1 Hello list,
3 I have a little server box on my LAN, which I use as a git server. I'm having
4 a bit of trouble with it pro tem so I decided to switch the git sync source on
5 this box.
7 I removed the entry pointing to the local server in repos.conf/gentoo.conf and
8 put in 'sync-uri ='
10 Emerge --sync still insisted on going to the local server, which was not there
11 so it stopped.
13 I had to remove /usr/portage/.git before the repos.conf/gentoo.conf entry was
14 respected. And that meant stripping out the whole of /usr/portage and fetching
15 the whole lot again.
17 Is this expected behaviour?

21 Peter.
