To work actively on the Ebuilds there is the possibility to apply for an account at gentoo.de. With this account it is possible to get write permission for the CVS server.

These steps are necessary:

  • Apply for an account at Stefan Knoblich <stkn@-NoSPaM-gentoo-ev.org> and give the reason why you should get write permissions on the gentoo.de CVS server.
  • install CVS (emerge cvs)
  • man cvs !!!
  • Then checkout the CVS Tree, best done as "normal" user and not as root.
mkdir gentoo-de
cd gentoo-de
cvs -d user@cvs.gentoo.de:/var/cvsroot co gentoo-x86

Set the Variable PORTDIR_OPVERLAY in /etc/make.conf to /home/$USER/gentoo-de/gentoo-x86:

PORTDIR_OVERLAY="/home/$USER/gentoo-de/gentoo-x86"

Now you can start contributing to gentoo-de vdr-ebuilds.
