Sabayon Community Repositories
The Sabayon Community Repositories (SCR) is a
community-driven collection of repositories for Sabayon users.
It contains packages built and kept up-to-date by the
SCR Build System that allow you to install a package directly with equo.
The SCR was created to keep in a clean and well state the
Entropy main repositories, with the goal to reduce it's
size and impact.
The SCR is the infrastructure to organize and share new packages
from the community and to also build popular packages into the
SCR contains mostly packages that can be found in Gentoo Overlays
(layman) and that cannot be maintained by the Sabayon Dev team.
In the SCR, users are able also to contribute their
own package builds (ebuilds and related files).
The SCR community has the ability to vote for or against
packages/repositories in the SCR Build System.
All the repositories provides packages in the binary form.
DISCLAIMER: SCR packages are user produced content.
Any use of the provided files is at your own risk.
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
Start to search on the top bar,
if the package is present a drop down menu will appear.
Click on the package you are interested in
and follow the steps to install in your box!
SCR Developers(SCRD) are members of the community charged
with keeping the SCR in working order.
They maintain popular packages
(communicating with and sending patches upstream as needed),
and vote in administrative matters.
A SCRD is elected from active community members by current SCRDs
in a democratic process.
SCRDs are the only members who have a final say in the direction
of the SCR.
To fill a Package request
file a bug
in the Sabayon Bugzilla.
There are three types of requests that can be filed that will be considered by a SCRD:
Request a package to be disowned,
e.g. when the maintainer is inactive and
the package has been flagged out-of-date for a long time.
Request a package to be removed from the
Community repository in SCR.
Please do not use this if a package is broken and
can be fixed easily.
Instead, contact the package maintainer and
file orphan request if necessary.
Add a package:
Request a package to be inside Community SCR.
SCRD will decide what to do then, if you intend to mantain it,
specify it in the issue.
open a Pull request
at the Sabayon/community-repositories Github Repository
with the suggested changes.
If you find a bug in the SCR web interface,
please fill out a bug report on our bug tracker.
Use the tracker to report bugs in the SCR web interface only.
