Description Andrew Gaffney (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-07-25 14:12:55 UTC
Currently, there's no way for portage to spit out a list of valid sets. With pkgcore, if you specify an invalid set on the commandline, it will tell you what the valid ones are:

kirara ~ # pmerge -p -s foo
No set called 'foo'!
known sets: ['glsa', 'installed', 'versioned-installed', 'system', 'world', 'vuln']

Can we get this same functionality for portage?

This is fixed in 2.2_rc4.
