Description Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2021-06-11 08:53:45 UTC
I was reviewing the logs and I found:
>>> Messages generated by process 179134 on 2021-06-10 13:40:52 CEST for package sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-5.12.9:

LOG: setup
>>> Preparing to unpack ...
LOG: install
>>> Copying sources ...
LOG: postinst
If you are upgrading from a previous kernel, you may be interested
in the following document:
  - General upgrade guide:

I think "Preparing to unpack" and "Copying sources" are not so important to be logged there. Probably einfo could be used for them
