Thanks for the ebuild package! Is it possible to be included in the official gentoo repository?
I looked at http://bugs.gentoo.org/158104 but it seems that there's another surl package - it's the one from http://sourceforge.net/projects/surl and I'm not sure if it's in the official repository, only the overlays as far as I can see.

OK, yes that surl was changed to surl, I guess i could rename it to pysurl. The other surl is in the sunrise overlay so a new name would have to be used. I updated the ebuild after I talked to some other developers, I am just a Staff member at the moment. I have my own overlay that I use to test ebuilds I write as I am learning. Here is the updated ebuild, and by the way, nice program :)

I am not 100% sure, but I think N. Dan Smith (at the gentoo bug) is actually Nathan Smith (developer of surl). I had asked the developer of surl at sourceforge about this, he approved the surl name:

pysurl is fine by me!

> nice program :)
Thank you! I'll try my best to make it grow in my free time. :)

Is there a repository link of your unofficial overlay? I'd like to announce it.
