mail-mta/esmtp-0.5.0-r2 cannot be installed because net-mail/mailwrapper-0.2.1-r1 is masked. The reason given is
# Fernando J. Pereda <firstname.lastname@example.org> (25 April 2005)
# mask these until the new mailwrapper/mailer-config scheme is ready
# it is secure to unmask them to test
Does that date seriously mean it's not ready after 2.5 years?
I did unmask this and was able to install the current 0.6.0 of estmp and it seems to be working fine.
mailwrapper-0.2.1 is not masked in any way; nor is esmtp-0.5.0-r1; please don't file bugs about masked ebuilds depending on masked ebuilds.

I'm referring to mailwrapper-0.2.1-r1 and esmtp-0.5.0-r2, both of which are masked.
I don't understand your comment either. What are we supposed to do then?
Unmask both ebuilds or unmask none.
Why are they being masked and how do we get feedback to get that resolved for Gentoo if you are just summarily closing these reports?
They might never get unmasked; anyway - move this debate to the relevant please.
