Description Christoph Mende (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-06-21 13:01:09 UTC
for those people using CVS checkouts which are probably owned by their user, running emerge --sync on that checkout will change the permissions to root:root
Comment 1 Marius Mauch (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-06-23 15:52:17 UTC
Reduced the check so that sync is allowed if you're a member of the portage group and have write access to $PORTDIR.
Comment 2 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2007-06-29 02:54:45 UTC
This has been released in 2.1.3_rc6.
