Description Moritz Schlarb 2011-09-29 14:32:38 UTC
I recently tried writing my own ebuild and I used a for loop to install all contents of a directory, until someone pointed out, that I simply could use doins -r instead.
I can't find any mention about the recursive behaviour in the devmanual page:
This could propably be added!

Reproducible: Always
