My most recently installed python packages
have all their .pyc and .py file timestamps
set the same, eg:
$ emerge dev-python/twisted
$ cd /usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/twisted/internet
$ ls -gG base.*
-rw-r--r-- 1 12689 Nov 6 15:49 base.py
-rw-r--r-- 1 20603 Nov 6 15:49 base.pyc
So (as a non-root user):
$ python -v -c 'import twisted.internet.base' 2>&1 | grep base
# ..../base.pyc has bad mtime
import twisted.internet.base # from ..../base.py
# can't create ..../base.pyc
.pyc files which are no newer than their .py files are useless!
I think this happens on merge because the
timestamps on the files made in /var/tmp by
$ ebuild /usr/portage/dev-python/twisted/twisted-1.0.0.ebuild install
still an issue ?
I assume not
