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