Subject: [gentoo-user] sync-type: rsync vs git

Message-Id: t4bjj0$1vt$
1 A while back I switched one of my machines sync-type for the gentoo
2 repo from rsync to git using
3 because that machine is behind a firewall that stopped allowing rsync
4 connections.
6 Is there any advantage (either to me or the Gentoo community) to
7 continue to use rsync and the rsync pool instead of switching the
8 rest of my machines to git?
10 I've been very impressed with the reliability and speed of sync
11 operations using git they never take more than a few seconds. When
12 using rsync, it seems like I regularly used to have to spend time
13 trying different mirrors and hard-wiring one in my config file because
14 the one I (or the pool) had chosen had fallen back to using a Bell-212
15 modem for its internet connection. Sync operations often used to take
16 many minutes and would sometimes just hang.
