Hello

I would really love to se Hiawatha web server in Gentoo portage.. or even in overlay.. or whichever method would get it on my Gentoo : )

Now there 'v been something here https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=65259 but its old.. really old

So I have 0 knowledge of making ebuilds and would really love to see this webserver on my Gentoo.. where should I look/ask for it?


Best.
