312 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id5" id="abstract" name="abstract">Abstract</a></h1>
313 <p>As the latest development in Gentoo and Portage added the metadata.xml file
314 to each package, which provides information about the package and it's
315 maintainers, this GLEP proposes to extend this format in order to simplify
316 the .ebuild format.</p>

323 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id7" id="motivation" name="motivation">Motivation</a></h1>
324 <p>The metadata.xml <a class="footnote-reference" href="#id4" id="id1" name="id1">[1]</a> standard was accepted and it already contains some
325 information about the packages (longdescription).</p>
326 </div>
327 <div class="section">
328 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id8" id="specification" name="specification">Specification</a></h1>
329 <p>Add the tags &lt;description&gt; &lt;homepage&gt; &lt;license&gt; to the metadata.xml <a class="footnote-reference" href="#id4" id="id2" name="id2">[1]</a> and
330 remove them from the .ebuild files. All ebuilds and the emerge -S feature
331 have to be changed to use the new format.</p>
332 </div>
333 <div class="section">
334 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id9" id="rationale" name="rationale">Rationale</a></h1>
335 <p>The three tags description, homepage and license are mostly the same in all
336 versions of an ebuild, but they must be added to each version. In order to
337 simplify the .ebuild format they can be moved to the new metadata.xml <a class="footnote-reference" href="#id4" id="id3" name="id3">[1]</a> file.
338 This would also allow different descriptions for different languages (lang
339 attribute) and there are no problems when a programm changes it license
340 (restrict attribute).</p>
341 </div>
342 <div class="section">
343 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id10" id="backwards-compatibility" name="backwards-compatibility">Backwards Compatibility</a></h1>
344 <p>As it will take some time to do the changes on every ebuild, portage should still
345 support the old format for some time.</p>
