added puf 1.0.0

I committed a new ebuild to the overlay for puf (parallel url fetcher), because the version in portage is outdated, and there are a lot of new features added in 1.0.0

kde-lite added

I just committed a new ebuild to the overlay for kde-lite, which is a meta-ebuild, which pulls in some basic split-ebuild packages for a fully functional KDE-desktop which does not have all the extra packages that you don't use anyway.

Feedback is more than welcome, as I could add or remove packages.

GFN BugDay

We decided it would be a good idea to dedicate a day each month to hunting and fixing bugs and honouring feature requests, in order to keep the backlog down. We will also decide on that day which feature requests are unlikely to be honoured, and will therefore be closed as WONTFIX.

We have proposed to hold a BugDay every first Sunday of the month, so the first one will be on February 4th. Users of our overlay are urged to submit or confirm bugs and requests, and help out with patches or ebuilds if they can. We will open a dedicated IRC channel on that day to facilitate better communication.

It's a it different than gimp, but I wouldn't call it photoshop.

Working MPlayer subversion ebuild

The overlay now contains media-video/mplayer-9999-r13, which is a finally working ebuild for the live subversion code from the MPlayer devs! I had to disable a couple of options which don't compile cleanly and fixed a few other problems.

Update to media-video/mplayer-9999

An updated ebuild voor MPlayer subversion is now available in the overlay. It does not compile cleanly, so it is -* keyworded now.
