7 I don't really like the idea of this without a companion patch that provides
8 some way to get a list of relevant env vars and their possible settings to
9 the user without having to look at the ebuild. The list of possiblities
10 could live in use.desc or a similar file, but at minimum the list of vars
11 needs to be provided.
13 Another patch is also required that will allow disabling of the QA check on
14 certain vars, preferably defined in a file in the tree similar to
15 info_vars. This would be used for vars such as USERLAND which are profile
16 defined.
18 In other words, don't kill the QA check without addressing the issue that
19 the QA check is warning about. ;)
