13 The feature is not bad, but how it is implemented is.
15 With autounmask you get a notice that you have something to change, then
16 look up to the portage presented list and see that the changes are
17 already there. Then you are wondering why portage says that you have to
18 do something that is already done and assume it is a bug.
20 Such a reaction started this thread.
22 Now that I know how to read it and what to expect I can work with it and
23 see that it is not so bad after all.
25 The change was unexpected and contrary to reasonable expectation mainly
26 because there was no information before or after this change. It needed
27 this thread to clear how it works and how to read ist.
