package.keywords size limit

Reported by: barvins@… Owned by: somebody
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: component1 Version:
Keywords: Cc:


When keywording packages with himerge, "package.keywords" file won't grow behind certain size limit, and package names already in "package.keywords" are damaged. It seems to happen like this: himerge sorts the packages that are already in keywords file alphabetically, the list is then chopped at the end at 8192 bytes (usually damaging the last line by removing half of it), then the newly added package is inserted in appropriate place. As a result, size of "package.keywords" is always 8192 + size_of_the_last_package_name + 2 linebreaks. himerge 0.30.30, ghc 6.8.2 (tried both binary and self-built version). If you cannot reproduce the problem and need some more information about the environment, just ask.

Thank you for reporting this problem, and I really want to get it fixed, but I still can't reproduce it. Could you please send me your package.keywords file to my gentoo email address??, So I can test it.
