11 I don't have app-crypt/gentoo-keys installed. I seem to be doing okay
12 without it.
14 In any case, on principle, we shouldn't add anything else to @system. No
15 one agrees on how we should treat @system packages as far as
16 dependencies go, and the whole idea is a stinky pile of dirty laundry
17 that we should work to make explicit instead.
19 What problem would this solve? (Is adding gentoo-keys to @system the
20 least bad way to solve it?)
