Subject: [gentoo-dev] missing SLOTs
Date: Thu, 27 Jun 2002 09:31:08
1 After looking at why emerge clean wouldn't get rid of older hdparm and openssh I found that
2 the ebuilds for the old versions didn't have a SLOT so portage assumes nothing != 0 and
3 keeps both versions.
4 But aren't all ebuilds supposed to have SLOT defined?
5 Maybe temporarily until all such cases are fixed emerge could presume missing slot means 0?
7 And if this should be a bug-report would it be much harder for the core portage tree maintainters
8 to have ebuild fixes and submits dealt with on a separate mailing list instead of bugzilla.
9 I personally find the latter horrible and a lot harder to use than simply mailing a patch
10 but again that's just my oppinion.Another benefit of a mailing list would be that people
11 subscribed would see if/when new ebuilds are worked on.Maybe one can subscribe to bugzilla
12 as well but sometimes ebuilds are put in another bug category...I'll just stop now.
