1 often times when i get a bug report about certain packages, there's
2 information about that package that i usually ask for ... i wonder if this
3 can be automated
4
5 perhaps extend the syntax of profiles/info_pkgs:
6 <atom> [command to pass to system()]
7 sys-libs/glibc /lib/libc.so.6
8
9 then when people run `emerge --verbose --info`, for every atom matched as
10 installed, it'd automatically run the listed command and display the output
11
12 useful ? security issue waiting to explode ? crazy wacky monkey ?
13 -mike
