Subject: [gentoo-dev] No more old-style virtuals
Date: Sat, 30 Apr 2011 17:41:15
1 With the conversion of linux-sources to a new-style virtual today,
2 all old-style virtuals are gone from the portage tree. See GLEP 37 and
3 bug 350792 for details.
5 Thanks to everyone who has helped with conversion or cleanup. I hope
6 that I didn't step on too many toes for the conversions I did myself.
8 I suggest that a warning for PROVIDE should be added to repoman,
9 mainly to prevent unintentional readdition of old-style virtuals when
10 ebuilds are copied from an overlay to the main tree.
