1 Hi,

3 Since portage-2.1.7.x is stable now, with ACCEPT_LICENSE support, we
4 can think about deprecating check_license [1]. This will allow us to
5 avoid using PROPERTIES=interactive in cases when it is due to
6 check_license alone, since anything with a license in the @EULA
7 license group is automatically masked by the default
8 ACCEPT_LICENSE="* -@EULA" portage configuration [2].
