Default Adding app-arch/xz-utils to the system set

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

Hello.

Given the increased use of lzma compressed files, including on portage
snapshots, I'd like to add app-arch/xz-utils to the system set.
We already have a few bugs about requiring xz-utils such as
347557[1] and 305127[2].

[1] - https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=347557
[2] - https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=305127

Can anyone think of any reason "not" to do it?

On that note i sent zac proof of concept patch that made repoman whine
when ebuild was using some compression yet was not depending on the
proper pkg.

I wonder where i put that thing so i could finish it up
(yes i know most ebuilds does not do so but they should :P)

Well, the interesting bit of info is that the wider developer community
maybe already assumes it to be in the system set. *OR* can't be bothered
to remember that it is NOT in the system set. The data to back up this
statement is in https://bugs.gentoo.org/349315 in which ~20 packages are
discovered to be missing the build time dep.


So, after 30 days on the mailing list..now does anyone have a reason to
not do it? The benefits are obvious in my opinion and they all lead to a
better user experience which should be the main goal. The drawbacks are
slim, which include but are not limited to, a larger system set [by one
package].


Let's add it to improve the situation in general.

Thanks,
-Jeremy

The same argument can be used to add app-arch/unzip to the system set.
~106 packages do not DEPEND on app-arch/unzip while using a zip file.

I think the missing dependency problem should be fixed by a repoman
patch.

The two bugs in the OP weren't PM-can-not-unpack-the-sources problems.

Following Jeremy's reply earlier today[1], I've just went through and
added xz-utils to the system set.

[1] - http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.gentoo.devel/69661

I did so because Portage snapshots are already being offered as lzma
archives and releng might start building stages as lzma archives too.
