[20:17:02] <few_> zmedico: what happend to sets support?
[20:17:09] <few_> or better hwat did not happen ;)
[20:17:22] <few_> can't we just release what's there
[20:17:38] <few_> file based sets are the most useful stuff anyway
[20:17:46] <few_> and those are usable
[20:18:00] <zmedico> well, I guess that part that works is fine to release, though I'd keep the apis private
[20:18:49] <zmedico> not really interested in supporting those apis atm
[20:19:50] <few_> well, I don't care about the apis. maybe dol-sen would like to see parts of it available
[20:19:56] <few_> anyway do it!
[20:25:39] <zmedico> so, basically just a way to split up world into subsets
[20:26:02] <zmedico> using world_sets and /etc/portage/sets
[20:27:35] <few_> yeah
Comment 1 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2011-10-06 14:50:04 UTC
I think all we have to do is tweak SetConfig._create_default_config() and add some docs to man/portage.5
Comment 2 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2011-10-06 18:44:36 UTC
We should also tweak ensure_required_sets() and setconfig_fallback() to match the new SetConfig._create_default_config() configuration.
Comment 5 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2012-06-23 07:39:04 UTC
This is fixed in 2.1.11 and 2.2.0_alpha111.
Comment 6 Ulenrich 2012-06-23 10:05:02 UTC
This feature attempts to get further near a portage-2.2 release. This could have been indicated with a version bump to portage-2.1.85 
(instead of portage-2.1.11)
