Description Markos Chandras (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-09-13 21:07:09 UTC
Since portage-2.1.9 [1], package.keywords file is deprecated. package.accept_keywords should be used instead

Please update documentation

Maybe there are other places that refer to package.keywords as well

Comment 1 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2010-09-13 22:15:03 UTC
I would wait until after portage-2.1.9.x is marked stable before updating the docs, since package.accept_keywords isn't supported by earlier versions. With portage-2.1.9.x the package.keywords file still works fine, and it doesn't trigger any deprecation warnings.
Comment 2 nm (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-09-14 00:26:18 UTC
Definitely. We only document stable packages and stable Portage versions. Do reopen in a month or two once 2.1.9 goes stable. Thanks!
Comment 3 Joeri Capens 2010-11-28 22:35:03 UTC
Portage was recently stabilized:
Comment 4 nm (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-11-29 00:35:47 UTC
Still not stable on ppc64. Also, we need the installation media to start shipping with it, otherwise we'll break the docs if we have differing instructions in the handbook compared to the rest of our guides.
Comment 5 nm (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2011-03-02 09:26:48 UTC
I fixed all references in the guides and handbooks in /doc/en/. I guess the future is now the present, so I need to change p.keywords on my own boxes!
