1 When pkgs are masked in the profile, it affects all variants of that pkgs, even the ones that are in other
2 overlays.
3 Example:
4 !!! The following installed packages are masked:
5 - sys-auth/sssd-9999::transmode (masked by: package.mask)
6 /usr/portage/profiles/package.mask:
7 # Matt Turner <mattst88@g.o> (2020-08-13)
8 # Masked for testing
10 My sssd-9999 is now masked.
12 Could the profile syntax be extended to include syntax allowed in /etc/portage ?
13 Then one could use the ::gentoo syntax (or so I hope)
