Subject: [gentoo-dev] emerge rsync obsolete?
Date: Sun, 11 May 2003 11:27:00

I'm planning on substituting every "emerge rsync" I can find in the docs to
"emerge sync". Is there *any* reason why I should not do it?

AFAIK is Portage 2.0.47-r10 stable on all supported architectures and
2.0.47-r10 has /usr/bin/emerge with "sync" being the same as "rsync":

                if x[2:]=="rsync":
                    #print red("*** --rsync has been deprecated.")
                    #print red("***   Please use '--sync' instead.")
            if x=="rsync":
                #print red("***   Please use '--sync' instead.")
if myaction in ["sync","rsync"] and (not "--help" in myopts):
