Finally my recruitment process has been finished and I am now an official Gentoo developer. Today I’ve started by setting up common stuff such as email, herd, bugzilla searches, etc. Next on the list is updating xemacs and related packages. I’ve begun to remove some old xemacs packages from the tree to get a better understanding of how things work. Especially repoman is a tool that can’t really be practised with, as is true for some of the special portage features. I’ve only seem to have messed up once, checking in the wrong metadata file, but that was easily fixed.
Next step is a mega-update for xemacs, consisting of most of the fixes that have been sitting in my overlay for quite a while. I’m currently sorting all of it out, so that all the associated bugs can also be closed.
