6 # and then commit. Be sure you have a current copy of this file.

9 Legend:
10 '*' Just do it. '#' Tricky
11 '!' Difficult '@' Restricted in some way
12
13 # Repoman needs to ignore all user-set info in /etc/portage
14 # It's not relevant to deployed users and will probably be a general gotcha.
15
16 # Multiple rsync repos.
17 bug 28796 -- Enable metadata caches for them.
18
19 # STICKIES and related enhancements:
20 bug 9379, bug 13616, Aether's config code
21
22 # Determine file lock status before starting downloads -- Prevent races/deletes
23 Patches exist for this. Integrate and find all colliding descriptors/cmds.
24 Create a fileIO layer? (wget and other external calls are a problem)
25
26 * Add category support to searches... emerge -s @catgory
27
28 @ rsync - track changes based in subtrees to reduce filetree expense.
29 Possible plans:
30 Use md5's of tree file list + md5 of subtree -- client-side burden.
31 Maintain hash of changes on rsync1 -- Server-side burden. **
32 Implement CVSUP. **
33
34 # 'emerge sync' timestamp awareness -- Make sure IP is associated and not
35 used at random as servers may differ. bug 21794
36
37 ! Rename all undocumented variables used in bash to prefixed values that
38 are not easy to accidently duplicate. BUILDDIR --> PORTAGE_BUILDDIR or
39 something like that. Prevent ebuilds from clobbering system variables.
