Description solar (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-03-27 20:12:43 UTC
So far the packages format seems to be working out great. There are a few pieces of useful info that we are excluding in the header. IE. I think we want to capture the -m* in the CFLAGS: 

In version 1 we should probably just outright drop MD5

We should also exclude REPO: gentoo and only display the non gentoo repo in order to stop waisting space and a few bytes bandwidth. Optional we add REPO: to the header for whatever parent type (I say parent is gentoo) and only display those which differ.

CONFIG_PROTECT_MASK= serves no use in the header as it applies to the build host only. A remote would never inherit those settings from a build host.

I'm sure there are other ideas/improvements we can do to it to reduce size and offer more meaningful results.
