6 Well, I mean't every gentoo one says emerge --sync, I was wondering
7 what commands I could run/throw into a script to grab exactly what I
8 want. Also, how would I get rsync to download/sync to a different
9 location (upstream syncing, not syncing with local clients), such as
10 /mnt/srv/portage/ or whatnot.
