Description poletti.marco 2012-10-31 10:58:35 UTC
Disclaimer: this bug has been filed in a semi-automated manner.

When emerging the package app-portage/portage-utils-0.10, the following elog messages are displayed:

 * /etc/portage/postsync.d/q-reinitialize has been installed for convenience
 * If you wish for it to be automatically run at the end of every --sync:
 *    # chmod +x /etc/portage/postsync.d/q-reinitialize
 * Normally this should only take a few seconds to run but file systems
 * such as ext3 can take a lot longer.  To disable, simply do:
 *    # chmod -x /etc/portage/postsync.d/q-reinitialize

Such messages should only be displayed when the package is a new install.
These situations can be checked in the ebuild as follows:

if ! has_version 'app-portage/portage-utils'; then

See the tracker bug 440214 for more details.
