Subject: [gentoo-user] ~40 new perl-related ebuilds, why???
Date: Thu, 30 Sep 2010 16:23:15
Now this really scared me:

I just updated portage tree and checked if there are some updates
to install. To my surprise a huge list came with ~40 new ebuilds:

  # emerge --pretend --update --deep --newuse world

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

[ebuild     U ] sys-fs/e2fsprogs-1.41.12 [1.41.11]

What happened since yesterday, why suddenly so many ebuilds want
to be newly installed? I checked changelogs for gettext, e2fsprogs
and e2fsprogs-libs but did not find any clue about what caused
all this perl-stuff to be pulled up. Can someone explain it to me?
