Quote10:28 AM <Kunda> how does someone start to write a HEAD port in macports ?10:30 AM <anddam> Kunda: what's a HEAD port?10:30 AM <Kunda> the bleeding edge version of trunk10:30 AM <Kunda> so there is a Scribus 1.4.5 port10:30 AM <Kunda> but there is no Scribus 1.5.1svn bleeding edge port10:31 AM <Kunda> like a rolling release version10:31 AM <Kunda> or an unstable version10:31 AM <Kunda> not sure what you guys call it10:31 AM <geekosaur> you don't, basically. it's not a reproduceable build10:31 AM <su_v> it is, if based on a certain commit10:31 AM <conundrum> Kunda: You could do it for yourself pretty easily.10:31 AM <geekosaur> we have -devel ports but they're based on snapshots (which may be specific commit hashes)10:32 AM <Kunda> that commit can't be a moving target ?10:32 AM <su_v> (there are some devel ports which don't use a devel snapshot tarball)10:32 AM <anddam> Kunda: create a local repository and do whatever you want10:33 AM <anddam> the portfile can accomodates your need pretty easily, or sort of, it's still Tcl...10:33 AM <Kunda> here is a HEAD only homebrew formula to build Scribus 1.5.1svn https://github.com/scribusproject/homebrew-scribus/blob/master/scribus.rb10:33 AM <Kunda> so how do i translate this in to macport-speak ?10:35 AM <Kunda> hey su_v ...10:39 AM <Kunda> su_v, what's an example of these devel ports you describe ?10:40 AM <su_v> e.g. gegl-devel, babl-devel and the various devel ports for GIMP 2.910:40 AM <conundrum> Kunda: Take a look at this file: /opt/local/var/macports/sources/rsync.macports.org/release/tarballs/ports/print/scribus10:40 AM <su_v> there's one for inkscape trunk too10:40 AM <conundrum> And at this guide: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:h4m76OJcoVAJ:https://guide.macports.org/chunked/development.local-repositories.html+&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us10:40 AM <su_v> (inkscape-devel)10:41 AM <conundrum> (Used google cache since the MP site is not feeling too well right now)10:41 AM <conundrum> You're asking strangers to do work for you with no incentive. If you do some legwork of your own you'll get farther.10:42 AM <conundrum> If you get a working portfile you could submit it back as scribus-devel (what su_v is talking about) and share the wealth.10:42 AM <conundrum> Or you could do it locally and only benefit yourself.10:42 AM <Kunda> conundrum, i was planning to help someone else get started.. but I may need to do legwork10:42 AM <Kunda> thanks su_v10:43 AM <conundrum> Kunda: I just did both for you. 10:45 AM <Kunda> conundrum, cheers 10:45 AM <conundrum> Good luck! Port files are pretty easy, especially if you're just looking to modify an existing one.
