1 Has anyone ever noticed that portage tree contains a lot of md5 hashes,
2 which are not at all important for using it? I think that it does not make
3 reliability or functionality smaller any bit if those would all stay in sync
4 servers - anyway, syncing would go much faster and this tree smaller. What
5 about removing all those md5 hashes and downloading them only when they're
6 needed?
8 Tambet - technique evolves to art, art evolves to magic, magic evolves to
9 just doing.
