I've been using TMDA on Gentoo/Sparc for the past 8 months without a single issue. I suggest we unmask it for ~sparc.
Actually it already is. Is this not showing up in your tree?
I re-synced portage and I get the same result. rsync does seem to be updating properly because I'm getting updates on other packages.
# emerge -s tmda

emerge -pv tmda will give you a more helpful explanation of why it's masked
# uname -a

# emerge -pv tmda
These are the packages that I would merge, in order:
!!! all ebuilds that could satisfy "tmda" have been masked.
!!! possible candidates are:
- net-mail/tmda-0.92 (masked by: ~keyword)
- net-mail/tmda-1.0 (masked by: ~keyword)
!!! Error calculating dependencies. Please correct.
It's still masked on my machine, but it's not a big deal. Let's move on to more important issues!
