Description poletti.marco 2012-10-31 11:29:14 UTC
Disclaimer: this bug has been filed in a semi-automated manner.

When emerging the package media-fonts/urw-fonts-2.4.9, the following elog messages are displayed:

 * If you upgraded from urw-fonts-2.1-r2 some fonts will look a bit
 * different. Take a look at bug #208990 if interested.

Such messages should only be displayed when the package is upgraded from an old enough package (and possibly for new installs).
These situations can be checked in the ebuild as follows:

if has_version '<media-fonts/urw-fonts-1.0'; then

Or, if the message should also be displayed for new installs:

if !has_version 'media-fonts/urw-fonts' || has_version '<media-fonts/urw-fonts-1.0'; then

Remember to replace 1.0 with the right version number.

See the tracker bug 440214 for more details.

I came here to report this myself.

The original bug 208990 is just over 6 years old now - I doubt that there remains anyone affected, upgrading from urw-fonts-2.1-r2.

I think the ewarn message can just be completely removed. This is an easy bug closure for someone. ;)
