Default what's going on with updates ?

Since few days ( two or three ?), every time I launch emerge, it's saying me
it needs an update of portage itself.
In plus, I have upgraded udev at least two times (160>161>162 today)...

Plus, I have had two warning message concerning updates : sudo and an other...

what's going on ? Is somebody founding security holes "à la pelle" (french
expression).

Do you have "ACCEPT_KEYWORDS" set to something starting with a "~..."?

If yes, then you can expect regular updates to further "unstable" versions.

I wouldn't expect people to run a Gentoo system with all packages on unstable.
I tend to only select specific packages as unstable when I really need that
version.

I wouldn't be surprised to have to upgrade a substantial set of packages on a
daily basis with that setting.

Why do you specify you want the latest versions and then get surprised when
you get new updates on a daily basis?

No, not really. Developers push fixes for problems reported in
bugs.gentoo.org and ask the users to test whether the fixes work as
expected. It's normal that this can result in very fast version updates.


And as said previously, the "-l" option of emerge will tell you why an
update was pushed into portage.

That's not to strange. I have seen this with other packages before.
Keep in mind, portage is maintained by Gentoo devs so they could release
a version, see something that isn't working quite like they want, make
some changes and push them out for upgrades. I would much rather them
do that than wait a couple days while people are using a "buggy"
package. Only thing worse is to upgrade, then downgrade, wait a few
days and have to upgrade again.


My $0.02 worth.
