1 carpaski 1.3 # TODO list for Portage; the Gentoo Linux package system
2 carpaski 1.10 # $Id: TODO,v 1.9 2003/10/13 07:43:38 carpaski Exp $
3 carpaski 1.1
4 carpaski 1.3 #
5     # Add your name to the top of any item you are working actively on
6     # and then commit. Be sure you have a current copy of this file.

8    
9     Legend:
10 carpaski 1.4 '*' Just do it. '#' Tricky
11     '!' Difficult '@' Restricted in some way
12 carpaski 1.9
13 carpaski 1.10 * Clean should only produce output for 'emerge clean'
14    
15 carpaski 1.9 # Stop using mtimes for packages. Have portage look up all files in the
16 carpaski 1.10 vardb to ensure that a file isn't duplicated and unmerge it if not.
17     Potentially slow... Need some way to speed it up... hash of filenames?
18 carpaski 1.8
19     # Virtuals. /var/cache/edb/virtuals -- Effectively remove it.
20 carpaski 1.10 /etc/portage/virtuals is a user-modifiable version that acts like an
21     incremental applied on top of an ON-DEMAND virtual calculation system.
22     Virtuals should be calculated from /var/db/pkg EVERY time it is requested.
23 carpaski 1.7
24     # Repoman needs to ignore all user-set info in /etc/portage
25 carpaski 1.10 It's not relevant to deployed users and will probably be a general gotcha.
26 carpaski 1.7
27     # Multiple rsync repos.
28     bug 28796 -- Enable metadata caches for them.
29 carpaski 1.3
30 carpaski 1.4 # STICKIES and related enhancements:
31     bug 9379, bug 13616, Aether's config code
32 carpaski 1.3
33 carpaski 1.5 # Determine file lock status before starting downloads -- Prevent races/deletes
34     Patches exist for this. Integrate and find all colliding descriptors/cmds.
35 carpaski 1.6 Create a fileIO layer? (wget and other external calls are a problem)
36 carpaski 1.3
37     * Add category support to searches... emerge -s @catgory
38    
39     @ rsync - track changes based in subtrees to reduce filetree expense.
40     Possible plans:
41 carpaski 1.5 Use md5's of tree file list + md5 of subtree -- client-side burden.
42     Maintain hash of changes on rsync1 -- Server-side burden. **
43     Implement CVSUP. **
44    
45     # 'emerge sync' timestamp awareness -- Make sure IP is associated and not
46     used at random as servers may differ. bug 21794
47 carpaski 1.6
48     ! Rename all undocumented variables used in bash to prefixed values that
49     are not easy to accidently duplicate. BUILDDIR --> PORTAGE_BUILDDIR or
50     something like that. Prevent ebuilds from clobbering system variables.
