GeoXPlanet being considered for Portage?

Posted 01-04-2009 at 07:52 AM by rocket357

I did some googling the other day to see who (if any) was using GeoXPlanet, and I ran across this:

fraggod contributed some patches to GeoXPlanet some time ago (around release 0.4.4), which I reviewed and added to the project. His patches centered around reverse dns primarily, but he had a few tweaks in there as well (radius xplanet option exposed via the configGUI, as well as a few other options I'd planned to add around 0.5.0) Now it seems fraggod has made another contribution: he's submitted an ebuild for GeoXPlanet to Gentoo to add GeoXPlanet as a new package for portage.

As a long-time Gentoo user, I considered taking the position of package maintainer (if it remains open and fraggod doesn't strike first =) for GeoXPlanet's ebuild. I sincerely wonder if I'd have the time, however.

But I must admit, being the project lead + package maintainer for GeoXPlanet for my favorite flavor of Linux does make a striking amount of sense...
