Description Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2011-08-08 08:07:45 UTC
Suppose that package Y depends on a specific version of package X. If you have an upgrade for both packages, and the package X upgrade succeeds but the package Y upgrade fails, it commonly triggers a state in which the installed instance of package Y has an unsatisfied dependency for the previous version of package X. This causes emerge --keep-going to bail out, but we really want it to just prune off the broken part(s) of the dependency graph and keep going.

Comment 2 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2011-08-11 03:32:47 UTC
This should fix some similar cases:;a=commit;h=72137f634878c4b0ef54287dd4a33fa2240a68f7

This will fix your particular case only if (app-editors/vim-7.3.189::gentoo, installed) got pulled into the graph indirectly via a satisfied build-time dependency.
Comment 3 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2011-08-11 03:39:10 UTC
For now, I'll just assume that this is fixed unless we can prove otherwise.
Comment 4 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2011-08-12 12:59:26 UTC
This is fixed in and 2.2.0_alpha51.
