Thank you for your hard work.

Would it be possibly to find time to create an updated Gentoo ebuild for the new 0.24.2 release?

Thanks in advance.

I just found some 0.24.2 ebuilds on Gentoo bugzilla:

I don't know if you guys prefer to make your own or you would rather just review these and then possibly put them in your own git.

Either way, thanks in advance.

I really look forward to 0.24.2, since it'll hopefully resolve a sound issue, I'm having.

Invalid why? Did I make a mistake in my bugreport? Or do you not consider it your responsibility to create ebuilds for Gentoo? Just let me know and I'll stop bothering you and praising your work.

Ticket locked: set

While some point releases in the past have come with schema or protocol updates, this one did not. There is no incompatibility between 0.24.1 and 0.24.2. The only difference between fixes/0.24 HEAD, and the version that comes with the current 1 Jan ebuild, are about 15 minor fixes. While Rob Smith and I have admittedly been lax on updating the ebuilds recently, it has generally not been considered a big issue as Gentoo users are expected to be a bit self sufficient. That's the whole purpose of the distro. More importantly, new ebuilds are only a quick command away.

scripts/ --version=0.24.2

Asking to update this is a feature request, and as a general principle, we do not allow feature requests on trac. You gave links to someone else's version to be used as an update, but there were no diffs to easily apply, and no significant changes besides needlessly including the eclass code in each and every ebuild. Until the linuxtv headers were moved a couple days ago, there were no actual bugs with the ebuilds to warrant a ticket. I had left the ticket open as a reminder of updates I wanted to make to the above script, but Beirdo decided to close it as part of the process of cleaning up trac for the upcoming 0.25 release.
