Why does Portage want to downgrade from 2.2_rc15 to 2.1.6_rc1 on my last emerge --sync? I'm using ~x86.

Ya, mine too. I needed to do this
Code:
cat /etc/portage/package.unmask
sys-apps/portage


Then all is well in the world.

Because it's masked via package.mask, and not just keyworded.

Code:
barcelona:~ # grep -B 2 portage-2.2 /usr/portage/profiles/package.mask
# Zac Medico <zmedico@gentoo.org> (24 Nov 2008)
# In order to ensure that portage-2.1.6 gets sufficient testing,
# portage-2.2 will be masked in package.mask until portage-2.1.6 has
# been marked stable. If you would like to continue using portage-2.2
# then you should unmask it (instead of downgrading to portage-2.1.6).

I noticed this too this morning.

First port of call was...

Code:

$ head -n50 /usr/portage/sys-apps/portage/ChangeLog
# ChangeLog for sys-apps/portage
# Copyright 1999-2008 Gentoo Foundation; Distributed under the GPL v2
# $Header: /var/cvsroot/gentoo-x86/sys-apps/portage/ChangeLog,v 1.553 2008/11/24 07:25:24 zmedico Exp $

*portage-2.1.6_rc1 (23 Nov 2008)

  23 Nov 2008; Zac Medico <zmedico@gentoo.org> +portage-2.1.6_rc1.ebuild:
  2.1.6_rc1 release. The portage-2.1.6 branch is very close to portage-2.2
  except that the unstable features, package sets and preserve-libs, have
  been removed. In order to ensure that portage-2.1.6 gets sufficient
  testing, portage-2.2 will be masked in package.mask until portage-2.1.6
  has been marked stable. If you would like to continue using portage-2.2
  then you should unmask it (instead of downgrading to portage-2.1.6).

*portage-2.2_rc16 (23 Nov 2008)

  23 Nov 2008; Zac Medico <zmedico@gentoo.org> +portage-2.2_rc16.ebuild:
  2.2_rc16 bump. This fixes regression from bug #245358 which can cause
  an infinite loop and memory leak when an unsatisfied dependency is
  displayed (triggered by circular dependencies).

  21 Nov 2008; Zac Medico <zmedico@gentoo.org> ChangeLog,
  -portage-2.2_rc12.ebuild, -portage-2.2_rc13.ebuild:
  Remove old versions and prune old ChangeLog entries.

*portage-2.2_rc15 (21 Nov 2008)

  21 Nov 2008; Zac Medico <zmedico@gentoo.org> +portage-2.2_rc15.ebuild:
  2.2_rc15 bump. This fixes bugs #173284 (make etc-update ignore hidden
  dirs), #216190 (don\'t install file names containing newlines), #236207
  (fix hardcoded colors), #236683 (handle permission denied for ebuild
  command), #236714 (handle PortagePackageException for ebuild command),
  #243022 (handle broken symlinks when merging directories), #244485
  (document EAPI 2 in ebuild man page), #245716 (ignore \'command not
  found\' from configure scripts), #245779 (document new PKGDIR layout),
  #246451 (fix @security IndexError), #246667 (allow repoman vcs option
  customization), #246821 (fix TypeError when PORTAGE_BINHOST is unset),
  #246853 (send output to stderr consistently for installed masked
  packages), #247370 (don\'t lock build dir in --fetchonly mode), #247625
  (fix PORTAGE_IONICE_COMMAND docs), #247776 (warn if CONFIG_PROTECT is
  empty), #248053 (fix inappropriate interaction of blockers with || deps),
  #248059 (handle invalid deps with --depclean). Bug #210077 tracks all
  bugs fixed since 2.1.5.x.

*portage-2.2_rc14 (11 Nov 2008)

  11 Nov 2008; Zac Medico <zmedico@gentoo.org> +portage-2.2_rc14.ebuild:
  2.2_rc14 bump. This fixes bugs #243030 (@preserve-rebuild unnecessary
  packages), #245231 (getdelta.sh deadlock), #245356 (filter POSIXLY_CORRECT
  from env), #245358 (show ancestors for unsatisfied deps), #245362




which provided the solution :wink:
