Subject: [gentoo-dev] Base/use.defaults, eds as a X86 default use
Date: Wed, 03 Aug 2005 09:35:06
Would like to first thank Carsten Lohrke, Carlo, for helping me find the exact
location of the mysterious appearance of eds to a on default status.

*story time* After a recent emerge sync, I came face to face with quite a
pecular list of packages that wanted to be installed. As I have -gnome in my
make.conf it just was confusing. Until I did a emerge -avuDt world. I noticed
that gaim had turned up with a eds use flag. Evolution Data server seems like
something that should not be in the base/use.defaults, at least as far as I can
tell. Anything that can of course make use of eds, will require the new packages
as dependencies. For those not using gnome, this can be a bit of a pain to hunt
down and see what is going on. 

Course we all know that a simple -eds will fix the problem, I guess I'm just
looking for a why  it was enabled by default?

For reference as to the start of this inquiry:
