Description

14:24 < dleverton> ciaranm: is it intentional that --hide doesn't affect finding the available resolvents?
16:45 < ciaranm> dleverton: good question. is there a benefit to making it so?
16:54 < dleverton> ciaranm: it's possibly useful as a quick alternative to temporarily masking things, but not if it still tries to pull in the slots 
                   you've hidden
16:55 < ciaranm> dleverton: so we're just talking about hiding the particular id for resolvent detection, and not something cleverer to hide any 
                 resolvent that can contain that id, right?
16:56 < dleverton> Yeah
16:56 < ciaranm> feel free
16:56 < ciaranm> also. hiding an installed thing might be interesting then...
16:56 < dleverton> I wouldn't expect --hide =paludis-scm to hide all of paludis:0, for example
16:56 < ciaranm> right
16:57 < dleverton> But --hide kde-base/*:4.6 when I don't feel like doing the whole upgrade right now would be nice
16:57  * ciaranm nods
16:57 < ciaranm> yeah, i think hide would be more useful done that way
