Description Sumit Khanna 2003-10-23 17:30:42 UTC
example, if I do an "emerge -Up rsync" it will tell me that -p (pretend) can't
be using when doing an "emerge sync". Doing "emerge rsync" will begin to do an
"emerge sync" instead. The problem lies in the way emerge handles command line
arguments. This could becomne a problem with other packages that contian the
word "sync"

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. "emerge -Up rsync" OR
2. "emerge rsync"

Actual Results:  
it fails to emerge rsync and instead thinks I want to sync the portage tree.

Expected Results:  
emerge the rsync tool
