I made a Gentoo package for The Dark Mod

As the title says, I made an ebuild for The Dark Mod a while ago, figured I might as well post about it here in case anyone here is using Gentoo (or wants to adapt it for other distributions). The game gets installed system-wide and files are symlinked to the user's home directory whenever the game is started after an update (or for the first time), so the game files are only in one location but also users' save states don't conflict.

The ebuild itself is here: https://git.sr.ht/~dblsaiko/ebuilds/tree/master/games-rpg/thedarkmod, and you can install the game by enabling my Portage overlay and then emerging the games-rpg/thedarkmod package:

# eselect repository enable 2xsaiko # (alternatively, add the repo using layman)
# emerge games-rpg/thedarkmod

Thanks for building this package.
It would be nice if you can publisch this package to one of the main gentoo repo's if any.
Like people did with TDM packages for opensuse and archlinux.

To update your packages, where needed, take a look at:

That would be nice, but unfortunately I'm not a Gentoo maintainer so I can't directly add it myself, now it's possible to submit ebuilds to the main repo but I'm not familiar with how exactly that would work, it's possible, but I haven't done it before, so I think it would be way more involved since I'd have to submit a new ebuild every time I want to update it instead of just being able to push to my own repo. Also since I submitted my repo to the gentoo repositories list you can add it directly via eselect repository and the package shows up on sites like GPO (see: http://gpo.zugaina.org/games-rpg/thedarkmod) so anyone who searches that will be able to find it and install it without too much trouble, since a lot of people already use overlays.

I'll look into it though.
