Description mathias stearn 2003-08-11 20:15:32 UTC
this is a speed enhanced portage that has a 2x speedup. It also includes a editor 
(which depends on PyQt) that will handle updateing the db. For more info, refer to the 
included readme.

I saw the source code and tested it(cdb)
Then I like your patch because it's very simple and effective :)

I have a question.
In portdbapi.aux_get(), why are you omitting many code?

And I found a little problem.
- dbdir=settings["DBDIR"]
+ dbdir=settings["DBDIR"]+"/"

anyway, I think we should include this patch :)

RE: #3 
Actually, I just got back from a month long vacation, this is code that was written b4 then, so it 
is based off of 2.0.47-r1.  While I was gone, I did some more work and brought it up to .47-r3. 
Unfortunately, Hotmail lost the file that i emailed my self :( so im waitng for the owner of the 
comp i used to reemail.  
As to your bug, thnx for pointing it out, ill be attaching a fixed tarball, with a more apropriate 
default directory (/var/db/cache).  
Also, I think the dict is the better option. It is easier to work with, and doesnt add any extra 
deps. The file is also guarenteed by pythin to be cross-platform, and I have no way of testing 
this with cdb. So far, the only reason cdb is still in there is becuase I didnt have the heart to 
delete a week's woth of work that is still working ;). It cauld also stand more testing to 
deturmine which is really fastest. My box is a 3gb p2 400 lappy, which i doubt is a typical 
gentoo box. 
Last thing, did you try out the ebuild editor/browser? It my first standalone python prog, so I 
wanna get some opinions. I also think it might be useful to some devs.

Forward duping this on bug 83371, the speed up is via a different db backend.
Beyond that, re-open a seperate bug with the portage-editor if you still are looking for it inclussion
