A custom repository for CHIRP, a tool for configuring HAM radios.
The official CHIRP project does not support Python 3 and depends on pygtk which hasn’t seen a stable release since April 2011.
chirp-gentoo is a fork of the py3 branch of the official CHIRP project with some syntax fixes leftover from Python2.
When I first started using Gentoo again CHIRP was still a part of the main Gentoo Portage Repository.
Eventually Gentoo began migrating away from Python2 and due to a lack of movement in the official project it was removed from the official Gentoo repository.
I still needed to configure my radios and maintain an up to date Gentoo desktop so I cloned the py3 branch from the official CHIRP project and fixed a few syntax errors leftover from Python2 and everything worked great.
I was able to download an image from my BF-F8HP, fully reconfigure it and upload the new image back to my radio.
