9     Legend:
10 carpaski 1.4 '*' Just do it. '#' Tricky
11     '!' Difficult '@' Restricted in some way
12 carpaski 1.3
13 carpaski 1.4 # STICKIES and related enhancements:
14     bug 9379, bug 13616, Aether's config code
15 carpaski 1.3
16 carpaski 1.5 # Determine file lock status before starting downloads -- Prevent races/deletes
17     Patches exist for this. Integrate and find all colliding descriptors/cmds.
18 carpaski 1.6 Create a fileIO layer? (wget and other external calls are a problem)
19 carpaski 1.3
20     * Add category support to searches... emerge -s @catgory
21    
22     @ rsync - track changes based in subtrees to reduce filetree expense.
23     Possible plans:
24 carpaski 1.5 Use md5's of tree file list + md5 of subtree -- client-side burden.
25     Maintain hash of changes on rsync1 -- Server-side burden. **
26     Implement CVSUP. **
27    
28     # 'emerge sync' timestamp awareness -- Make sure IP is associated and not
29     used at random as servers may differ. bug 21794
30 carpaski 1.6
31     ! Rename all undocumented variables used in bash to prefixed values that
32     are not easy to accidently duplicate. BUILDDIR --> PORTAGE_BUILDDIR or
33     something like that. Prevent ebuilds from clobbering system variables.
