No, I didn't see it, but it looks like some package moved to another
category or got renamed so portage patched package.use for you. Try
dispatch-config, preferably with vimdiff and perhaps RCS support, it
makes maintaining your config so much easier than etc-update. I can't
remember any case where it wasn't just fine to just accept the changes
though.

cheers,
Matthias

This is somewhat on topic I guess. Is there a really good place to find
out what changes are being made to portage? I subscribe to the dev
mailing list too but some things get added and I have no clue it is
there until I run into it like a wall. I sometimes wish there was a
mailing list, maybe gentoo-portage-feature, that tells us what has been
added, what they do and even examples of their usages. I know having
something like this has been discussed but something would be really nice.


Just curious.

Dale

That's exactly what happened.

I used dispatch-config for years, but have now switched to conf-update
after Alan recommended it.

I also used dispatch-config when it first came out, but I think it was still
in beta at the time. A couple of times it messed up my files when I tried to
manually merge them. Eventually, I decided to go back to etc-update which
would manually merge files without problem. I tried it again now and unlike
etc-update it nicely shows the differences:

I still use etc-update too. I keep backups of my /etc just in case. I
need to check into conf-update tho. May be interesting.

Hi,

why still using RCS for version control when there's git? :-)

What is the advantage of conf-update over cfg-update which I have been
using for quite a while?

I like it, try it you might like it. If you don't, you haven't lost
anything

Honestly, it's been so long since I tried cfg-update, I can't remember
why I disliked it.
