  UnderscoreInUseFlag: USE flag 'SECURITY_HAZARD' uses reserved underscore character
Comment 1 Stephan Hartmann gentoo-dev 2019-09-20 07:46:26 UTC
(Sorry for using a random bug to ask this)

Where is it written that underscore is reserved in USE flags (same goes for other "new" policies)? Changing USE flag names requires user actions and IMHO shouldn't be done like that.
I already had troubles with that lm_sensors -> lm-sensors change on our binary package builder.
