These two are directly connected together. I've already coded some basic support for Thin Manifests in my newly-created Portage branch. The branch itself can be looked up at: And the particular commit I'm mentioning here: I've did as much as I could without getting more information, and turning everything around. What it can is: 1) Detect '.git' and enable Thin Manifests (only dirty check), 2) generate Thin Manifests with only DIST checksums, 3) merge ebuilds with Thin Manifests. I have tested it against a random kde-sunset and x11 overlay ebuilds (the former having DIST checksums, the latter being empty). What we don't (I guess so, I haven't checked it) support now is non-existent Manifests. Are we supposed to support them, or should we always generate Manifests, even if they will be empty? -- Best regards, Michał Górny <> <xmpp:mgorny@××××××.ru>
