Description Justin Jones 2002-09-01 13:24:21 UTC
The description is currently:
       -N, --needed
           Display needed packages that are not installed. (red)

       -R, --removed
           Display installed packages not in portage. (yellow)

                      in your world (ie, things that were installed as a 
                      dependancy of something you explicitly installed)

[02:17] < binaryrain> Nash: yellow's are things that aren't in the portage tree 
                      anymore (things that are older but you haven't upgraded
