Description Matt Turner gentoo-dev 2018-11-20 21:08:05 UTC
With FEATURES="buildpkg binpkg-multi-instance ...". app-eselect/eselect-mesa was tree cleaned, and 'eclean packages' removed all binpkgs, but it left an empty directory in place:

server /var/portage/packages/broadwell # ls app-eselect/eselect-mesa/
server /var/portage/packages/broadwell # 

eclean packages should remove empty directories resulting from all binpkgs being removed.
