Description poletti.marco 2012-10-31 10:58:39 UTC
Disclaimer: this bug has been filed in a semi-automated manner.

When emerging the package app-shells/bash-completion-1.3, the following elog messages are displayed:

 * Any user can enable the module completions without editing their
 * .bashrc by running:
 *     eselect bashcomp enable <module>
 * The system administrator can also be enable this globally with
 *     eselect bashcomp enable --global <module>
 * Make sure you at least enable the base module! Additional completion
 * modules can be found by running
 *     eselect bashcomp list
 * If you use non-login shells you still need to source
 * /etc/profile.d/ in your ~/.bashrc.

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-shells/bash-completion'; then

This looks fixed in 2.1-r1's ebuild since the message mentioned in Comment #0 no longer exists there.
