16 My current script seems to miss some things. The reason this happens is
17 that the group of applications they're emerged in also contains some app
18 that breaks the emerge, perhaps because it's in package.mask or isn't
19 keyworded at least ~x86. Broken emerges don't get far enough to produce
20 blocking output, so it's falsely assumed to be a success for that group.
22 marienz suggested an idea for error handling last night, and I'll work
23 to figure something out.
25 Thanks,
26 Donnie
