Description Evgeny 2009-10-10 16:16:33 UTC
1. Add set named mygnome with anyone content, for i.e. "gnome-base/gnome-desktop"
2. Install this set: emerge @mygnome
3. Delete this set
4. Reinstall package: emerge gnome-base/gnome-desktop
5. Execute command and look error:

# emerge --depclean -p

 * Always study the list of packages to be cleaned for any obvious
 * mistakes. Packages that are part of the world set will always
 * be kept.  They can be manually added to this set with
 * `emerge --noreplace <atom>`.  Packages that are listed in
 * package.provided (see portage(5)) will be removed by
 * depclean, even if they are part of the world set.
 * As a safety measure, depclean will not remove any packages
 * unless *all* required dependencies have been resolved.  As a
 * consequence, it is often necessary to run `emerge --update
 * --newuse --deep @system @world` prior to depclean.

PackageSetNotFound: mygnome

6. Add file in sets directory: # touch mygnome
7. emerge --depclean -p — works fine

I case you didn't know, removing mygnome from /var/lib/portage/world_sets will make the error go away.

This bug is no longer present. It now prints:

>>> These are the packages that would be unmerged:
 * Unknown set '@deleted_set' in /var/lib/portage/world_sets

and keeps working.
