app-misc/mswinurl_launcher: rescue from sunrise
This package has been a long time coming. Introduced to the Sunrise overlay in 2008, it was kept out of the tree primarily due to a license issue (since the upstream script doesn't have one). To be honest I'm not sure if *.url files are still created in recent versions of Windows anymore, but I personally still have filesystems with WindowsXP installed on them that I only access through linux, and having this file association open the url in my system's default browser is quite handy. The main difference between this package and that from Sunrise is that the .desktop file is created inline rather than being a separate file, and that there is an appropriate LICENSE and RESTRICT=mirror to allow the package to legally exist in the gentoo repo. This ebuild has also been converted to EAPI6. The ChangeLog from sunrise is as follows: 10 Sep 2009; Thomas Sachau (Tommy[D]) <email@example.com> mswinurl_launcher-1.0.ebuild: Drop src_unpack and S assignment, use DISTDIR in src_install directly 08 Sep 2009; Ian Stakenvicius (_AxS_) <firstname.lastname@example.org> +mswinurl_launcher-1.0.ebuild, +files/mswinurl_launcher.desktop, +metadata.xml: New package for bug #283698 - thanks to ssuominen for the ebuild help Package-Manager: portage-2.3.0
