[edit] Issues with emerge

For system-dependent parts emerge should rely on the kdewin-installer package

  • make the kdewin-installer work on the commandline and integrate into emerge
  • integrate kdewin-menubuilder
  • test for kdewin-* applications before using them

[edit] Some more functions that are needed

  • find a better solution what to build (accept multiple targets at the commandline like the original emerge does)
  • implement an update command which either updates the installed packages or which updates one package only
  • make two packages possible: 'emerge-bin' and 'emerge-portage'.
  • use another way to update the portage directory in future (rsync or similar)

[edit] Junior Jobs

[edit] Add missing documentation

There seem to be tons of options that were added but not yet documented - if someone has nothing to do or if you want to understand emerge better, you should start and document those options. The options are defined in emerge/bin/emerge.py so you should be able to find them easily.

[edit] Window manager

The idea is to replace the desktop and toolbtaskbar with something based on code from http://www.bb4win.org.
