Subject: [gentoo-dev] pkg_nofetch: $A vs. $SRC_URI

If you have an ebuild with a non-standard pkg_nofetch, please ensure
that you use $SRC_URI instead of $A!

This is because if you have FEATURES=mirror or FEATURES=cvs, attempts to
download all of the source files for digesting or verification will hit
pkg_nofetch and $A is only the subset of $SRC_URI, causing misleading
messages to be displayed about what needs to be downloaded still.

Plasmaroo: could you perhaps change this in the devmanual?

I'll be looking through the tree to fix any existing occurrences of this.
