Well, I'm actually work with a lot of proprietary and binary packages, such as Tivoli Storage Manager, FastT Storage Manager, Adaptec ServerRaid, DB/2 and the list goes on.
Everyone knows that the great number of this packages come in a rpm version for RedHat.. and installing this type of packages in gentoo its a really pain in the ass.
Im about to create a repository with some ebuilds maded by me with this support. As I say... install a pure rpm of comercial software from rh or suse in gentoo sometimes get serious errors, and I don't want to make a lot of fixes all the time I need to install an application in servers using gentoo (actually I have diferent flavours to administrate).
It's an idea, I really want to go ahead with this, and of course, I'm open for suggestions, colaborations and help. I don't have a the same knowledge with other applications install than IBM stuff, but will be great to have an option to install proprietary stuff like TSM and RaidManager in gentoo.
