Description Allen Brooker (AllenJB) 2009-05-06 08:53:56 UTC
--deselect appears to not currently work for sets.

Actual result:
$ emerge --deselect @ajb-kde-3.5
superuser access is required... adding --pretend to options.

!!! '@ajb-kde-3.5' is not a valid package atom.
!!! Please check ebuild(5) for full details.

Expected result:
The @ajb-kde-3.5 set is removed from world_sets.

This is fixed in 2.2_rc68. We're still missing support for this in combination with --depclean and --prune actions.
