Description Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2015-09-20 18:21:32 UTC
Currently the lib that is being preserved is shown at the bottom of a normal merge... the problem is that when that merge fails, nothing is shown and, if I try to know what lib was preserved, emerge -pv @preserved-rebuild won't tell me that either:
# emerge -pv @preserved-rebuild

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

 * IMPORTANT: 1 news items need reading for repository 'gentoo'.
 * Use eselect news read to view new items.

From my point of view, at least with "-v" option, it should also post that information
