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