> grep dev-lang/v8 /usr/portage/{www-client/chromium/chromium-21.0.1171.0.ebuild,net-libs/nodejs/nodejs-0.7.8.ebuild}
/usr/portage/www-client/chromium/chromium-21.0.1171.0.ebuild:29:        >=dev-lang/v8-
/usr/portage/net-libs/nodejs/nodejs-0.7.8.ebuild:24:    <dev-lang/v8-3.1

I'm not sure if this is a valid bug or what the general policy is in these cases. I just took a quick look, nodejs-7.10 is available on github, maybe it is fixed there.

I can confirm this bug. I can't install both at the same time too

It would be nice if nodejs didn't cause that downgrade, so assigning accordingly.

  30 May 2012; Patrick Lauer <> nodejs-0.6.17.ebuild,
  nodejs-0.6.18.ebuild, nodejs-0.7.8.ebuild:
  Limiting v8 dep to avoid crashes #417879

We'll have to keep that dependency until node.js upstream releases properly fixed versions.
