Description Christian Riis Soerensen 2010-01-04 16:56:03 UTC
I think its unnecessarily cumbersome to jump from emerge to nano to emerge etc.. many times if I run into masked packages that depend on other masked packages. Therefore I would like the feature that the masked package presented on the screen can be added by the user from within emerge.

As I see it there is no downside to this and it presents no new problems.

Reproducible: Always
