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.

9 Legend:
10 '*' Just do it. '#' Tricky
11 '!' Difficult '@' Restricted in some way
12
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
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
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
28 # STICKIES and related enhancements:
29 bug 9379, bug 13616, Aether's config code
30
31 # Determine file lock status before starting downloads -- Prevent races/deletes
32 Patches exist for this. Integrate and find all colliding descriptors/cmds.
33 Create a fileIO layer? (wget and other external calls are a problem)
34
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 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
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.
