Greetings,

When syncing from the master portage server
(rsync://rsync1.us.gentoo.org/gentoo-portage), sometimes the
metadata/timestamp.chk gets deleted. Here's an excerpt from our rsync logs:

> gentoo-portage.log-20100113.gz:2010/01/12 04:03:10 [23321] gentoo-portage del. metadata/timestamp.chk 0 > gentoo-portage.log-20100114.gz:2010/01/14 01:33:10 [2988] gentoo-portage del. metadata/timestamp.chk 0 > gentoo-portage.log-20100115.gz:2010/01/14 10:03:09 [23615] gentoo-portage del. metadata/timestamp.chk 0 > gentoo-portage.log-20100118.gz:2010/01/17 14:03:09 [29970] gentoo-portage del. metadata/timestamp.chk 0 > gentoo-portage.log-20100122.gz:2010/01/21 20:03:09 [7617] gentoo-portage del. metadata/timestamp.chk 0 > gentoo-portage.log-20100122.gz:2010/01/22 02:33:11 [10630] gentoo-portage del. metadata/timestamp.chk 0
Since we're using the rsync flag "--delete" I'm guessing that this basically means that the file didn't exist on the master server at the time of syncing. Why is that? Should we start testing for the existence of this file before syncing? Thank you.
