Description Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2017-07-07 10:56:08 UTC
I was hitting (again) bug 606730 when trying to update another computer. I was planning to simply run "emerge -C" on offending texlive packages but, when running the full emerge -avuDN world... the offending packages listed in red in the packages lists are too far from the end of the output. The screen is bloated with the longer (and useless for administrator) explanatory messages about "...texlive-basic-2016... pulled in by
[lots of lines with all the other texlive packages pulling it"

Hence, I need to constantly go up an down copying and pasting the offending packages to unmerge them. Wouldn't it be better to shown that packages whose need manual intervention (to remove them) at the end of the output instead of the other information that is ok but not useful to *resolve* the blockers (from an administrator point of view) ?

Thanks a lot
