Description Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2018-10-20 21:17:22 UTC
Our automated repository checks [1] have detected that the 'bumblebee'
repository contains ebuilds that trigger fatal errors during the cache
regeneration. This usually means that the ebuilds call 'die' in global
scope indicating serious issues or have other serious QA violations.

Global-scope failures prevent the ebuild not only from being installed
but also from being properly processed by the Package Manager. Since
metadata can not be obtained for those ebuilds, no cache entries are
created for them and the Package Manager needs to retry running them
every time it stumbles upon them. This involves both a serious slowdown
and repeating error output while performing dependency resolution.

The most common cause of global-scope failures is use of removed or
banned APIs in old ebuilds. In particular, this includes eclasses being
removed or removing support for old EAPIs. Nonetheless there are also
other issues such as performing illegal operations in global scope
(external program calls), malformed bash in ebuilds or malformed

The error log for the repository can be found at:

In particular, please look for highlighted '!!! ERROR' and '!!! caught
exception' lines. The former usually mean failures coming from eclasses
and the ebuild itself, while exceptions usually mean malformed ebuilds
or metadata.xml.

Please note that due to technical limitations of pkgcore, the processing
stops on the first error found. Once solved, please wait ~30 minutes for
the report to refresh in case new errors may appear.

Please fix the issue ASAP, possibly via removing unmaintained, old
ebuilds. We reserve the right to remove the repository from our list if
we do not receive any reply within 4 weeks.

Well, actually, I'm completely disagree with your decision to make cmake-multilib only compatible with EAPI6 (neither 5, nor 7), but okay, "issue" should be fixed now.

The bug seems to be fixed in the repository. Closing.
