Description Jonas Stein gentoo-dev 2016-05-14 22:36:17 UTC
Not Found (404) for
in section

   meta (m) [OPTIONS] PKG
       Display metadata about PKG.

       meta reads a file called metadata.xml which must be included with all Portage tree  packages.  meta  does  not
       read  ebuilds,  so it can only return version independent metadata. Since until now there had not been an easy
       way for users to view metadata.xml, and because package maintainers are only required to fill out a very small
       portion  of  the file, there are still many packages without detailed metadata available. For more information
       about metadata.xml, see:
Comment 1 Brian Dolbec gentoo-dev 2016-05-18 14:44:46 UTC
Fixed in git commit:

And for future reference, the gentoolkit repo is open to all gentoo developers to make and commit fixes like this.  Only more major changes and releases need to be discussed with myself or Paul.
