Description trimodephone 2019-05-29 17:27:10 UTC
Upgrading from perl 5.26 to 5.28, running perl-cleaner --all after the upgrade:

* It seems like perl-cleaner had to rebuild some packages.
 * If you have just updated your major Perl version (e.g. from 5.20.2 to 5.22.0),
 * and have run perl-cleaner _after_ that update, then this means most likely
 * that these packages are buggy. Please file a bug on and
 * report that perl-cleaner needed to reinstall the following list:
 *   x11-terms/rxvt-unicode:0 net-irc/weechat:0 sys-apps/ack:0

All 3 of these have dev-lang/perl:= in RDEPEND so autorebuilds should have been triggered.  I suspect that emerge may have failed before they were rebuilt, and that's why perl-cleaner picked them up.  Probably nothing to fix here.
