I'm a bit confused about new /etc/ego.conf

Question

Hi Masters ......

 

I've read that: http://www.funtoo.org/News:Latest_Innovations

 

But ... why

[kits]

python-kit = 3.6-prime
xorg-kit = 1.19-prime

and not for example

python-kit = master
xorg-kit = master

Thanx for any suggestion .... _'_

 

I certainly did not understand the new conception properly; Also: how to query the system to get an account of what is in prime or in (ex-master)?
Excuse my trivial question.

Ok .... i've made an experiment:

My default is for example about xorg-kit:

ci74771ht kits # eix xorg-server        
[I] x11-base/xorg-server [1] 
    Available versions:  1.17.4(0/1.17.4) 1.17.4-r1(0/1.17.4) {dmx doc glamor ipv6 kdrive libressl min
imal nptl selinux static-libs +suid systemd tslib +udev unwind wayland xephyr xnest xorg xvfb}          
    Installed versions:  1.17.4-r1(0/1.17.4)(22:43:03 06/09/2017)(ipv6 nptl suid udev xorg -dmx -doc -
glamor -kdrive -libressl -minimal -selinux -static-libs -systemd -tslib -unwind -wayland -xephyr -xnest
-xvfb)

    Description:         X.Org X servers 

[1] "xorg-kit" /var/git/meta-repo/kits/xorg-kit

but if i modify the /etc/ego.conf adding

xorg-kit = master

then

# ego sync && eix-update

i'llhave:

ci74771ht kits # eix xorg-server 
[U] x11-base/xorg-server [1] 
    Available versions:  1.12.4-r7(0/1.12.4) 1.15.2-r4(0/1.15.2) 1.18.4(0/1.18.4) 1.19.2(0/1.19.2) 1.1

My understanding is that master branch is not supported unless it's the default branch of a kit.

If true that could explain why master was not used in the example for python-kit or xorg-kit.

I leave all my kit branch's to default to have minimum problems.

 

How I list all available branch's for a kit:

Change into the directory of the kit for the branch's to be listed.

Run this command and read the output:

git branch -a
For example view all available branch's for python-kit:

cd /var/git/meta-repo/kits/python-kit
/var/git/meta-repo/kits/python-kit $ git branch -a
* 3.4-prime
  master
  remotes/origin/3.4-prime
  remotes/origin/3.6-prime
  remotes/origin/HEAD -> origin/3.4-prime
  remotes/origin/master

Ok Dear Cardinal.

I understand your thoughts.

However ... it is a period with many variations;

not that I'm sorry, I just want to understand very well to understand the "novelties" introduced for the Portage of Funtoo.
