Description Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2015-03-04 18:37:27 UTC
For example, if the ebuild has RESTRICT="foo? ( bindist )", the masking message just says "masked by: bindist in RESTRICT" which isn't very helpful if the restriction is USE-conditional.
Comment 1 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2015-03-07 19:57:10 UTC
When --autounmask is enabled, we can suggest package.use configuration changes.
Comment 2 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2015-03-07 19:59:57 UTC
Also, for unconditional RESTRICT="bindist", --autounmask can suggest package.accept_restrict configuration changes.
