Subject: [gentoo-dev] [RFC] Enable userpriv by default? Support RESTRICT=userpriv? Interaction with prefix in EAPI 3?
Date: Fri, 11 Dec 2009 20:18:35
Message-Id: 4B22A759.1090509@gentoo.org
Should we enable FEATURES=userpriv by default? If we do that then do
we also need to support RESTRICT=userpriv? Maybe RESTRICT=userpriv
should not be supported on the grounds that it is never justified?
What about prefix support (in EAPI 3), which often doesn't have root
privileges?
