Description poletti.marco 2012-10-31 10:59:05 UTC
Disclaimer: this bug has been filed in a semi-automated manner.

When emerging the package app-admin/sudo-1.8.5_p2, the following elog messages are displayed:

 * sudo uses the /etc/ldap.conf.sudo file for ldap configuration.
 * To use the -A (askpass) option, you need to install a compatible
 * password program from the following list. Starred packages will
 * automatically register for the use with sudo (but will not force
 * the -A option):
 *  [*] net-misc/ssh-askpass-fullscreen
 *      net-misc/x11-ssh-askpass
 * You can override the choice by setting the SUDO_ASKPASS environmnent
 * variable to the program you want to use.

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 'app-admin/sudo'; then
