OVERVIEW

The SVN module 'gentoolkit' contains all the scripts and stuff for both the
gentoolkit and the gentoolkit-dev package. The gentoolkit-dev package is
an optional add-on, that is only intented for the Gentoo developers.

STYLE POLICY

If you're touching any of the python scripts please don't change the indentation
style (if it's using tabs, you should use tabs too). Especially don't mix
spaces and tabs as that makes the code completely unreadable.
Tabs should be default for new scripts.

Each script must provide a manpage.

MAKING A RELEASE

Releases should only be made by members of the tools-portage team. See
http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/metastructure/herds/herds.xml?select=tools-portage
for who to contact on IRC, or shuffle over a bug report to us, or send
us a mail at tools-portage@gentoo.org if you need an immediate release.

The release manager (big words;) will then do

1) make VERSION=major.minor.patch RELEASE_TAG=<optional> dist
2) copy release/gentoolkit-dev-${VERSION}-${RELEASE_TAG}.tar.gz to
   dev.gentoo.org:/space/distfiles-local/
3) make a new ebuild, app-portage/gentoolkit-dev/gentoolkit-dev-${VERSION}.ebuild
   with a SRC_URI that points to
   mirror://gentoo/gentoolkit-dev-${VERSION}-${RELEASE_TAG}.tar.gz
   (just use one of the previous ebuilds)

Important!
1) _ALWAYS_ make sure you don't "overwrite" a previous release. Your
   new VERSION must be newer than any previous released version. If you
   mess up a release, don't overwrite with the same release number, iterate
   the patch version and try again (and again, and again until you get
   it right;)


Currently, the following people have "release access":

 - zmedico@gentoo.org
 - fuzzyray@gentoo.org
 - idl0r@gentoo.org

If you want a new release, ping either one of us. If you want to get
"release access", talk to fuzzyray@gentoo.org
