Description Dirk Tilger 2011-06-28 09:02:20 UTC
I have set the "severe" FEATURE to get some protection against tampered rsync mirrors. However, not once could I not emerge a package for security reasons, although I'm using packages from all kind of overlays with non-signed Manifest's. I haven't knowingly trusted any keys so far.

Although I haven't set it explicitly, the "strict" FEATURE is active and bug 68906 points out there might be an issue then. However that bug is now 4 years old and I haven't found anything recent on the "severe" FEATURE.

It seems that FEATURES=severe is not implemented, so I've removed all references to it:;a=commit;h=75a3815d904ca29584fd89b25017538631053c3b

Bug 64258 is about eclass signatures and verification.
Comment 2 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2011-07-01 05:08:52 UTC
This is in 2.2.0_alpha42, but I'll leave this bug open until it's in an unmasked release.
Comment 3 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2011-07-03 17:34:36 UTC
This is fixed in
