Re: [tlug] (gentoo) how to ask for an ebuild or do it myself?

Al, Edward, Josh, thank you all for your advice.

I followed your instructions and fiddled a bit with the ebuild, and
now my emacs is up and running including remember-el.

There is still some work to do because:

1) the current ebuild grabs from the arch repository, so it might be
   better to stick to numbered versions like 1.8 from tarballs

2) the arch repository actually changed this week so I will need to
   update it

3) versioning ebuilds by date (remember-20050102.ebuild is the original)
   might not be the best..

I also have a few questions:

Is there any reason for making that remember-gentoo and not remember? In
doubt, I stuck with the name remember for now.

Yes, I will definitely do this. Not right know because I have to go
home, but it is on my list for early next week.
