cave@1306157943: [WARNING e.package_dep_spec.use_not_allowed] In thread ID '5191':

... In program cave --log-level warning execute-resolution --set --continue-on-failure if-satisfied --world-specs world world: ... When executing chosen resolution: ...

USE dependencies not safe for use here

And it will probably pop up every time it will parse news, which is quite annoying.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to upstream

The warning is correct. Use dependencies aren't allowed there. You should file a bug upstream a) asking them to remove the use dep, and b) asking them to come up with a proper solution to EAPIs and news files.
