Subject: [gentoo-dev] [PATCH] Profile cleanup, pt. 3: arch/base
Date: Mon, 13 Feb 2017 14:41:10
1 Hi,
3 Here's the third part of my profile cleanup series. This time it's
4 focused on moving arch-related stuff from base/ to arch/base/.
6 The main goal is to have a clear profile inheritance. Since all arch/*
7 profiles inherit arch/base (not top-level base!), it is reasonable to
8 do the 'mask on all arches, unmask on specific' things there.
10 I should note that I didn't touch the part focused on stable masking
11 that applies to all arches uniformly. I'm not sure whether it should
12 be moved to arch/base or kept in base since it applies to all arches.
13 I guess it doesn't really matter though. It might also be reasonable
14 to create a dedicated directory for this specific use in arch/base.
16 The change is almost NFC, except for:
18 - little flag changes on ppc64 64le profile (ibm flag is masked now,
19 ppc64: please advise if it's desired or undesirable),
21 - flag masking changes on Prefix profiles (Fabian is already testing
22 them),
24 - flag masking changes to the dead uclibc/ profiles.
26 Please review.
