Subject: distfile diff's
Date: Sun, 13 Apr 2003 04:26:30 -0500
I've recently been thinking about how the heck we could implement a distfile 
diff setup- I posted some of my thoughts on the forums (with no results so 
far) at .

I'm still wondering how does a src (say afbackup) get transferred to the 
gentoo distfile mirrors?  Is this an automated process, or a transfer done by 

The way I see it, either we could end up w/ some semi-automated solution 
that's handled by the servers (bad in my books), or the developer of the 
specific ebuild would have to create the diffs.

If it's the developer who creates the diff, I need to know when/how a distfile 
gets moved to the mirrors...
