I am needing to allow for further configuration of rsync for syncing portage.
The addition of RSYNC_OPTIONS in make.conf could alleviate this need for me,
but what do you guys think?
In my case, the local rsync mirror needs to be password protected to meet our
company's security requirements. The patch allows me to add to make.conf:
On another note, I was wondering if it was completely necessary to have the
'--exclude="..."' options built directly into the emerge script? It's
excluding /distfiles, /local, and /packages. I could see a use in being able
to modify these. What about a default --exclude-from file that could exclude
those dirs, but allow the administrator to modify them?
I'm not very familiar with the process of submitting patches. Would someone
point me in a direction where I should be headed next? Maybe submit a bug
report as a feature request..?
