9     Legend:
10 carpaski 1.4 '*' Just do it. '#' Tricky
11     '!' Difficult '@' Restricted in some way
12 carpaski 1.8
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 carpaski 1.7
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 carpaski 1.3
24 carpaski 1.4 # STICKIES and related enhancements:
25     bug 9379, bug 13616, Aether's config code
26 carpaski 1.3
27 carpaski 1.5 # Determine file lock status before starting downloads -- Prevent races/deletes
28     Patches exist for this. Integrate and find all colliding descriptors/cmds.
29 carpaski 1.6 Create a fileIO layer? (wget and other external calls are a problem)
30 carpaski 1.3
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 carpaski 1.5 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 carpaski 1.6
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.
