8 In the case of kde ebuilds it's a slip-up, a side effect of kde-4.6 removal...
9 some code got refactored and moved to different package names. E.g.
10 kdebindings-ruby is now partly in korundum and krossruby... When one of us
11 then runs
12 find kde-base -name *4.6.5*ebuild -exec cvs rm -f {} +
13 and commits, oops, suddenly we have an empty dir kdebindings-ruby... :|
14 Obviously undesired but can happen, and repoman does not complain (yet).
16 (It makes no sense to do any last-riting here, in effect this is more like a
17 package move and we try to make it as transparent to the users as possible.)
19 Cheers, A
