Google Summer of Code/2013/Ideas/Portage public API
This is a continuation of a project from a previous year. The aim is to complete the creation of a stable api for consumer app use. The api will be fully capable of performing merges, unmerges, getting dependency graphs, etc.. An additional task is to provide a c interface lib that connects to the python api functions and classes. This allows further use of the api for c, c++ based applications and portage frontends.
This project in its current form is not suitable for a complete SoC project. If you wish to work on this, you should expand the scope of the work significantly. One possibility is to include the Tags support for Portage project.
