Description Anthony Basile gentoo-dev 2014-06-28 19:28:16 UTC
As of commit 9089c2d7 in the portage repo on, portage can now make use of the C wrapper to /usr/bin/install to copy extended attributes instead of the python wrapper.  Since the C wrapper is much faster, this is preferred.

Moving forward, portage should pull in sys-apps/install-xattr if USE=xattr is set.

Reproducible: Always

portage-2.2.12 and later ebuilds pull in >=sys-apps/install-xattr-0.3.
