"normal" is not the same thing as "always". unless you're the maintainer, you have no idea whether old versions are kept there on purpose. ive had people delete older versions of packages on me simply because they made this invalid assumption without talking to the maintainer. the rest of the thread is irrelevant as this point was not made. a quick check of your list shows wine/uclibc shouldnt be blindly culled.

i dont plan on fixing my ebuilds soonish since this isnt a terribly important issue, but they'll get fixed at some point -mike
