18 Not quite. The sequence in which the ebuilds were run is lost when the
19 discrete logs are your only source of tracing through, although one
20 could attempt to reconstruct it using the timestamps in the file names
21 of the ebuild logs. They also do not contain the results of the "pretend
22 depclean" that occurs at the end of an emerge job. Moreover, they do
23 not contain the report of the number of configuration files that need
24 updating by cfg-update (or the like).

30 I ended up switching off the emailing of ebuild logs, as it mostly
31 duplicates text that is already in the emerge job output. These days,
32 I primarily use the ebuild logs as uploads to Gentoo's bugzilla when
33 there is a problem to be reported.
