Any reason for this? It shouldn't cause any merge conflicts as the difference between 'fat' and 'slim' are lines added/removed (I suppose DIST hashes would be generated in the same form as they are now, so SHA1, SHA256 and RMD160). It's just over- complicating things imho. Portage already is aware of scm vs rsync repositories as for instance some repoman checks are omitted for those scm ones. Therefore it seems correct to rely on this mechanism and let portage/repoman generate right (TM) Manifest for repository being used. -- regards MM
