What is your goal? Your assumption is wrong, this change is clearly visual only... Bug #510538: Include "::repository" in more messages. https://github.com/gentoo/portage/commit/ 3f110090e50207d4ae3f6031ce6b1beafc80de46 Not technical purely visual... https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=510538 > I know that some Gentoo developers find that very hard to comprehend > but in most of the cases, the people directly involved in it happen to > know the rationale. Rationale is *why X did Y*, not *why I think that X > did Y, as long as it contradicts what X says*. I know your making an insulting comment... But it is funny that you are calling out something you just did. You said why you thought a change was made not the facts. Now you see the commit, the comment, and the bug that caused the change. Still want to use your PMS argument for pure visual things on package merge? Try again, this time respectfully and politely... -- William L. Thomson Jr.
