I mean documentation of some use flags (eg. multislot) is in use.local.desc, with a category of sys-apps or sys-libs.
So when installing cross-stuff, they aren't found, which is perfectly normal.

I think documenting per-package use-flags in metadata.xml is a better idea than using use.local.desc : that's closer to the ebuild, and not in the ebuild...
Although, not discussing it first, is something baaad, as usual.


Never worry about theory as long as the machinery does what it's supposed to do.
