Sabayon devs think they need to mask one of the packages for some reason. I see that that mask is deprecated as packages do in fact emerge and work fine now, so I need to put an entry in my package.unmask : <=category/thatmaskedpackage-version. Notice that I need to keep en eye on version of that package and if I simply add 'category/thatmaskedpackage' I'm already asking for trouble.
What if there in fact comes a new version of that package which break everything badly? Which gentoo devs mask but *I* unmask by that entry in my config files. emerge -pvND world won't catch these and I'll notice something only when some reverse dependency of that package won't compile or don't run.
