Description Alon Bar-Lev (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-05-16 21:28:55 UTC

emerge-webrsync use GENTOO_MIRRORS in order to fetch the snapshot. This is great!
But in a configuration where there is no conactivity to the internet, setting GENTOO_MIRRORS for portage is incorrect, as ebuilds may specify RESTRICT="mirror" and similar to bypass the GENTOO_MIRRORS.

The /etc/portage/mirrors::local was introduced to solve the above issue, so in these configurations the system has correct value for /etc/portage/mirrors::local and an empty GENTOO_MIRRORS.

As emerge-webrsync is portage tool, it is expected it follow the same rule.

From "man portage" /etc/portage/mirrors:
You may also set a special mirror type called "local".  This list of mirrors will  be  checked  before GENTOO_MIRRORS  and  will  be  used even if the package has RESTRICT="mirror" or RESTRICT="fetch".

Consistent behavior between tools (DISTDIR usage bug#220111, persistence KEYWORDS&USE usage bug#219369, Mirror look up this one) is important for predictable usage.

The following statement can be added to the for loop just before GENTOO_MIRRORS:
$([ -e "${ROOT}/etc/portage/mirrors" ] && \ sed -n -e 's/#.*//' -e 's/^[\t]*//g' -e '/local/s/local[\t]*//p' \
Thank you.
