Description Tom Simnett 2007-02-04 20:25:43 UTC
A suggestion for portage/emerge. When emerge is run with the -uD flags, hence providing the ability to break reverse dependencies, a notice should be provided at the end of a build session saying that revdep-rebuild should be run, in case reverse dependencies were broken.
