I am in doubt about this change:

user $emerge -C lemmini && eclean-dist -d
 * This action can remove important packages! In order to be safer, use
 * `emerge -pv --depclean <atom>` to check for reverse dependencies before
 * removing packages.

   protected: none 
     omitted: none 

All selected packages: =games-puzzle/lemmini-0.86

 [    1.2 M ] lemmini-0.86.tar.xz
 ===========
 [    1.2 M ] Total space from 1 files were freed in the distfiles directory

lemmini-0.86.tar.xz was from a package in java overly.

I admit that I made an assumption about eclean only working for the main Gentoo repo. Since you have tested it and proved what I have said to be incorrect I'll undo my last change noting Gentoo repos. Thanks for your efforts! --Maffblaster (talk) 09:30, 25 November 2016 (UTC)
