Description John Herdy 2002-08-02 11:07:55 UTC
I have created a flowchart (included as vector and png) of possible situations 
when upgrading a package. I'm not aware of Portage being prepared for all 
situations. To prepare Portage for all situations we need 3 USE-flags (i.e. 
libupdate, libupdaterisk, libupdateoverwrite). If more information is required 
please let me know. If an other format is required let me know. I really 
appriciate your opinion on this. 
John Herdy 
PS. I apologise for the lack of quality, I was in a hurry.

Comment 5 John Herdy 2002-08-02 17:15:50 UTC
I think your page didn't load completely. I have tried to open the attachment 
from multiple computers but had no problems. Would you please retry and 
confirm/decline if it works. Maybe someone else can try it also? 
John Herdy.

The PNG works for me.
Comment 7 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2002-08-13 10:23:52 UTC
it works for me too ... it was just the image viewer i used showed it as 
completely black (was paint shop pro ...)

i just didnt post an additional comment since it would take up useless space ;)
Comment 8 Brian Harring gentoo-dev 2004-04-08 20:10:36 UTC
Technically an enhancement, so marking it as such.
Side note, any, activity?
Comment 9 crontraconstantium 2004-07-10 13:31:20 UTC
Shouldn't those be FEATURES, not USE flags?
Comment 10 Brian Harring gentoo-dev 2005-02-27 21:39:41 UTC
Slapping this one shut.  explanation of ideas here is required- something more then just a flowchart.
What's this address?  Where is the failing of *current* portage in comparison, etc?
