Description Walter Dnes 2015-12-21 20:40:31 UTC
I check /var/portage/elog for warnings after doing updates. This should be reserved for important stuff. I could see an ewarn for a few months after removing a feature, but this ewarn has been in vim ebuilds for *OVER TWO YEARS*. No, I am not exaggerating. See...

dated Mon Dec 16 09:57:57 2013 UTC (2 years ago). Note lines 348+349

348 	ewarn "Note that the English word lists are no longer installed by"
349 	ewarn "default."

After a few months, these messages contribute nothing, and only clutter up /var/portage/elog and waste peoples' time reading about an ancient change. While we're at it, maybe there should be a general policy about how long these ewarns persist in all ebuilds.
