Few days ago I added usersync to FEATURES. Please have a look to the attached emerge --sync log.
For example :
rsync: failed to set times on "/usr/portage/sci-biology/phred": Operation not permitted (1)
Yes, because :
$ ls -l /usr/portage/sci-biology/ | grep phred
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 févr. 27 01:07 phred
It is owned by root.
Created attachment 198085 [details]
Created attachment 198087 [details]
output of emerge --sync
It would be a waste of resources to check all permissions every time. I think we only need to document the initial permissions setup that is required.
This is fixed in git:
This is fixed in 2.1.13 and 2.2.0_alpha189.
