1 Hello, I want to raise a issue with the way that
2 package integrity verification is done by portage. For
3 an example of such an issue see bug 136742.
4 The idea is that portage now checks the Manifest as a
5 whole, not allowing a version of the package to be
6 emerged if any of the files mentioned by the Manifest
7 fail the verification. This makes unstable ebuilds
8 wich change often and have a tendency to break from
9 time to time prevent the emerge of a stable version of
10 the same package.
11 Do you think there is any way to fix this in portage?
