Description Manuel Rüger (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-05-19 14:52:34 UTC
During the installation of packages I want portage to be verbose, but on "emerge --info" should be kept short and nice.

The problem:
"emerge --info" takes care of EMERGE_DEFAULT_OPTS

If you have set EMERGE_DEFAULTS_OPTS="-v", this will give you a great amount of data, you possibly don't want to see (because many of them are not useful and some even might harm privacy, if pastebin'd).

So please consider adding a new var EMERGE_INFO_OPTS, that will be evaluated instead of EMERGE_DEFAULT_OPTS, when emerge --info is processed.

I think a new variable would be too much for this. How about if we make it so that you can get your desired behavior by setting --verbose-info=n in EMERGE_DEFAULT_OPTS?

yes you are right. this is the better solution and solves my usecase, too
