PR specific testing

app-crypt/libbsd and app-crypt/libmd autogen FL-10569

  • Ran doit to generate the ebuild.
  • Emerged the ebuild both on 1.4-release and Next
  • Emerged all the dependencies both on 1.4-release and Next

Every dependency that could be emerged without unrelated fails, built cleanly with the new versions of these libraries. 6 dependencies on each release failed to build for unrelated reasons, so they could not be tested for compatibility with the updated libraries. The list of dependencies tested can be seen in the PR description.

Replacing 'egrep' with 'grep -E' in eclasses FL-10583

No systematic, specific test was run for this change, as it's not expected to have a high impact on anything, but the edited eclasses were left in the developer's machine and have been used while emerging other packages ever since, without presenting any issues.

Generating Firefox-106.0 ebuild with distribution.ini inline autogen template

  • Ran doit to generate the ebuild.
  • Copied the ebuild to local overlay.
  • Emerged it.
  • Ran the application: success.

Adding autogens and ebuilds for rime, it dependencies and fixes to zinnia-tomoe FL-10592

Pre-harvester merge testing description:

Rime and related:

  1. Installed and merged all packages added/modified here
  2. Extensively used all packages in the pr for more than a month
  3. Installed, tested and used multiple rime plugins by installing them trough plum


  1. Fixed the issue of the machine learning models by passing a link trough artifacts for the download
  2. Merged zinnia, zinnia-tomoe and ibus-handwrite(the only application that currently uses these libraries)
  3. Used ibus-handwrite for over 2 months without issues


  1. Compiled and merged pyzy with the +opencc USE flag for the PR that fixes its compilation here.
  2. Also compiled, merged and tested ibus-pinyin because it depends on pyzy
  3. Compiled and merged librime, which depends on OpenCC to compile

All USE flags except for debug and test flags were tested by merging the resulting ebuild, reemerging and usage testing the given packages' frontends
