Description Samuli Suominen gentoo-dev 2013-08-08 11:07:27 UTC
The message used to warn about preserve_old_lib* is not really matching the todays reality now that FEATURES="preserved-libs" is enabled by default.

upstream.workaround 4
sys-fs/udev/udev-206-r1.ebuild: Upstream ABI change workaround on line: 410
sys-fs/udev/udev-206-r1.ebuild: Upstream ABI change workaround on line: 503
sys-fs/udev/udev-9999.ebuild: Upstream ABI change workaround on line: 410
sys-fs/udev/udev-9999.ebuild: Upstream ABI change workaround on line: 503

After seeing those, it's not immediately clear what should be done and accordingly, developers are ignoring it.

Please replace the message with something like:

"preserve_old_lib should be removed in favour of preserved-libs on line: XXX"

And I'm not sure if it should be categorized as 'upstream.workaround' anymore either?

Improve preserve_old_lib repoman check

This should do it -- and match the other existing checks in style
Comment 3 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2013-08-08 18:53:24 UTC
This is fixed in 2.1.13.7 and 2.2.0_alpha196.
