Description Raymond Jennings 2016-09-20 02:17:50 UTC
flaggie appears to be choking on wildcards that I have in my configuration files.

See attached diff I made with a git repo inside /etc/portage.

Anything wildcarded in licenses and keywords were messed up.

Yep, I know. It needs someone to update the code, I'm unable to find time for it.

This has been fixed in upstream's master, at least for accept_keywords.

Licenses wildcards are still messing up.
