Description lperkins 2017-09-28 18:02:46 UTC
Given masked/keyworded package <FOO> where all of its dependencies have no mask or keyword restrictions:

Running:  emerge -av --onlydeps <FOO>

results in being prompted to autounmask <FOO>, despite the fact that <FOO> is not in the list of packages to be installed.

Yeah, we could discard these config changes for --onlydeps packages.
