Subject: [gentoo-user] dev-haskell/parsec not rebuilt before dev-haskell/network, despite network depending on it

1 Hi all,
3 I have a question that I wanted to ask here before I open a potentially
4 erroneous bug about it.
6 For the ipython nbconvert command I need pandoc, which depends on various
7 Haskell packages. Yesterday ghc was upgraded to 7.6.3-r1, which triggered
8 rebuilds (AFAIU due to sub-slot dependencies). The interesting thing is that
9 dev-haskell/parsec is a dependency of dev-haskepp/network, but was *not* built
10 before it, such that my emerge @world died at that point. I ran
11 haskell-updater afterwards, which got the order right, so that ipython
12 nbconvert still works.
14 For completeness, here are the dependencies of the network-, copied
15 straight out of the ebuild:
17 RDEPEND=">=dev-haskell/parsec-3.0:=[profile?]
18 >=dev-lang/ghc-6.10.4:="
20 >=dev-haskell/cabal-1.8
21 test? ( dev-haskell/hunit
22 dev-haskell/test-framework
23 dev-haskell/test-framework-hunit
24 dev-haskell/test-framework-quickcheck2
25 )"
27 From the above I would think that, since $RDEPEND is a subset of $DEPEND,
28 parsec should have been rebuilt *before* network. Am I wrong about that?
30 I guess I'm wondering whether this is a bug in the ebuild (I don't know the
31 details of the sub-slot syntax), a bug in portage, or neither.
33 Greetings
