Description Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2020-07-22 09:56:50 UTC
I was wondering about why I wasn't getting the QA warnings about not updating icon/mime cache when needed and I found:
        # parallel-install makes it impossible to blame a specific package
        has parallel-install ${FEATURES} && return

Maybe it should show an "einfo" statement to show that it's being skipped instead of doing it silently

Thanks a lot

Can we skip the einfo message if the check didn't find anything, or should we show it unconditionally? I'm thinking that we'll need to document these checks in a man page and note the parallel-install caveat there.

I would show it fewer times to not pollute too much logs (but still allow user to know that the test is not working properly).

I guess this case won't be fixable with bug 725112 , right? :/

These QA checks are just not compatible with parallel-install, since they rely on state of the live filesystem.
