1 Ok, Here goes...
4 How large is the package archive for gentoo, assuming a full copy of the
5 portage tree, and all of the source tarballs in the distfiles directory
6 of the average server?
8 Would it be possible to draw down the whole archive all in one shot
9 using wget or similar, dump it all into a directory on the hard drive,
10 and direct portage there for the distribution files?
12 I know this would basically be equivelent to making a local mirror of
13 the distrservers, and I would have to make sure that my portage tree
14 matches up to the files actually on the hard drive. ^^ What other
15 concerns would I need to look at at this point. :P
