How about a forum to just discuss eBuilds, tricks with them, making them, and people can request them if they feel they aren't up to doing it themselves...

I'm all for it. I thinks this will fit quite well into the Development section of the forums.

...then why add another forum to our already-way-too-large selection?

In the section development are Gentoo Suggestions, Bugs, Programming, Documentation and GCC3. In which one of these should the ebuild discussions go?

I agree with you that there are too many forums ATM, but I guess one for ebuilds would be quite good, because I don't really see where else we could post them without annoying people not interested in making ebuilds.

Well if u go like that wed easily have 10k+ forums. Ud have to break down desktop enviorments into every single prog that exists, so KMail users wont have to look at probs with Syphledd. I don't thnk its to big a deal to group some things together, and how bad could it be to read a post about ebuilds every now and then. Requests would easily fall under gentoo suggestoins, and i think making them could fall under programming. So why is another forum needed?

Ok, I don't really need the forum, I just thought it was a good idea. If we don't get it, no big deal.

So where should ebuild questions be posted? All things Gentoo seems right...

Either that or you could you do sub-forums? (I know vB can do it not sure about phpBB). You could make an eBuild subforum of the dev forum...

Depends on what the discussion is about. If it is about an existing ebuild, then likely not under the development section until it is determined to be buggy. New ebuilds are often 'requested' under Suggestions.

The ebuild forum sounds valuable to me.

I've been searching around for the proper place to ask if anyone can point to a ebuild where the package is using Vmake? SAP DB is committed to sticking with it and I want an ebuild for it. Considering the pain in just a regular compile, I could use a template to look through. :D

I'd love to see an ebuild forum

I doubt it would be the first step down the slippery slope to 10K forums...and as a matter of fact since ebuilds are the the basic building blocks for Gentoo I'd think it could be a very valuable place to learn, teach, and share.

Which should lead to more and better ebuilds and to a better distro
