19:52 < Betelgeuse> zmedico: ping
19:55 < zmedico> Betelgeuse: pong
19:57 < Betelgeuse> zmedico: What does Portage do to news item with News-Item-Format it does not support?
20:07 < zmedico> Betelgeuse: hmm, that header seems to be completely ignored atm. the parsing code for the other headers is pretty fault tolerant though, so unsupported stuff shouldn't make it crash (will just show a warning)
20:08 < Betelgeuse> zmedico: We should make it handle it like unsupported EAPI, tell people to upgrade Portage
20:08 < zmedico> yeah
20:08 < Betelgeuse> I think the news item format needs new filters
20:09 < Betelgeuse> will open a bug
