Hello,

i am trying to maintain a port of emacs that accesses the emacs cvs
repository to
get the sources. however regarding versioning i was trying to be keen and
inserted

version=cvs-$(date %G)
release=$(date +%j)

on the long run - giving me a new version each year and a new release
everyday
i ask for it. however prt-get was misbehaving and eating more and more
memory.
strace showed that is was sitting in some sort of loop...

is this at all a good idea?! i guess not from a methodical point of view.
But
what about prt-get?

sincerely
matthias
