12 Yeah, sorry about that. I think my understanding was clouded by all the
13 peripheral discussion regarding stable/unstable and different versions
14 of portage. That and the fact that I had just gotten out of bed when I
15 read it :P
17 They OP could have simply said "Hey, when I synced I saw a message that
18 I there was a new portage available, but when I run 'emerge -up world'
19 or 'emerge -up system' it doesn't show the updated package." Hooray.
21 Nevertheless, as has already been said, yeah, it appears that system
22 includes virtual/package-manager and not specifically sys-apps/portage
23 (how diplomatic), so unless you run emerge with '--deep' or explicitly
24 update the package name then it won't count.
26 As for stable vs. unstable... I still don't understand what that has to
27 do with it.
