Description William L. Thomson Jr. 2018-02-20 00:52:49 UTC
I was testing a recent modification to Ansible's portage module. One thing being tested was --jobs and --load-average without arguments. I thought there was a bug because I was not seeing --load-average being logged in emerge.log

emerge --getbinpkg --usepkg --jobs --update nano curl

1519087149:  *** emerge --getbinpkg --usepkg --jobs --update nano curl

But when I do the following, --load-average is not logged
emerge --getbinpkg --update --usepkg --jobs --load-average nano curl

Jobs will show up with or without arguments. --load-average will only show up a value is specified. It seems like it should show up regardless. Since it is a valid option alone.

It maybe based on usage in order to be logged. I am not clear there on that aspect. There maybe a logical reason it is not logged intentionally. I was just assuming, it was logging the exact command being run. Which if that is the idea, then its a bug that needs to be addressed.

I also tried, kept the one with value stripped out the other
emerge --getbinpkg --update --usepkg --jobs --load-average --load-average=1.0 nano curl
