Description Ciprian Ciubotariu 2019-07-20 17:47:21 UTC
I have a shared git repo containing profile/make.defaults across multiple hosts, with local customizations in make.conf. After the upgrade today ruby packages no longer obey the RUBY_TARGETS setting in profile/make.defaults, and as a workaround I placed this in make.conf. I would still want this fixed to avoid inconsistency (for instance, PYTHON_TARGETS is working just fine)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
pink /etc/portage # grep RUBY_TARGETS make.conf profile/make.defaults 
pink /etc/portage # emerge -qav vagrant

emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy "<dev-ruby/mime-types-3:*[ruby_targets_ruby25]".
(dependency required by "app-emulation/vagrant-2.2.5::gentoo[-test,ruby_targets_ruby25]" [ebuild])
(dependency required by "vagrant" [argument])
pink /etc/portage # echo 'RUBY_TARGETS="ruby24"' >> make.conf
pink /etc/portage # emerge -qav vagrant
[ebuild  N    ] virtual/ruby-ssl-10  RUBY_TARGETS="ruby24 (-ruby25)"

    profiles/arch: turn off ruby25 in RUBY_TARGETS
    This is needed to overrule the ruby25 target in the base make.defaults.
    Otherwise this ruby target will be set for all stable profiles without
    ruby itself being stable.
