I have a problem understanding how this works, I am sure I am doing it correct but seeing as it doesn't work I have to rethink.
Code:

root@anderslejon profiles # etcat -v mod_php
*  root@anderslejon profiles # etcat -v mod_php
        [M I] 5.0.3-r1 (2)


I know this package is allready installed but I cleared all my package.* files so it got masked again. Anyways when a package has 'M' it's hard masked so the sollution would be to.
Code:

root@anderslejon profiles # echo =dev-php/mod_php-5.0.3-r1 >> /etc/portage/package.unmask


Though that didn't work, the package still has an 'M' flag when doing etcat, suggestions?

How strange, doing 'below' unmasks it?
Code:

root@anderslejon profiles # echo =dev-php/mod_php-5.0.3-r1 ~x86 >> /etc/portage/package.keywords; etcat -v mod_php
*  dev-php/mod_php :
     [  I] 5.0.3-r1 (2)



EDIT:
Checking the other flags when doing etcat (before unmasking 5.0.3-r1 with a keyword outputs
Code:

        [M~ ] 4.3.10-r1 (0)
        [M  ] 5.0.0 (50)
        [M~ ] 5.0.0-r1 (0)
        [M~ ] 5.0.1 (0)
        [M~ ] 5.0.2 (0)
        [M~ ] 5.0.2-r1 (0)
        [M~ ] 5.0.3 (0)
        [M  I] 5.0.3-r1 (2)
        [M~ ] 5.0.3-r2 (1)

So perhaps its a bug in etcat not displaying the masked keyword flag '~' when a package is allready installed [I]
What does the numbers mean? (0), (2) etc
