Description Andrei Slavoiu 2018-07-16 21:14:23 UTC
The rest of the packages in the portage tree that have optional support for libidn2 require both use flags to be enabled in order to use it. bind and bind-tools are the only packages that have a conflict between the 2 use flags. Since it makes a lot more sense to use the idn useflag to enable support for idn and the libidn2 useflag to switch between implementations like the rest of the packages do, I think this conflict should be removed.
