Description Sergey Popov gentoo-dev 2012-10-15 10:13:21 UTC
net-dns/dnssec-tools has initscript donutsd, which contains such code:

depend() {
        need mta

net-dns/dnssec-tools ebuild does not contain any dependencies on virtual/mta and such like. But, even if it contains such dependency, it would also fail in my case, cause mail-mta/ssmtp[mta](which is the first one-of-many dependency candidate in virtual/mta) does not install any initscript which provides mta.

Adding net-mail herd(one of virtual/mta maintainers) to CC to get their attention too.

CCing qa@ here

Guys, what are your thoughts? mail-mta/ssmtp is not first preferred mailer now, so bug severity is lowered, but it's still an issue.

What can we do here? Provide dummy initscript for ssmtp with 'provide mta'? Or we can solve this in other way?
