Unless you found something special with EAPI-4, then there is nothing lost. dodoc never had the ability to work on directories in EAPI<4. There was just a bug in portage, which did not let dodoc die, when it was called on a directory. This now should, according to the mentioned bug 356389, show a QA warning and at some later point die as it should have done from the beginning.

Please give me some common example for such a failure.

So if dodoc does just qawarn, how should ebuilds now fail with dodoc called on directories?

doins was never ment to work on directories, unless you used the -r switch.

I currently cannot really see your problem, maybe you mixed some facts about dodoc and doins? Otherwise, please clarify this. -- Thomas Sachau Gentoo Linux Developer
