Portage-2.0.47-r4 is out for testing. It's masked in package.mask as
always. This one should be ready for public release. Test please and
give me feedback.
This one is mostly cleanups of 2.0.47-r3 and fixes to the changes from
group wheel to group portage. Note that all actions are now preceded by
'--' and are effectively flags.
25 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <firstname.lastname@example.org> *: Update docs and help
to match the deprecation of actions without '--' preceding them.
25 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <email@example.com> portage.py: Message
updates. Fix secpass for portage user. Set PORTAGE_GID for ebuild.sh to
use regardless of GID in use (wheel/portage). Only try and delete things
in PORTAGE_TMPDIR if we have perms to do it... see secpass note. Moved the
cachedir creation after settings in created so that we can use spawn instead
of system for the calls to 'chown/chmod -R'. Fix the note on make.defaults.
Fix for the 404 catcher in the fetch code.
25 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <firstname.lastname@example.org> emerge: Move all actions
into '--action' form -- Notify of deprecated usages. Moved the functions
from the top of emerge down below the command line parser for readability.
Kill FEATURES=noauto if we're running emerge -- it can break things. Make
-U imply -u so people aren't confused. --debug now enables all debug
variables in portage. Fix wheel/portage group requirements messages. Get
the current portage version when doing rsync via the portage tree's files
and not the loaded cache so that it is aware of changes immediately instead
of the next run.
25 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <email@example.com> ebuild.sh: Try to change
to good a good path at the start of the ebuild to prevent operations from
happening in places like home. After the ebuild's install phase, check to
see if any unsafe perm combo's exist and die if they do. Fix permissions
on the cachedir as we're changing them to root:portage. &> on environment
file prevented it from actually creating the file -- changed to 2>. Change
'true' to 'exit 0' to be a bit more explicit about what we're doing.
24 Feb 2003; Alain Penders <firstname.lastname@example.org> repoman: Added
nested/sub-shell die testing.
23 Feb 2003; Alain Penders <email@example.com>: Added bin/portageq tool to
provide access to portage internal information without using APIs that
are changing. All tools that currently access portage information by
importing portage.py and poking around in it should switch to using this
tool instead. Changed some tools in bin/ to use it, so those won't break
