[gentoo-dev] IUSE=minimal seems like a bad idea

matts...@sempron /usr/portage $ egrep -l 'IUSE=.*minimal' `find -name '*.ebuild'` ^ shows lots of ebuilds with IUSE=minimal. Instead of having a minimal use flag for these packages, shouldn't we have, possibly local, use flags for whatever feature(s) the minimal flag turns off? Thanks, Matt

2010-11-11 Thread Matt Turner
