Description Bernardo Meurer 2019-07-29 20:33:46 UTC
In trying to use ebuildtester I come, invariably, across the following error
$ sudo ebuildtester --portage-dir /var/db/repos/gentoo --overlay-dir /var/db/repos/bemeurer --use otf ttf --atom '=media-fonts/fontawesome-5.9.0'

I suspect this is caused by the 17.0 profile having been yanked in favour of 17.1, but I am not certain.
Comment 1 Bernardo Meurer 2019-07-29 20:37:06 UTC
Actually scratch that. Manually editing the profile name in the sources to 17.1 does not solve the issue.
Comment 2 Bernardo Meurer 2019-07-29 20:39:55 UTC
The file definitely exists:

It mounts repo into /usr/portage inside container.
Comment 4 Bernardo Meurer 2019-07-30 17:51:49 UTC
Ah, thanks Alexander! The package looks unmaintained, I will try to submit a PR to fix it. 

I assume the correct behaviour is to check PORTDIR.
