Description Doug Shea 2002-05-10 23:53:36 UTC
I'm of the opinion that when I rsync, I don't need to see a scroll of all the
packages. Seeing the names of the files that are being downloaded is fine, but
it seems to list EVERY file.

Removing the '-v' from the rsync command-line does most of the trick, but also
removed the names of the files that were actually downloaded, which is not perfect.

In summary, as long as rsync just scrolls, it doesn't look like a finished,
"professional" product, IMHO. A small amount of work on the look of things,
since the functionality is already so amazing, would go a long way. :)

Well, to get you going in the mean time, try this:

emerge rsync | grep -v '/$'

The disadvantage is that you loose the updating of the download time
and so on... But now you can see what's new :)

also if you're piping the result of 'emerge rsync' somewhere, you might also 
want to filter out 'files.' 
emerge rsync | grep -v '/$' > test1 
emerge rsync | grep -v '/$' | grep -v 'files.' > test2 
diff test1 test2 
try it out ;)

Recent 2.0.x series portage has less-verbose rsyncs.
