Portage auto-patch utility for Gentoo Linux


The Hacking Networked Solutions patch-set for Gentoo Linux requires a means of applying a series of patch files to a portage repository to be of any value. In addition a mechanism for copying various ancillary files to the repository, such as patches to be applied during the build-phase of an ebuild rather than those to be applied to an ebuild, is also required. The Portage auto-patch utility for Gentoo Linux, or auto-patch-portage, provides such functionality.
