Description Sławomir Nizio 2019-09-16 20:36:56 UTC
app-portage/distpatch-0.1.2-r1 has PYTHON_COMPAT=( python2_7 )
some other packages that depend on dev-python/snakeoil, such as sys-apps/pkgcore-0.10.3 have something like: PYTHON_COMPAT=( python3_{6,7} )

now, dev-python/snakeoil-0.7.5 has PYTHON_COMPAT=( python{2_7,3_5,3_6,3_7} )
^ works with both

but newer version: dev-python/snakeoil/snakeoil-0.8.3 supports only Python 3: PYTHON_COMPAT=( python3_{6,7} )

So it's not possible to have distpatch and (for example) pkgcore with new version of snakeoil on the same system.

Also, it's 2019 already. ;)

Reproducible: Always
