Subject: [gentoo-devhelp] dodoc vs directories

It seems that dodoc recently has lost recusivity in portage master.

Several ebuilds (including in the main tree) now fail because of that.

Bug https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=356389 implies that the goal
is only to qawarn, not error, when passed a directory.  And dodoc itself
seems to work that way.

But doins does not (cf:

  :; grep -C3 '$x is a directory' /usr/lib/portage/bin/ebuild-helpers/doins

for the details).

Is this a bug in portage or should I submit bugs, blocking 356389, for
each failure?
