+# ChangeLog for <CATEGORY>/<PACKAGE_NAME>
+# Copyright 1999-2009 Gentoo Foundation; Distributed under the GPL v2
+# $Header: $
+ DD MMM YYYY; YOUR_NAME <YOUR_EMAIL> changed_file1, changed_file2 :
+ Initial import. Ebuild submitted by submitter_name <submitter_email>.
+ Note that the "changed_file" listing is optional if you are simply bumping
+ the rev of the ebuild and are only making changes to the .ebuild file
+ itself. Also note that we now have a single unified paragraph rather than
+ having the first line separated from the rest by a newline. Everything
+ should be in one block like this. (note by drobbins, 16 Jul 2002)
+ DD MMM YYYY; YOUR_NAME <YOUR_EMAIL> changed_file1, changed_file2: this is
+ an earlier ChangeLog entry.
+-- Explanation of ChangeLog format:
+ ***************************************************************************
+ THIS IS IMPORTANT: The ChangeLog format is a *chronological* account of all
+ changes made to a set of ebuilds. That means that the most recent ChangeLog
+ entry *always* goes at the top of the file. More explanation below.
+ ***************************************************************************
+ ***************************************************************************
+ ANOTHER IMPORTANT NOTE: There are some ChangeLogs that don't follow this
+ format and organize all changes under the "correct" "*" entry. This is not
+ correct. However, rather than making a concerted effort to fix these
+ ChangeLogs, we should spend our energy defining a comprehensive and strict
+ XML-based ChangeLog format which we then migrate to. But for any entries to
+ any ChangeLog that *you* make, please make sure to always add entries to the
+ top of the file like a good boy/girl. Even do this if it's clear that you're
+ adding an entry to a b0rked ChangeLog.
+ ***************************************************************************
+ This changelog is targeted to users. This means that the comments should be
+ well explained and written in clean English.
+ Every new version or revision of the package should be marked by a '*'
+ separator line as above to indicate where in the chronology it was first
+ added to our CVS tree. Any changes since the last revision, really _any
+ changes at all_ have to be added to the top of the file, underneath the
+ initial copyright and cvs header comments, in exactly the same format as this
+ comment. If you are modifying older ebuilds, simply note them as changed
+ files and add your entry to the top of the ChangeLog. Resist the temptation
+ to "organize" your ChangeLog entries by placing them under the "correct" "*"
+ entries -- this isn't the purpose of the "*" entries.
+ This means that you start with header line that has the following format,
+ indented two spaces:
+ DD MMM YYYY; your_name <your_email> changed_file1, changed_file2: Your
+ explanation should follow. It should be indented and wrapped at a line width
+ of 80 characters. The changed_files can be omitted if they are obvious; for
+ example, if you are only modifying the .ebuild file and committing a new rev
+ of a package. Any details about what exactly changed in the code should be
+ added as a message when the changes are committed to cvs, not in this file.
+-- A word regarding credit:
+ Please add credit information ("ebuild submitted by ...", "patch submitted
+ by ...") to the ChangeLog. Do not add this information to the ebuilds
+ themselves.
+ And remember: Give credit where credit is due. We're all doing this for
+ free, so the best we can hope (and expect!) to receive is credit.

+# $Header: $
+# NOTE: The comments in this file are for instruction and documentation.
+# They're not meant to appear with your final, production ebuild. Please
+# remember to remove them before submitting or committing your ebuild. That
+# doesn't mean you can't add your own comments though.
+# The 'Header' on the third line should just be left alone. When your ebuild
+# will be committed to cvs, the details on that line will be automatically
+# generated to contain the correct data.
+# The EAPI variable tells the ebuild format in use.
+# Defaults to 0 if not specified. The current PMS draft contains details on
+# a proposed EAPI=0 definition but is not finalized yet.
+# Eclasses will test for this variable if they need to use EAPI > 0 features.
+# Ebuilds should not define EAPI > 0 unless they absolutely need to use
+# features added in that version.
+# inherit lists eclasses to inherit functions from. Almost all ebuilds should
+# inherit eutils, as a large amount of important functionality has been
+# moved there. For example, the $(get_libdir) mentioned below wont work
+# without the following line:
+inherit eutils
+# A well-used example of an eclass function that needs eutils is epatch. If
+# your source needs patches applied, it's suggested to put your patch in the
+# 'files' directory and use:
+# epatch ${FILESDIR}/patch-name-here
+# eclasses tend to list descriptions of how to use their functions properly.
+# take a look at /usr/portage/eclasses/ for more examples.
+# Short one-line description of this package.
+DESCRIPTION="This is a sample skeleton ebuild file"
+# Homepage, not used by Portage directly but handy for developer reference
+# Point to any required sources; these will be automatically downloaded by
+# Portage.
+# License of the package. This must match the name of file(s) in
+# /usr/portage/licenses/. For complex license combination see the developer
+# docs on gentoo.org for details.
