Subject: Amount of useflags enabled by default
Date: Fri, 23 Oct 2009 18:56:19 +0200
Hi,

i would like to start a discussion about reducing the amount of default-enabled USE flags in
profiles, especially in inherited basic profiles.

Is there any policy, when they are added, how the reason for addition is documented and when they
are removed from profiles?

In addition, i see a trend to enabled more more more USE flags (either over profiles or via IUSE
+flag). Whats the reason for forcing a big load of default enabled USE flags on every user including
more dependencies, more compile time, more wasted disk space and more possible vulnerabilities
except some users, who complain about a missing feature and are not able to think and enable a USE
flag for that feature?
