I have created a flowchart (included as vector and png) of possible situations
when upgrading a package. I'm not aware of Portage being prepared for all
situations. To prepare Portage for all situations we need 3 USE-flags (i.e.
libupdate, libupdaterisk, libupdateoverwrite). If more information is required
please let me know. If an other format is required let me know. I really
appriciate your opinion on this.
PS. I apologise for the lack of quality, I was in a hurry.

I think your page didn't load completely. I have tried to open the attachment
from multiple computers but had no problems. Would you please retry and
confirm/decline if it works. Maybe someone else can try it also?
The PNG works for me.
it works for me too ... it was just the image viewer i used showed it as
completely black (was paint shop pro ...)
i just didnt post an additional comment since it would take up useless space ;)
Technically an enhancement, so marking it as such.
Side note, any, activity?
Shouldn't those be FEATURES, not USE flags?
Slapping this one shut. explanation of ideas here is required- something more then just a flowchart.
What's this address? Where is the failing of *current* portage in comparison, etc?
