No, considerably after then. When we wrote PMS (and copied dohtml for Paludis), it would silently return non-zero. r9479 (Tue Mar 18 22:12:52 2008 UTC) changed this to noisily return non-zero. r9484 (Wed Mar 19 09:45:51 2008 UTC) changed this to noisily return non-zero, but only if nothing at all was installed, and to return zero if a directory was skipped but other things were installed. r14760 (Sat Oct 31 20:53:43 2009 UTC) changed this back to the original behaviour, but made it warn noisily too. r14762 (Sat Oct 31 22:59:35 2009 UTC) changed this back to return zero if directories were skipped. Note that this is an issue because recent Doxygen versions appear to have changed defaults and will tend to generate subdirectories. Thus, any package that currently does dohtml doxygen/html/ || die will, with Portage, do one of: * die with no explanation * die with an explanation * install broken links with no warning * install broken links with a warning -- Ciaran McCreesh
