Description poletti.marco 2012-10-31 10:59:00 UTC
Disclaimer: this bug has been filed in a semi-automated manner.

When emerging the package net-misc/modemmanager-, the following elog messages are displayed:

 * To control your modem without needing to enter the root password,
 * add your user account to the 'plugdev' group.
 * If your USB modem shows up as a Flash drive when you plug it in,
 * You should install sys-apps/usb_modeswitch which will automatically
 * switch it over to USB modem mode whenever you plug it in.

Such messages should only be displayed when the package is a new install.
These situations can be checked in the ebuild as follows:

if ! has_version 'net-misc/modemmanager'; then

See the tracker bug 440214 for more details.
