[Solved] Trying to understand a mask

Hi everyone!

I just stumbled upon a mask, which I do not understand and hope someone can explain this to me.
I have www-apps/mediawiki-1.20.1 installed, which seems to somehow nail my dev-lang/php to 5.3.15 . dev-lang/php-5.3.19 is available, but I get the following when I try to update it:

tango011 / # emerge -uvaND dev-lang/php


These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild   R    ] dev-lang/php-5.3.15:5.3  USE="apache2 bcmath berkdb bzip2 calendar cli crypt ctype curl exif fileinfo filter ftp gd gdbm hash iconv imap inifile intl ipv6 json mhash mysql mysqli nls pdo phar posix postgres* readline session simplexml snmp soap sockets spell sqlite sqlite3 ssl suhosin tidy tokenizer truetype unicode wddx xml xmlreader xmlrpc xmlwriter xsl zip zlib -cdb -cgi -cjk -curlwrappers -debug -doc -embed -enchant -firebird -flatfile -fpm (-frontbase) -gmp -iodbc -kerberos (-kolab) -ldap -ldap-sasl -libedit -mssql -mysqlnd -oci8-instant-client -odbc -pcntl -pic -qdbm -recode -sharedmem (-sybase-ct) -sysvipc -threads -xpm" 0 kB

Total: 1 package (1 reinstall), Size of downloads: 0 kB

WARNING: One or more updates have been skipped due to a dependency conflict:


  (dev-lang/php-5.3.19::gentoo, ebuild scheduled for merge) conflicts with
    >=dev-lang/php-5.3.2[sqlite3,pdo] required by (www-apps/mediawiki-1.20.1::gentoo, installed)

When I take a look into the mediawiki-ebuild, I find this:

    imagemagick? ( || ( media-gfx/imagemagick media-gfx/graphicsmagick[imagemagick] ) )
    !imagemagick? ( dev-lang/php[gd] )
    sqlite? (

Which, as far as I understand, for the PHP version only tells that dev-lang/php greater or equal to 5.3.2 is needed by it. I do not get why this makes PHP stick to 5.3.15 . When mediawiki is removed, portage updates dev-lang/php to 5.3.19 . When mediawiki-1.20.1  is remerged afterwards, it forces dev-lang/php back to 5.3.15 . Has anybody a clue why this is happening?

Re: [Solved] Trying to understand a mask yes, dependency looks screwed
