Description Allen Brooker (AllenJB) 2009-11-06 12:15:10 UTC
I would like to see support for package.accept_keywords in profiles as discussed in bug #55321

With the current method of using package.keywords, it's easy to accidentally unmask packages normally masked by missing keywords (eg. -9999 live packages) without realizing it (the affected package versions may not exist when the profile is created)
Comment 1 Grzegorz Kulewski 2010-08-09 00:39:02 UTC
Yeah, that would be a very good feature for my profiles.

Right now I have to use ugly hack that walks the profiles and regenerates package.keywords after every change.

This is in 2.2_rc68, but I'll leave this bug open until it's in an unmasked version.
Comment 4 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2010-09-04 08:16:59 UTC
This is fixed in 2.1.9.
Comment 5 Sebastian Luther (few) 2010-09-14 08:02:10 UTC
Could someone please explain what you use this file for? More specifically, what you are able to do with it that you can't do with package.keywords.

Comment #0 talks about not accidentally keywording live ebuilds, but those should be masked by package.mask anyway.
