Most repos have now had their ranged deps migrated so it's a good time to
reinstall affected packages. Running `paludis -i everything` for this sucks
because it also reinstalls unaffected packages and because unhandled
exceptions make Paludis barf without allowing the operation to resume where
it left off.
A better method is to use the attached `reinstall-ranged-deps` script which
will "resume" where it left off each time it's run and it should only
reinstall packages affected by the ranged dep changes.
Before running the script, nuke the contents of your Paludis write cache:
rm -rf /var/cache/paludis/metadata/*
(or whichever directory houses your write cache)
paludis -i paludis
During the course of reinstallation you may still need to manually fix
problems unrelated to the ranged dep changes, such as the EBUILD_PHASE ->
EXHERES_PHASE change for Python packages mentioned in an earlier thread on
