I think what Swee Tat means is that the file
"" should be removed from my

Background: I touch a file by that name within the destination area when I
start a mirror run for all sites that I mirror, in order that users have
some way of telling that the current state of my mirror may not entirely
be in a consistent and correct state.  The file is removed when the
scheduled mirror job is finished.

As I don't personally use gentoo, I haven't been aware whether adding this
file would cause problems to gentoo users.  Since this file causes
problems, I'll amend my mirror script so that it doesn't create this file.

If my understanding isn't correct, please do tell me what the problem is,
and what I should do to fix it.

Thanks for the feedback.
