  • Found documentation: I_KNOW_WHAT_I_AM_DOING variable. This can can be set to a value of 1 (or any defined value) to skip pre-merge safety checks. This allows machines with below minimum mounts of disk space or memory (RAM) try to emerge an ebuild.
user $grep -r I_KNOW_WHAT_I_AM_DOING /usr/portage/eclass

Foundation articles

Wikified most of the articles in the Foundation namespace. Meetings may still need some tender love and care but I'll probably never get to them; they're not important.

March

  • Added ebuild repository URI the {{Developer}} template (for developer profiles).

February

Joined the Gentoo Foundation

Joined the Gentoo foundation as a "Foundation wiki editor".

Having a developer template for referencing Ebuild repositories would be good a nice way to make our developers personal repositories more accessible.

Blog InfoBox template

Created the {{InfoBox blog}} template for articles that reference a project's blog:

{{InfoBox stack |{{InfoBox blog|https://planet.gentoo.org}} }}

RootInvocation template

Created the {{RootInvocation}} template to be exclusively used to display root command invocation options.

This template can provide people with a web-based reference that can be expanded or contracted based on a single click by the user. Helpful for online command referencing and convenient so that editors do not have to specify a custom prompt and color when a root prompt is necessary to invoke the command.

Deprecate gdoc Infobox, replace with project Infobox

{{InfoBox project}} is really the term that should be used as the InfoBox link to Gentoo projects. Not {{InfoBox gdoc}}. :P
