valerios,

You may get a better result by posting a feature request bug at bugs.gentoo.org.

The bug needs to explain what whisker menu is, where you will use it and give a link.
Devs don't have a lot of free time, make their job easy for them.

It's not a bug. I ask if sometime will be released an ebuild to install whisker menu.

if gentoo is missing an important app, it's regarded as a bug

so you can make the feature request as suggested

valerios,

A bug is a formal way to bring something the the developers attention, thats all.
It need not be a fault.

usually devs do not look through this forum to get an idea of what people feel is missing, because it would be a waste of time since a forum does not provide the structure our bugtracker does

of course the forum still fits for longer discussions on how to get stuff working that is not yet in the tree

always file bugs
