Attachments: RUBY_TARGETS USE flags warning

RUBY_TARGETS USE flags warning

In /etc/portage/make.conf, I have:

EMERGE_DEFAULT_OPTS="--ask --ask-enter-invalid --backtrack=9999 --changed-deps-report --complete-graph --deep --jobs=12 --tree --verbose --verbose-conflicts --with-bdeps=y"

When I execute "emerge -uN @world", I see this USE flags processing warning:
(see ruby_targets_warning.txt attachment)

By the way, I do not set RUBY_TARGETS option in make.conf (it is default).

But when I add
to /etc/portage/package.mask/ruby.mask, I see no RUBY_TARGETS USE flags warnings (it works properly and does not try to emerge dev-lang/ruby:2.5).

Is it a bug of Ruby-related eclasses?

Don't do that.

This can't be helped because we can only provide a single RUBY_TARGETS default for both stable and testing. We've opted to make this default match stable so that things for stable users work out of the box. If you are on testing you should either include the new ruby versions in RUBY_TARGETS yourself or mask the new versions until they are stable.
