Description Thomas Deutschmann (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2021-04-06 15:34:23 UTC
See bug 768675 which I filed with a package list like

> app-admin/rsyslog-8.2102.0 *
> dev-libs/libfastjson-0.99.9 *
> dev-libs/librdkafka-1.6.1 *
> www-servers/civetweb-1.12 * 

At the time of creating that bug, www-servers/civetweb had no stable keywords.

nattka ignored the bug without telling me why.

Running nattka from command-line revealed

> INFO:nattka:Skipping because of incomplete keywords

Would it be possible to make the following enhancements to nattka?

1) Instead of silently ignoring bugs, nattka should post a message in bug that nattka failed and remove CC-ARCHES keyword for example.

2) Instead of just telling user bug was skipped because of incomplete keywords, please tell user the line/package from package list which is incomplete/caused nattka to skip.
