Description Tupone Alfredo gentoo-dev 2022-11-10 20:22:53 UTC
Ada has a strict rules on dependency between its modules. Sometimes is impossible to build from source the gcc[ada] for an older version with a newer gcc[ada]. That depends a lot on when the ada part is updated. I think gentoo should raise a warning, but not block, the gcc build when this condition apply

Reproducible: Always
