Description Matze Braun 2003-03-05 08:41:16 UTC
It's impossible to update the rsync package in portage. Because "rsync" is
interpreted as a command even though a -u was passed before rsync.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. portage -pu rsync
or protage -u rsync
Actual Results:  
[root@taylor] /home/matze > emerge -pu rsync
emerge: the "sync" action does not support "--pretend."

[root@taylor] /home/matze > emerge -u rsync
>>> starting rsync with rsync://
... (updated my portage tree)

Expected Results:  
The correct result would have been ro update the rsync package
