Description Thilo Bangert (RETIRED) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-02-17 22:22:38 UTC
This is a note that in the council meeting on 02/12/2009 the
    function 'prepalldocs' is banned for use in ebuilds with EAPIs 0 1
    and 2. If you want some functionality from this function, please
    propose a new function or clearly defined behavior for prepalldocs
    for a new EAPI.

Comment 2 Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2016-06-27 18:02:20 UTC
Let's reuse this for all prep* functions since all of them are not PMS-y and have no love from QA team.
Comment 3 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2016-06-29 11:06:00 UTC
(I have just seen new prep* calls being introduced even today because of the usage of games.eclass it seems)
Comment 4 Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2018-03-25 10:49:33 UTC
Oh, great. There's also hidden STRIP_MASK feature that's used a lot.
