Description Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2011-06-28 15:25:17 UTC
The sys-apps/baselayout-1.12.14-r1 ebuild uses ${PORTDIR} to create the /usr/portage directory. That doesn't seem really reliable, I'd suggest using explicit /usr/portage instead.

AFAICS baselayout-2 ebuilds don't create the portdir at all.
Comment 1 William Hubbs gentoo-dev 2011-06-28 16:56:01 UTC
Since baselayout-2 is stable everywhere now, there is no maintenance
planned for baselayout-1.
