Description Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2018-03-25 10:54:09 UTC
STRIP_MASK is a Portage extension and is not supported by any other package manager. This means that your package is silently BROKEN (mis-stripped) for some of our users.

Please remove its use. If you can't strip everything, please RESTRICT=strip.
