Description Tomáš Mózes 2018-10-23 09:50:18 UTC
0:07.12 ERROR: Rust compiler 1.27.1 is too old.
0:07.12 To compile Rust language sources please install at least
0:07.12 version 1.28.0 of the 'rustc' toolchain and make sure it is
0:07.12 first in your path.

I'll adjust but please notice that oldest version in repository is virtual/rust-1.29.1 which would be enough and according to Gentoo policy, in this case we don't need to "enforce" a newer version.
Comment 2 Tomáš Mózes 2018-10-23 11:17:48 UTC
I see, but for a regular user it's better if emerge firefox simply works ;)
