    • This would aid system administrators to understand the security impact of installing new software, libraries or the respectively impact of maintaining specific version of a library/software to satisfy a compatibility or stability need.

      The user story might go along these lines.

      The user runs `ego sync`, in the tail of the report is a set of notifications which indicate any serious vulnerabilities in the current system.

      Subsequently and similarly, `emerge -pv` would list CVEs and their respective criticalities.

      `eix` too would then be able pick up this feature but I believe that is out of scope of a portage feature request.
