Description david.antliff 2003-10-13 19:41:09 UTC
Sometimes when merging changes between an existing file and a new update with
etc-update, the need arises to manually edit the merge result BEFORE it is used
to overwrite the existing file. For example, external merge tools sometimes need
a little help afterwards. Can we have a menu option that opens $EDITOR on the
intermediate merged file and permits manual changes?

supposed to be fixed in 2.0.50 which is stable now. If this bug is not fixed please reopen.

Excellent - functionality is present in portage-2.0.50 and works well. Thank you.
