depot_tools
Closed, WontfixPublic

Description

Name: depot_tools
Homepage: https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/tools/depot_tools
Reason: it is essential to build many things Google, such as chromium (browser), dartlang, etc. It might be helpful for a user who is building Chromium/Google stuffs, but it's mostly for our (the developers') convenience so that we don't need to git clone it every time we build a package developed by Google.
License: distributable, but I don't think it's open source: https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/tools/depot_tools/+/refs/heads/main/LICENSE
Source: same as homepage

Also, if accepted, please advise on what the name of the package should be (depot_tools or depot-tools or something else).

The license is BSD-3-Clause so it is open source :D

Aha thanks! This is why I can never get a full score on my math tests.

This has sat in accepted for inclusion for over 30 days. Clearly, there is a lack of demand for the inclusion of this software, nobody has stepped up to provide a completed patch, maintain it, and properly integrate it. Closing as a result. Feel free to reopen but only when someone offers a patch via our proper patch submission methods and volunteers to be maintainer.
