Subject: [gentoo-dev] Multiple DISTDIR

1 I've patch (VERSION="2.0.47-r10") and to use a
2 new variable in make.conf. The new variable is DISTDIRS="directory1
3 directory2 etc".
4 The purpose of this is to allow people to have distfiles in multiple
5 locations (ie. cdrom, nfs, etc).
7 What happens:
8 1. Look in DISTDIR for files (as normal)
9 2. If not found, traverse through all directories in DISTDIRS looking
10 for files.
11 3. Set a new environment variable (DDIR) pointing to correct directory
12 holding the files.
13 4. will use DDIR if set instead of DISTDIR.
15 Notes:
16 1. I couldn't really figure out what the envirnoment variables A and
17 AA were meant for.
19 2. I thought it best to avoid messing with the envirnoment variable
20 DISTDIR to avoid confusion/problems (hence the new DDIR).
22 3. How can I get the latest cvs copy of portage as I would assume
23 people would want a diff against that.
25 This will need further testing/fixing as I've only spent a few hours
26 on it and I'm a non-python user.
28 Anyone doing something like this or anyone have any comments?
