311 liquidx 1.1 <p>There is currently no central repository for scripts that are useful
312     in administering a Gentoo system. This GLEP proposes a way to deal
313     with this issue.</p>

320     <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id4" id="motivation" name="motivation">Motivation</a></h1>
321 liquidx 1.1 <p>There are many small tasks on a Gentoo system that can be made much
322     easier and fault-proof by scripting. However, not everyone has the
323     experience to write such scripts; those that do have the choice of
324     tracking down scripts on developer's webpages or with a search engine,
325     or writing them themselves, often duplicating effort that has been
326     already done by other people.</p>
327 g2boojum 1.5 <p>A better solution would be to have a repository of these scripts on
328 liquidx 1.2 www.gentoo.org.</p>

331     <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id5" id="specification" name="specification">Specification</a></h1>
332     <p>A <a class="reference" href="mailto:scripts&#64;gentoo.org">scripts&#64;gentoo.org</a> email alias would be setup and forwarded to the team that
333     will accept and publish these scripts to the website. The team will need
334     access to a portion of the website, but just enough to add the scripts, and
335     update links from the main &quot;scripts&quot; page. I would propose it be a
336     subproject of the tools or base top level project. The scripts team would
337     need commit access to gentoo/xml/htdocs/proj/en/[base|tools]/scripts/.It
338 liquidx 1.1 shouldn't increase the load on gentoo.org significantly.</p>
339 g2boojum 1.5 <p>The scripts should be divided by type of task, for example sysadmin,
340 liquidx 1.2 gentooadmin, misc, and internally well-commented. If there are enough then
341     it might be appropriate to have a search interface.</p>

344     <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id6" id="rationale" name="rationale">Rationale</a></h1>
345 liquidx 1.1 <p>A repository on gentoo.org would address the problem of not having a
346     central point where all the scripts reside; and as gentoo.org is
347     trusted by most gentoo users, it would also solve the problem of
348     running scripts without knowing their exact effect. Further trust
349     could be generated by having developers sign their scripts and
350     uploading the signatures in parallel.</p>
351     <p>Periodically, a snapshot could be taken of the repository, the scripts
352     QA'd, and a package made and distributed.</p>
353     <p>Having a well-publicised script repository would also ease major
354     changes to the distribution, and could be a first line of defence to
355     provide workarounds for security problems in packages.</p>
