GNUstep Objective-C runtime

Official package sites : ·

The GNUstep Objective-C runtime is designed as a drop-in replacement for the GCC runtime. It supports both a legacy and a modern ABI, allowing code compiled with old versions of GCC to be supported without requiring recompilation. The modern ABI adds the following features: - Non-fragile instance variables. - Protocol uniquing. - Object planes support. - Declared property introspection. Both ABIs support the following feature above and beyond the GCC runtime: - The modern Objective-C runtime APIs, introduced with OS X 10.5. - Blocks (closures). - Low memory profile for platforms where memory usage is more important than speed. - Synthesised property accessors. - Efficient support for @synchronized() - Type-dependent dispatch, eliminating stack corruption from mismatched selectors.

*/*: [QA] Fix trivial cases of MissingTestRestrict
The result was achieved via the following pipeline: pkgcheck scan -c RestrictTestCheck -R FormatReporter \ --format '{category}/{package}/{package}-{version}.ebuild' | xargs -n32 grep -L RESTRICT | xargs -n32 sed -i -e '/^IUSE=.*test/aRESTRICT="!test? ( test )"' The resulting metadata was compared before and after the change. Few Go ebuilds had to be fixed manually due to implicit RESTRICT=strip added by the eclass. Two ebuilds have to be fixed because of multiline IUSE. Suggested-by: Robin H. Johnson <> Closes: Signed-off-by: Michał Górny <>

proj/gentoo: Initial commit
This commit represents a new era for Gentoo: Storing the gentoo-x86 tree in Git, as converted from CVS. This commit is the start of the NEW history. Any historical data is intended to be grafted onto this point. Creation process: 1. Take final CVS checkout snapshot 2. Remove ALL ChangeLog* files 3. Transform all Manifests to thin 4. Remove empty Manifests 5. Convert all stale $Header$/$Id$ CVS keywords to non-expanded Git $Id$ 5.1. Do not touch files with -kb/-ko keyword flags. Signed-off-by: Robin H. Johnson <> X-Thanks: Alec Warner <> - did the GSoC 2006 migration tests X-Thanks: Robin H.
