Description Patrick Lauer gentoo-dev 2015-08-09 04:32:01 UTC
pkg_postinst() {
        einfo "Fetching Gentoo Developer seed file..."
        gkeys fetch-seed -C gentoo-devs || die "Unable to fetch seeds"

Bad puppy. No random network fetching!

(Makes it uninstallable in situations where for example no external network access is given and distfiles are available over NFS ...)
Comment 1 Kristian Fiskerstrand gentoo-dev Security 2015-08-09 14:34:35 UTC
gentoo-developer seed files really aren't necessary for normal users, so this should, at least, be a use flag anyways.
Comment 2 Patrick Lauer gentoo-dev 2015-08-12 14:34:34 UTC
Or use pkg_config, or print an einfo - the point is, fetching random crap will fail, and cause angry bug reports, so please have all fetchable items in SRC_URI
