Subject: [gentoo-portage-dev] Few things, which imho would make portage better
Date: Tue, 14 Mar 2006 11:03:27
1 I think that it would make things more clear and simple if portage did
2 support the following (maybe some are already included, but not found by
3 me):
5 * Add package to "world" checking all dependencies, but not emerging
6 * Remove package from "world" without unmerging
7 * Save all important messages into file instead of beeping (i may be away
8 from home); optionally replay them at end of update
9 * When updating or installing new package, if something goes wrong, still
10 emerge other packages, which havent failed packages as dependencies -- in my
11 case, for example, when i do --update, for example, then the fact that
12 update of first package fails does not definitely mean that i dont want to
13 update others

21 If you don't do it excellently, dont do it at all. Because if it's not
22 excellent, it won't be profitable or fun, and if you're not in business for
23 fun or profit, what the hell are you doing here?
