Description Michael Mair-Keimberger (iamnr3) 2011-06-18 17:34:06 UTC
Recently i played around with portageq and found a very easy way to let it crash :)
It happens with portage (stable) on amd64 + amd64-hardened and with portage (unstable) on x86.

When i type:
g86 ~ # portageq all_best_visible
ill get a nice traceback. I know that they are parameters missing, but i guess a crash is not the best way to let me know that :)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. portageq all_best_visible
Actual Results:  
ERROR: insufficient parameters!
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/portageq", line 776, in <module>
  File "/usr/bin/portageq", line 757, in main                                                                           
    retval = function(args)

IndexError: list index out of range 

Expected Results:  
ERROR: insufficient parameters! (like with "portageq get_repos")

This is in 2.2.0_alpha42, but I'll leave this bug open until it's in an unmasked release.
