You also added yourself to other packages, for example elasticsearch-cutor (bd21ed1ef20cb2d27a87a4dadf780565236a72cd) without asking the maintainer (me at that time).

As soon as we discussed this via irc that it only happens in chroot, it got back. Now a few days ago @mrueg accidentally removed the restriction but after mailing him he reverted his change so it's as you made it. > > Bonus mention: > bbdc5412061adf598ed935697441a7d6b05f7614 > app-admin/logstash-bin: drop old > > Signed-off-by: Andrew Savchenko <birc...@gentoo.org> > > That removed the versions I was using, so I better maintain the versions I > use in an overlay. Well ok then. > > Logstash is yet another package where you made yourself a maintainer without asking the maintainer (again, it was me). I don't remember you ever wanting to keep the old version of logstash in the repo. Plus, you don't need to update and you can mask the update. If you really want to use and old version (we already had multiple version of 5.x in the tree by that time), you can keep in your overlay.
