Thanks for the patch. However, fetching all AUX files IMHO is a bit too much. This is exactly the reason why eupdate does some extensive magic to detect needed files from $FILESDIR. I'm not sure how others feel about potentially having more files in $FILESDIR than the latest ebuild requires, but I know that for the tree this is not desirable. That said, my opinion on the matter is that it is a known limitation of ecopy, that I won't fix. It probably is possible to "port" the fetch_files function from eupdate to ecopy, but someone else should do it then (and maintain it). -- Fabian Groffen Gentoo on a different level -- gentoo-alt@l.g.o mailing list
