I'm aware of the point of thin-Manifests (It's a long time running conversation), however it seems to be something more to the order of usage for distribution, in other words, overlays and tree's like regen2's and funtoo's. if you aren't distributing the tree for user consumption... then you'll still have to generate full manifests for rsync, it would seem easy and more space, processor effective to make it like metadata and cron generation, dev's don't really need them when hacking ebuilds do they? they're just a security/integrity measure for end users. I suppose the reason for devs to use them is they would be using the git tree to update their own systems. -- Caleb Cushing http://xenoterracide.blogspot.com
