Description Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2018-12-31 23:32:29 UTC
If the portage user's home directory does not exist, it can trigger unit test failures like in bug 674088. The portage.data._get_global already warns if the user is missing, so it could be extended to warn if the home directory does not exist.
