This has as another consequence that we cannot extract the state of
keywords from profiles.desc any more. So we need to find a different
solution for bug 304133.

Any ideas?

one of these maybe:

1) check if there's something starting with ~ in ACCEPT_KEYWORDS from
make.default (probably slow);
2) generate that list from profile's make.default when building
gentoolkit-dev
3) what are the usecases of ekeyword all ? noarch no deps packages ? in
that case i dont really mind amd64-fbsd being included
4) make ekeyword all use the union of stable keywords of current
package (probably saner as that wont bring in new stable keywords by
mistake)
5) create a new profile state meaning 'no stable keyword but broken
deps are errors'

Hi!

May be you can share stages and install instructions for this?

Hi,

I've just marked the profile 'default/bsd/fbsd/amd64/9.0' as 'stable'
in profiles.desc. I've been careful not to keyword anything with
broken

deps, and its now forbidden. It is the first g/fbsd profile marked as
such.

Consequences for devs: broken deps are not allowed anymore; people
are,

like for standard arches, expected to drop keywords and fill a
rekeywording bug.

Rationale:
- x86-fbsd has been a 'dev' profile for so long that the
majority of the packages have broken deps, meaning moving it to a
'stable' profile is almost impossible. I do not want to repeat this
error for amd64-fbsd
- people usually do not run repoman -d, and as such, it is common to
get (core or not) packages that are uninstallable on g/fbsd. This
wont happen anymore and will make devs and users happier :=)

cons: there's no stable amd64-fbsd keyword, i suppose that if we want
some day to stabilize it, it'll be hard with a 'stable' profile, but
we

can temporarily switch it back to 'dev' while doing it, and without
preventing broken deps it'll be almost impossible to do this anyway.

Regards,

A.
