Description Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2008-03-25 13:25:22 UTC
Currently, when I run "emerge -avuDN world" mask warning is shown at top of ouput:
!!! The following installed packages are masked:
Calculating world dependencies  ..- dev-util/jam-2.5 (masked by:
# Ryan Hill <> (16 Mar 2008)
# Mask for removal on 16 Apr 2008
# upstream unresponsive, replaced by dev-util/ftjam
# Bug #173703
... done!

[ebuild     U ] media-libs/libart_lgpl-2.3.20 [2.3.19-r1] USE="-debug" 296

The problem is when a lot of packages will be updated, in that case, I have to manually scroll up for viewing the message. 

I think that would be better show this message at the end of output instead (like is currently done with blockers)


Reproducible: Always
