I keep forgetting where my newly emerged packages are installed and running "locate -u" takes forever. I wish emerge whould update the locate database with just the relveant information.
I understand it's not your number one priority. I just thought I should add it to the bottom of the list in case you ever run out of things to do.
Here's a spontanous reaction to my idea on #gentoo:
<moreon> Tilos: thats a genious idea, and if emerge was coded in C++, I would want to do it :P
See, "genious" he said. I have no idea of who he is but he liked it too. :P
Steps to Reproduce:
YOu can't just updated the relevant info into locate. It's front encodd and would take too much effort. qpkg and etcat can tell you about packages.
