Subject: speeding up emerge sync...and being nice to the mirrors
Date: Thu, 15 May 2003 14:50:13 +0100
hi,

call me crazy, but wouldn't this be more efficient:

mounting /usr/portage on a loopback filesystem...
with /usr/portage/distfiles obviously mounted out
of the loopback file, or a symlink to somewhere else :)

emerge sync does an unmount of this filesystem, rsyncs
it with the server's copy of the file, and then remounts
it.

only one file to diff, which in my mind should be more
efficient. no more waiting for the 40000 file list to
arrive.

or is there a reason this is a stupid idea? :)
