Description Patrick Lauer gentoo-dev 2014-06-06 08:06:18 UTC

# emerge -pC gentoo-sources
 * This action can remove important packages! In order to be safer, use
 * `emerge -pv --depclean <atom>` to check for reverse dependencies before
 * removing packages.

>>> These are the packages that would be unmerged:

    selected: 3.10.7-r1 3.10.17 3.10.25 3.10.32 3.12.13 3.12.20 3.12.21-r1 
   protected: none 
     omitted: none 

All selected packages: sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-3.10.32 sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-3.10.25 sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-3.12.21-r1 sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-3.10.7-r1 sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-3.10.17 sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-3.12.13 sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-3.12.20

>>> 'Selected' packages are slated for removal.
>>> 'Protected' and 'omitted' packages will not be removed.

The "All selected packages" line is not directly useful for reuse (e.g. by copy-pasting a few of the listed atoms) as the atoms are lacking a leading "="

If this were added it'd be a lot easier to handle selective depclean.

(So it'd change:
All selected packages: sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-3.10.32
All selected packages: =sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-3.10.32
