Description Federico Ferri (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-11-15 12:46:11 UTC
when emerge outputs a message about installed packages which are masked:

!!! The following installed packages are masked:
- media-libs/amd64codecs-20071007 (masked by: package.mask)
# Steve Dibb <> (5 Nov 2008)
# Mask realplayer, real codecs for security, upstream issues, bug 245662

the "!!! ..." header goes to stderr, while the lines following it go on the stdout.
this is inconsistent with itself, and also with other "!!! ..." messages, which fully go on stderr

Reproducible: Always

Thanks, it's fixed in svn r11948 to redirect these warnings to stderr.
Comment 2 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2008-11-22 05:55:33 UTC
This is fixed in 2.2_rc15.
