Description Progenyx 2021-11-06 12:15:52 UTC
Upon resuming merge the dependency tree still contains a package which was supposed to be rebuild only after the update of another. 

I started an update last night with the following excerpt:

[ebuild  r  U  ] dev-libs/libgit2-1.3.0 [1.1.1]
[ebuild  rR   ~] dev-util/cargo-ebuild-0.4.0

The following packages are causing rebuilds:

  (dev-libs/libgit2-1.3.0:0/1.3::local, ebuild scheduled for merge) causes rebuilds for:
    (dev-util/cargo-ebuild-0.4.0:0/0::local, ebuild scheduled for merge)

What I noticed the next morning was that libgit2 had failed yet carbo-ebuild was still rebuilt.

I realize this is a very small, barely noticeable inconvenience but this could happen with packages that bring in many large programs, e.g. poppler or re2 come to mind.

Reproducible: Always
