22 nattfodd 1.5 The project provides coverage for Gentoo specific issues associated with
23     various programming languages that can be found in portage. Right now the
24     top level is mostly a placeholder for all the individual subprojects. However
25     common initiatives covering the topic are wellcome! Everybody interested is
26     invited to take a look at the
27     <uri link="https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=151118">bug #151118</uri>
28     and take part in discussion.

33     The overal goal is to provide necessary resources supporting "The Gentoo
34     Way" of dealing with programming environments. That is, flexible setup
35     and, where it makes sense, coexisting multiple versions/realizations of
36     compilers with an easy way to switch between those, while automating
37     mundane tasks.

41     Often it happens that multiple compiler suits can be used to compile
42     existing libraries. However the resulting libs are usually ABI
43     incompatible, meaning that code utilizing these libs should be compiled
44     with the same compiler. This situation can be further complicated by
45     interdependencies between the provided libs. To address this situation it
46     is necessary to introduce some kind of "ABI tracking" ability. Ideally
47     this would be done by providing some extra dependency info and having
48     portage deal with it. However this requires support on the portage side
49     and as it is not going to happen soon. There is a discussion under way on
50     how this can be done now. Those interested please take a look at <uri
51     link="https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=151343">bug
52     #151343</uri>.
53     </p>
55     <p>
56     Another issue common to multiple language implementations is that quite a
57     few of them have a compiler that is a gcc frontend. As such their build
58     procedure is quite similar and so it would make sense to work on a common
59     eclass, possibly even combining everything with toolchain.eclass. The
60     affected compilers that I had to deal with are: gpc (Pascal, in portage),
61     gdc (D, not in portage but has may interested users) and gnat (Ada). The
62     last one in fact is further subdivided into gnat-gcc for version produced
63     by FSF and gnat-gpl produced by AdaCore. These gnat versions have a
64     proper eclass common to all of them, and thus other compilers can be based
65     on that one.
