Bugday focus: EAPI 7

Topic 1: EAPI 7

Search packages, which are not yet based on EAPI 7 and update them.


Topic 2: Check the installation manual

Search and fix bugs in the installation manual.

I still do not know how to start. Could you provide an example workflow?

Larry wants to fix one of his favourite packages.

  • Larry picks one package in bug #705764
  • Larry adds the bug number to the "looking at" column in his row in the Activity Tracker (and adds a row for himself if one does not already exist) so others can see this bug is being worked on
  • net-misc/networkmanager: Fails to compile with -fno-common bug #706000
  • check upstream - is there a fix?
  • if there is, decide if a patch or a version bump makes more sense.
  • download or write a patch, copy it to /etc/portage/patches and test it
  • report upstream, and link the upstream bug/ticket in Gentoo's Bugzilla
  • now that the task is completed, Larry should update the Activity Tracker by moving the bug number from the "looking at" column to the "completed" column
