Subject: [gentoo-dev] deprecation of SANDBOX_DISABLED

1 Hola.
3 Subject says it all; SANDBOX_DISABLED functions as (essentially)
4 RESTRICT="sandbox", except sandbox is left on for pkg_setup .
6 This is pretty much redundant, considering it's usage. People stick
7 it in the global scope; if you _must_ turn off the sandbox for a
8 specific phase, use SANDBOX_ON=0/1 instead. If you need to disable
9 sandbox across the board, restrict="sandbox" is your friend.
11 Since there are still ebuilds in the tree that would be schmooked by
12 it, it's not going to hit in the coming version, but I'd expect it to
13 be dead next version after unless people have a really good reason why
14 it should live on.
16 So... thoughts? Yes it's minor, but it's a matter of cleaning
17 up/simplifying portage code, and removing redundancy.
