while emerging the dev-db/mysql-4.0.25-r2 ebuild, portage will fetch the
mysql-extras-20050908.tar.bz2 archive which is'nt on any mirror
Steps to Reproduce:
it's now "mysql-extras-20050920.tar.bz2",
the solution here is a "emerge --sync".
This file has been introduced lately to avoid distribuiting patches with the
portage tree (and so to avoid users that even don't know MySQL to rsync them).
In it's firsts days it has changed name frequently and *at the same time* in all
Since gentoo mirrors have delete files not mentioned in at least one ebuild it
has been deleted too.
In the future the "mysql-extras" version will change only in the ebuilds that
really need it, and everyone will be able to emerge mysql also from a tree older
than one week.
