A small change that allows mv options such as -b to be used when selecting a -5 auto-merge.

Removes -i rather than all mv_opts

This patch is against /usr/sbin/etc-update from portage-2.0.50-r3. It makes the
following change:

- export mv_opts=""
+ export mv_opts=${mv_opts//-i/};
Comment 2 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2004-04-11 19:30:06 UTC
better patch:
export mv_opts=" ${mv_opts} "
mv_opts="${mv_opts// -i }"
Comment 3 Doug Weimer 2004-04-12 06:02:29 UTC
It's probably due to a misunderstanding of the changes, but I can't see the improvement. The new version seems to produce the following for various mv_opts settings:

1. "-i"                              -> ""
2. "-b -i" or "-i -b"                -> extra leading or trailing whitespace
3. "--backup=existing -i --suffix=^" -> mv failure
Comment 4 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2004-04-12 11:52:46 UTC
correct patch:
export mv_opts=" ${mv_opts} "
mv_opts="${mv_opts// -i / }"

Putting a hold on feature requests for portage as they are drowning out the 
bugs. Most of these features should be available in the next major version of 
portage. But for the time being, they are just drowning out the major bugs and 
delaying the next version's progress. 
Any bugs that contain patches and any bugs for etc-update or dispatch-conf can 
be reopened. Sorry, I'm just not good enough with bugzilla. ;)
