Summary: app-portage/flaggie breaks soft link after doing a cleanup
Product: Portage Development Reporter: Yichao Zhou <broken.zhou>

Description Yichao Zhou 2012-02-06 15:53:04 UTC
It is usual that we link some use and keywords file from overlay.

For example:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 67 Feb  6 23:47 kde-4.8.keywords -> /var/lib/layman/kde/Documentation/package.keywords/kde-4.8.keywords
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 52 Feb  6 23:47 sage.keywords -> /var/lib/layman/sage-on-gentoo/package.keywords/sage

flaggie --cleanup will remove the soft link and generate a new file.  This is not desirable behavior.  I think it will be better that we just leave this soft link unchanged.(Since they may change by a overlay upgrade)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
flaggie --cleanup
Actual Results:  
Soft link files get messed

Expected Results:  
They remain unchanged.

Hrmh, hard one. Maybe we shall just ignore files linked from outside /etc?
Comment 2 Yichao Zhou 2013-09-16 09:35:05 UTC
Yes..  Is this fixed?

> Yes..  Is this fixed?

I was waiting for answer/suggestions. Even better, a patch would be appreciated since I'm short on time lately.
