9 IMHO, this is the best solution proposed so far. It doesn't need a new
10 USE flag duplicating information which is already in RESTRICT (or am I
11 missing some corner cases here?), and it doesn't bother those who don't
12 care about this issue with new distfiles-*/ dirs, as with Kent's
13 proposal.
15 @Kent: Why do you think another distinction for RESTRICT=fetch is
16 neccessary? If it really is, it could also be integrated into this
17 solution, but I don't get the point -- either you're allowed to
18 redistribute it, or you're not. RESTRICT=fetch just signals Portage
19 that it won't be *technically* able to download the distfiles.
