Description:
Metro is the Funtoo Linux automated build system, and is used to build Funtoo Linux stage tarballs.
Source Code:

Installation

The recommended and supported method is to use the Git repository of Metro.

Ensure that dev-vcs/git, dev-python/requests, dev-python/sqlalchemy and dev-python/lxml are installed on your system.

root # emerge dev-vcs/git dev-python/requests dev-python/sqlalchemy dev-python/lxml

Next, clone the master git repository as follows:

root # cd /root
root # git clone git://github.com/funtoo/metro.git
root # cp /root/metro/metro.conf ~/.metro

You will now have a directory called /root/metro that contains all the Metro source code.

Setting up ego

Now, we will set the ego, administration tool of Funtoo Linux. The way it is used with metro is independent from app-admin/ego installed on your box. Setup is easy as follows:

root # cd /root
root # git clone https://github.com/funtoo/ego.git

This way you will have /root/ego directory with ego binary that is then used by metro.

Build Repository Setup

Metro uses a repository to store built stages and snapshots, which typically resides at Template:P. There are two methods to set up your build repository -- it can be done manually or with our auto-setup script. The auto-setup script is of course faster and easier, while the manual method may give you a deeper understanding of how the build repository internals work.
