Description Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2020-09-06 03:24:14 UTC
The packages listed in summary still use systemd_tmpfiles API.  Please switch to tmpfiles.eclass that is maintained and supports OpenRC correctly.

sys-apps/portage ebuilds were changed in the past to eliminate dependency on virtual/tmpfiles:

    sys-apps/portage: use systemd eclass for tmpfiles support

But maybe avoiding sys-apps/opentmpfiles for non-systemd users is not really necessary...

    sys-apps/portage: Migrate to tmpfiles eclass
    The systemd_dotmpfilesd function is deprecated. Note that this
    effectively forces upgrade to >=sys-apps/openrc-0.23 for OpenRC users,
    since opentmpfiles blocks older versions of OpenRC (bug 643386).
    This should be acceptable, since the older OpenRC versions are nearly
    4 years old now.
