parentRestructure system affection detection. (diff)
Do not inject GLSAs into the checkfile when fixing them
There is no reason applied GLSAs must be stored in a checkfile. In the current glsa-check GUI this will make it impossible to determine whether the system is still affected by the GLSA (e.g. by re-emerging, or when a GLSA is changed afterwards). The current place for the checkfile (/var/cache) is not persistent per FHS, meaning that people might clean out the contents of their injected GLSAs. Since glsa.py is moving to portage anyway, we can use /var/lib/portage as a place to store the injected GLSAs. Documentation has been updated accordingly. Note that the old checkfile should not be moved to the previous location on upgrade since this will cause false negatives due to the above arguments. A message should appear on upgrade (pkg_postinst or similar). svn path=/trunk/gentoolkit/; revision=649
