Subject: [gentoo-dev] emerge -U getting removed?
Date: Mon, 20 Sep 2004 13:24:23
1 Just this morning (afternoon/evening) on #-dev I got to talking to some
2 people about the usefulness of "emerge -U." I was wondering if someone
3 had any clue as to why its being removed? I frequently mix packages in
4 ~x86 to test, or just to use newer revisions which are more stable and
5 with -U going away, I wont be able to update my machine without
6 downgrading a <insert explitive> load of packages.
8 Yes I know about editing package.keywords, but how much of a PITA is
9 that to have to add an entry for every package you emerge that is masked
10 for one reason or another.
12 Any thoughts, comments, or ideas of how you want to burn me at the
13 stake?
