Description Allen Brooker (AllenJB) 2009-11-20 10:38:52 UTC
When using emerge -pf <package>,  portage lists each file for each mirror. This results in excessive output when several mirrors are specified.

I would suggest listing each file only for the first listed mirror. An extra option could be added to list all mirrors, like the current output (or perhaps reuse --verbose).
