Subject: [gentoo-dev] Excessive rsync time after git migration
Date: Sat, 15 Aug 2015 19:29:53
This might already be covered in one of the other e-mail threads, but I've been
super-busy as of late and just recently ran 'emerge --sync' on my main dev box
for the first time after the git migration.  I just synced my main dev box
again, ~10 hours after the last sync, but it looks like the 'Manifest' files
for *every* package in the tree are getting downloaded with each sync.

I compared two Manifest files from a given package that shouldn't have changed
in the last 10 hours (sys-kernel/mips-sources), and there is nothing different
timestamp wise or content wise between then.  So I'm not sure what's causing
'emerge --sync' to re-fetch the whole file.

Has anyone else noticed this and/or have a workaround?  It's causing some
excessive disk thrashing, and what used to be a few seconds to sync is now
taking 5-10mins or more (depending on which machine I'm syncing).
