Description Carlo Marcelo Arenas Belon 2007-12-23 06:39:48 UTC
trying to use git cvsimport fails with the following error :

Can't exec "cvsps": No such file or directory at /usr/bin/git-cvsimport line 624.
Could not start cvsps: No such file or directory

adding a dependency to dev-util/cvsps will solve the problem, but most likely adding a use flag and patch to make it conditional would be even better.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.emerge -Dnvupt git
2.git cvsimport

Actual Results:  
failure because of missing cvsps

Expected Results:  
git-cvsimport to succeed or not be there if not all required dependencies were installed
