Description Tiago Marques 2011-03-04 01:39:55 UTC

A recent plague of problems have showed up from the removal of .la files and lack of running "lafilefixer --justfixit" after merging the new package, like dbus.
I propose that all packages, like dbus, that are know to break other packages by this move should automatically run "lafilefixer --justfixit" after the package been merged to avoid further headaches to Gentoo users.
Is there anything stopping this? From what I've read here I saw nothing.

Reproducible: Always

You can use FEATURES="fixlafiles" to avoid these problems.

Right, so why is this burden being put on the users, if this is a recurrent situation? I'm just asking for more granularity here. If I use that feature, will it try to fix them everytime, even when not needed?

Best regards
