Description Theo Chatzimichos (RETIRED) archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2013-11-16 16:47:29 UTC
Please consider renaming it to something else, eg repos.conf.d or repos.d
Comment 1 Ben Kohler gentoo-dev 2013-11-16 16:50:06 UTC
It can be a flat file or dir, just like most of the rest of /etc/portage/
Comment 2 Alexander Berntsen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-12-02 01:33:27 UTC
Ben is correct. It's the same as the package.{use,mask,unmask,keyword} scenario. However, it is (was) undocumented. Fix is in git.
Comment 4 Brian Dolbec gentoo-dev 2014-01-06 00:41:56 UTC
Released in sys-apps/portage-2.2.8.