+# The SLOT variable is used to tell Portage if it's OK to keep multiple
+# versions of the same package installed at the same time. For example,
+# if we have a libfoo-1.2.2 and libfoo-1.3.2 (which is not compatible
+# with 1.2.2), it would be optimal to instruct Portage to not remove
+# libfoo-1.2.2 if we decide to upgrade to libfoo-1.3.2. To do this,
+# we specify SLOT="1.2" in libfoo-1.2.2 and SLOT="1.3" in libfoo-1.3.2.
+# emerge clean understands SLOTs, and will keep the most recent version
+# of each SLOT and remove everything else.
+# Note that normal applications should use SLOT="0" if possible, since
+# there should only be exactly one version installed at a time.
+# DO NOT USE SLOT=""! This tells Portage to disable SLOTs for this package.
+# Using KEYWORDS, we can record masking information *inside* an ebuild
+# instead of relying on an external package.mask file. Right now, you should
+# set the KEYWORDS variable for every ebuild so that it contains the names of
+# all the architectures with which the ebuild works. All of the official
+# architectures can be found in the keywords.desc file which is in
+# /usr/portage/profiles/. Usually you should just set this to "~x86". The ~
+# in front of the architecture indicates that the package is new and should be
+# considered unstable until testing proves its stability. So, if you've
+# confirmed that your ebuild works on x86 and ppc, you'd specify:
+# KEYWORDS="~x86 ~ppc"
+# Once packages go stable, the ~ prefix is removed.
+# For binary packages, use -* and then list the archs the bin package
+# exists for. If the package was for an x86 binary package, then
+# KEYWORDS would be set like this: KEYWORDS="-* x86"
+# DO NOT USE KEYWORDS="*". This is deprecated and only for backward
+# compatibility reasons.
+# Comprehensive list of any and all USE flags leveraged in the ebuild,
+# with the exception of any ARCH specific flags, i.e. "ppc", "sparc",
+# "x86" and "alpha". This is a required variable. If the ebuild doesn't
+# use any USE flags, set to "".
+IUSE="gnome X"
+# A space delimited list of portage features to restrict. man 5 ebuild
+# for details. Usually not needed.
+# Build-time dependencies, such as
+# ssl? ( >=dev-libs/openssl-0.9.6b )
+# >=dev-lang/perl-5.6.1-r1
+# It is advisable to use the >= syntax show above, to reflect what you
+# had installed on your system when you tested the package. Then
+# other users hopefully won't be caught without the right version of
+# a dependency.
+# Run-time dependencies. Must be defined to whatever this depends on to run.
+# The below is valid if the same run-time depends are required to compile.
+# Source directory; the dir where the sources can be found (automatically
+# unpacked) inside ${WORKDIR}. The default value for S is ${WORKDIR}/${P}
+# If you don't need to change it, leave the S= line out of the ebuild
+# to keep it tidy.
+src_compile() {
+ # Most open-source packages use GNU autoconf for configuration.
+ # The quickest (and preferred) way of running configure is:
+ econf || die "econf failed"
+ #
+ # You could use something similar to the following lines to
+ # configure your package before compilation. The "|| die" portion
+ # at the end will stop the build process if the command fails.
+ # You should use this at the end of critical commands in the build
+ # process. (Hint: Most commands are critical, that is, the build
+ # process should abort if they aren't successful.)
+ #./configure \
+ # --host=${CHOST} \
+ # --prefix=/usr \
+ # --infodir=/usr/share/info \
+ # --mandir=/usr/share/man || die "./configure failed"
+ # Note the use of --infodir and --mandir, above. This is to make
+ # this package FHS 2.2-compliant. For more information, see
+ # http://www.pathname.com/fhs/
+ # emake (previously known as pmake) is a script that calls the
+ # standard GNU make with parallel building options for speedier
+ # builds (especially on SMP systems). Try emake first. It might
+ # not work for some packages, because some makefiles have bugs
+ # related to parallelism, in these cases, use emake -j1 to limit
+ # make to a single process. The -j1 is a visual clue to others
+ # that the makefiles have bugs that have been worked around.
+ emake || die "emake failed"
+src_install() {
+ # You must *personally verify* that this trick doesn't install
+ # anything outside of DESTDIR; do this by reading and
+ # understanding the install part of the Makefiles.
+ # This is the preferred way to install.
+ emake DESTDIR="${D}" install || die "emake install failed"
+ # When you hit a failure with emake, do not just use make. It is
+ # better to fix the Makefiles to allow proper parallelization.
+ # If you fail with that, use "emake -j1", it's still better than make.
+ # For Makefiles that don't make proper use of DESTDIR, setting
+ # prefix is often an alternative. However if you do this, then
+ # you also need to specify mandir and infodir, since they were
+ # passed to ./configure as absolute paths (overriding the prefix
+ # setting).
+ #emake \
+ # prefix="${D}"/usr \
+ # mandir="${D}"/usr/share/man \
+ # infodir="${D}"/usr/share/info \
+ # libdir="${D}"/usr/$(get_libdir) \
+ # install || die "emake install failed"
+ # Again, verify the Makefiles! We don't want anything falling
+ # outside of ${D}.
+ # The portage shortcut to the above command is simply:
+ #
+ #einstall || die "einstall failed"
