Comment 1 Marius Mauch (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-05-19 12:17:32 UTC
grr, does packages.g.o still not work for hardmasked packages?
Comment 2 Sven Wegener gentoo-dev 2004-05-19 12:34:27 UTC
seems so, i think we need a fourth indicator besides ~, + and -
which indicates if a version has been hard-masked.
Comment 3 Daniel Webert 2004-05-19 12:53:58 UTC
packages.g.o is one prob ... but why does my emerge favour a 'older' unstable (2.6.0-r1) version instead of a 'newer' stable (2.6.2-r3) version?
Comment 4 Daniel Webert 2004-05-19 13:05:51 UTC
first read, then write :) masked one :( - i should get some sleep ...
but can we push the 2.6.2 version a little bit, its already a r3, and everybody wants it
Comment 5 Sven Wegener gentoo-dev 2004-05-19 14:11:27 UTC
>=net-misc/rsync-2.6.2 has issues when syncing, see bug 49933
once this has been sorted out, the mask will be removed
Comment 6 Albert Hopkins (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-05-19 21:37:01 UTC
packages.g.o identifies hard masks.  Please test.

Comment 7 Sven Wegener gentoo-dev 2004-05-20 04:41:33 UTC

The text is at the bottom and took me twice to see it. The green check mark
still says that it is stable, also the bug displayed for ~arch. How about a
red cross when it is hard-masked? I don't know if portage supports per arch
package.mask yet or if they will be implemented with cascaded profiles. The
listing on the frontpage will also still show the green check mark and bug.;name=rsync

But, I would like to have it also here, replacing the ~ and + indicators
with another indicator on red background to indicate that this version is
Comment 8 Daniel Webert 2004-05-20 06:53:46 UTC
please also add the term hardmasked to the tooltip-function of the tablecell

<td class="archcell" arch="+" masked="true" title="marked stable for ppc">+</td>
Comment 9 Albert Hopkins (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-05-20 07:41:07 UTC
I'd like to keep the [-+~] symbols for packages.  Because if one wanted to remove a hard mask from a package, they may want to know if the package is even available for their platform.  I did, however, add the tooltip indicating that the package is hard masked.
Comment 10 Daniel Webert 2004-05-21 06:50:33 UTC
jep the old -+~ style is good, but why don't we add a 'M' like in the etcat-output ... the red-cellbackground is good, but i think a 'M+' disitinguish a stable, but hardmasked package very clear :)

I think it's less confusing now.  Closing.
