First, great work on all the patches and improvements I've been seeing. I know there is somewhat of a feature freeze while you are catching up, but. If anyone is working on this section of code, could you keep in mind the following feature request.
emerge -pv <package> would actually continue listing (modified normal)after finding a dependency is masked rather than stop on, and report only, the first one. The masked packages would need to be marked as such [hard masked, keyword masked], possibly shown grouped in blocks [KEYWORD, HARD MASKED, STABLE]. It is most annoying trying to update a meta package that has a bunch of new dependencies that are masked. Perhaps even a: emerge --Keyword <package> feature added to ask for approval to add a keyword masked package &/or DEPENDS to the package.keyword file after listing them for acceptance. P.S. add the masked package/DEPEND list output to the API so I can incorporate into porthole :) -- Brian <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> -- email@example.com mailing list
