11 This isn't an issue specific to Go; Rust can have the same problem.
13 I'm speaking mostly for Go; I'm not sure how Rust handles this exactly.
15 If we could define an extra phase function that runs after
16 src_unpack, say call it src_fetch_extra, which has access to the
17 network, we could completely eliminate EGO_SUM and most of the go-module
18 eclass code around src_unpack.
20 At a very high level, if src_fetch_extra is not defined, nothing
21 happens. If it is defined, however, it would be called with "${S}" as
22 the starting directory.
24 Could this be added to eapi 9?
26 If I had something like this for Go ebuilds at least, all of the big
27 manifests would disappear.
29 Thanks,
31 William
