While cleaning up my .../etc/make.conf file, I noticed that there appear to be a number of packages which use USE=git to enable optional support for dev-vcs/git. Should USE=git become a global USE flag? parakeet ~ # grep -Fe ":git " /usr/portage/profiles/use.local.desc app-portage/layman:git - Support dev-vcs/git based overlays dev-python/anyvc:git - Add support for Git dev-util/kdevplatform:git - Enable Git version control support dev-util/metro:git - Enable support for git snapshots dev-util/monodevelop:git - Enable Git version control support dev-util/qt-creator:git - enable git plugin dev-vcs/cvs2svn:git - Support for dev-vcs/git dev-vcs/fromcvs:git - Add support for conversion to dev-vcs/git repositories dev-vcs/rabbitvcs:git - Enable plugin for dev-vcs/git kde-base/dolphin-plugins:git - Enable support for the git VCS sys-devel/gettext:git - When running `autopoint`, use git to store the internal development files; this requires git at runtime, but will be faster/smaller than raw archives www-apps/redmine:git - Enable support for dev-vcs/git xfce-extra/thunar-vcs-plugin:git - Enable dev-vcs/git support parakeet ~ # Where dev-util/metro and sys-devel/gettext appear to have another meaning for their USE=git flag.
