as many packages as can be maintained by
315 developers.</p>
316 <p>This GLEP proposes allowing non-core Gentoo developers to be considered as
317 ebuild maintainers sponsored via a core Gentoo developer. This system will
318 allow more ebuilds to be available in portage with active maintainers for
319 those ebuilds.</p>
320 <p>This GLEP only applies to EBUILD based bugs that contain a request for a
321 package to be committed or version bumped within portage.</p>
322 </div>
323 <div class="section">
324 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id2" id="motivation" name="motivation">Motivation</a></h1>
325 <p>As of the first draft of this GLEP, there are 1387 EBUILD bug requests in
326 Gentoo's bugzilla database. Many of these requests contain ebuilds that
327 have been submitted by the bug reporter and are simply awaiting a Gentoo
328 developer to sponsor the submittal of the ebuild.</p>
329 </div>
330 <div class="section">
331 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id3" id="rationale" name="rationale">Rationale</a></h1>
332 <p>Gentoo's portage tree already contains the most popular ebuilds for packages
333 available today. Many teams exist that are responsible for maintaining these
334 core ebuilds in the portage tree. But, for ebuilds that are not as commonly
335 used, there is no good focal point upon which to rest these ebuilds.</p>
336 <p>For example, any submitted ebuild that is a KDE application gets routed to the
337 KDE team. However, the KDE team may be unfamiliar with the submitted ebuild.
338 A new graphical MySQL editor may be submitted to the MYSQL team, but none of
339 the members of that team may be familiar or have the desire to learn a new
340 program to submit it to portage.</p>
341 <p>We want to be able to provide for as many ebuilds in portage as feasible and
342 make sure that all ebuilds have some person who is responsible for
343 maintenance.</p>
344 </div>
345 <div class="section">
346 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id4" id="backwards-compatibility" name="backwards-compatibility">Backwards Compatibility</a></h1>
347 <p>No current policies exist that interfere with this document.</p>
348 </div>
349 <div class="section">
350 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id5" id="implementation" name="implementation">Implementation</a></h1>
351 <p>Incoming ebuild bug reports should continue to be processed as normal.</p>
352 <p>Bug reports that <em>do not</em> contain an attached ebuild should be marked as
353 NEEDINFO. A message asking the user to create and submit an ebuild should be
354 attached to the bug.</p>
355 <p>Bug reports that <em>do</em> have an attached ebuild should be responded to with
356 a message asking if the reporter agrees to provide maintence and support for
357 the ebuild and package.</p>
358 <p>If a reporter <em>does not</em> agree to provide package maintence, the bug report
359 should be marked WONTFIX.</p>
360 <p>If a reporter <em>does</em> agree to provide package support, the ebuild should
361 be added to portage with a note in the ChangeLog that the reporter is
362 considered the maintainer of that particular ebuild.</p>
363 <p>Any incoming bug reports that are related to this ebuild should continue to
364 get processed as normal. The team that the ebuild goes to should then CC the
365 author of the ebuild. Optionally, if a docs-team member has prior knowledge
366 that the ebuild is externally maintained, he/she can add that person to the CC
367 list.</p>
368 </div>
369 <div class="section">
370 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id6" id="security" name="security">Security</a></h1>
371 <p><strong>At the very least</strong>, all ebuilds must be looked over by the developer
372 handling the commit.</p>
373 <p>In no case should a submitted digest file be used. The developer is
374 responsible for creating the digest file based on an actual download of the
375 source code.</p>
376 <p>Potential breaches in security can still exist, however. The developer
377 handling the installation should take every step to ensure that no ebuild,
378 package, or other files have been compromised.</p>
379 </div>
380 <div class="section">
381 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id7" id="future" name="future">Future</a></h1>
382 <p>Current proposals to rethink Gentoo portage and bug handling (a.k.a Herds) are
383 still in negotiation. It is the intention of the author of this GLEP to evolve
384 the concept of this GLEP as the Herds concept matures and stabilizes.</p>
