4 The cache in /metadata/cache is updated through rsync. Though it seems
5 that it is not guaranteed to be up-to-date (I haven't studied how to set
6 up a gentoo rsync mirror, so I'm not sure how and when the cache is
7 compiled). If this cache was guaranteed to be up-to-date, then
8 /var/cache/edb/dep would be 100% redundant. Right now it's 98% redundant,
9 and emerge spends a lot of time regenerating that missing 2%.
