edit wishlist

I live in Berlin, Germany. I like to program, and I like working software. Currently interested in Erlang, Ruby, C, Common Lisp, Unix IO APIs, and B-Trees.

Personal MacPorts wishlist

  1. There should be an automatic build server (ideally with results in a web interface, filterable, searchable and with automatic notification)
  2. Dependencies don't use variants; fix
  3. There should be post-activate and pre-deactivate hooks to run port-specific scripts (e.g. to install launchd plists)
  4. automatically upgrade dependencies before building a port
  5. port list, info are slow; make fast (using b-trees)
  6. There should be user messages from within Portfiles which are a bit more persistent, like emails; maybe a highlevel user-message log file is enough
  7. There should be a tool which finds stale references from executables and libraries to dynamically linked libraries (think gentoo revdep-rebuild)
  8. make guide use a reasonable (wiki-like) markup, not docbook-xml.
  9. Feature: Dependencies can use (minimum) versions

My ports are:

libsvm                          
mochiweb

rb-rmagick                      
ruby19                          
tsung
