Description Caleb Cushing 2008-04-25 21:39:24 UTC
metastore is a tool to store the metadata of files/directories/links in a file tree to a separate file and to later compare and apply the stored metadata to said file tree. I wrote the tool as a supplement to git which does not store all metadata, making it unsuitable for e.g. storing /etc in a repo. metastore could also be helpful if you want to create a tarball of a file tree and make sure that "everything" (e.g. xattrs, mtime, owner, group) is stored along with the files.

I'm guessing that dev-util/metastore would be a good location.

Reproducible: Always

Comment 4 Arne Babenhauserheide 2009-03-02 07:14:06 UTC
For me the metastore git repo doesn't like the --depth 1 setting from the git.eclass: 

EGIT_FETCH_CMD="git clone --bare --depth 1"

Without "--depth 1" the cloning works. 

Best wishes,

I add EGIT_FETCH_CMD="git clone --bare".

The server closes connection with "--depth 1" option. 
The error is: 
"Initialized empty Git repository in /usr/portage/distfiles/git-src/metastore/
fatal: read error (Connection reset by peer)"
