Comment 6 Michael Seifert 2016-03-25 20:28:38 UTC
I can confirm this issue. I managed to work around it by unmerging dev-python/future, emerging dev-python/packaging, and finally re-installing dev-python/future.
Comment 7 Mike Gilbert gentoo-dev 2016-08-30 04:15:43 UTC
I cannot reproduce this. Installing dev-python/future has no effect here.

We will need additional information on how to reproduce the problem.

Hint: pkg_preinst() and indeed the entire merge succeed if I first unmerge dev-python/future
Comment 12 Alice Ferrazzi Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev 2016-09-24 14:09:41 UTC
I have no dev-python/future installed and is anyway failing
Comment 13 Mike Gilbert gentoo-dev 2016-09-24 14:42:40 UTC
Figured it out; see bug 595028.
