Subject: [gentoo-dev] do not rely on internal variables used by portage functions
Date: Sat, 31 Mar 2007 22:17:48
1 we've noticed that many things in the tree abuse the fact that the portage
2 helpers utilize environment variables to communicate ... for example, people
3 setting DOCDESTTREE by hand rather than using `docinto`
5 unless some one can give me a valid reason for this stuff, the plan is to fix
6 these ebuilds and change portage internals so those vars dont exist
