8 Ok, from a discussion with Zac and a few others it seems that we should
9 add a layer of indirection, so instead of specifying atoms the tree has
10 a freeform version identifier, and portage can use it to look up the
11 required atoms by using a (remote) mapping file.
12 This new approach is implemented in
13 (it's basically a
14 combination of strategies D and E in d.g.o/~genone/docs/treedeps.txt)
16 This new patch also has a few other improvements:
17 - checks overlays too
18 - at sync time first check the tree format of the remote tree, if we
19 can't handle it the sync is aborted
20 - if no format specification is found warn the user about it (with the
21 intention to fail in a future version)
23 New intended merge date is this weekend or beginning of next week, so if
24 you have any objections, make them now.
