Description Dominique Michel 2012-07-14 08:24:50 UTC
x11-misc/transset-df have been masked because another software did an update. If I follow this logic, I would mask xine with every mplayer update, mask pulseaudio with every jack-audio-connection-kit update, and mask firefox with every konqueror update.

x11-misc/transset-df and x11-apps/transset are 2 different pieces of software with different features. 

Also, even if they made a new transset version, they didn't change the features of this software. A comparaison of both show us than transset-df can do what transset can do, but that transset just caanot do most of the transset-df features.

In conclusion, if you absolutly want to remove one of those software from portage, remove the one that have the less features, that is apps/transset. I also think that the best thing to do would be to keep both of them.

In fact, the transset-df features have been merged into transset. The problem is than the man page is not updated with the changes. As the new features are not documented into the man page, I didn't even try to run a transset-df command like "transset --help".

This is about transset now, not transset-df.
Comment 7 Matt Turner gentoo-dev 2017-01-29 01:35:07 UTC
I think all of this was fixed by
