It doesn't ignore what the user wants. It just doesn't look where you think it should. If someone really wants to use newer packages to bootstrap, they can edit the packages file in their profile. Otherwise things can potentially break and we get more bug reports. I actually believe that the package versions in the profile should probably be upped because it's somewhat outdated. However, if you want to tune your settings for bootstrap, do it in places other than make.conf and don't file bug reports if something breaks in the process. Users can do anything they want in make.conf after bootstapping. If someone has a special need to use newer packages during bootstrap, they can edit profiles/<profile>/packages. -- Jon Portnoy -- gentoo-dev@g.o mailing list
