Subject: [gentoo-devhelp] dodoc vs directories
Date: Fri, 17 Feb 2012 21:48:20
It seems that dodoc recently has lost recusivity in portage master.

Several ebuilds (including in the main tree) now fail because of that.

Bug implies that the goal
is only to qawarn, not error, when passed a directory.  And dodoc itself
seems to work that way.

But doins does not (cf:

  :; grep -C3 '$x is a directory' /usr/lib/portage/bin/ebuild-helpers/doins

for the details).

Is this a bug in portage or should I submit bugs, blocking 356389, for
each failure?
