Description nachtklavier 2003-12-04 01:54:43 UTC
# emerge --update --pretend rsync
emerge: the "sync" action does not support "--pretend."

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Comment 1 Radek Podgorny 2003-12-04 02:14:32 UTC
The whole "rsync" to "sync" mapping should be IMHO dropped...

Comment 2 Bjarke Istrup Pedersen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-12-04 04:27:19 UTC
I think the command should be changed to something like portage-update , so the emerge command shouldn't be used for that.
Comment 3 nachtklavier 2003-12-04 04:32:24 UTC
mmh, reading the second comment, i'm not sure if i understand it correctly. i just want to see what happens when i'm updating the package "rsync"... so i think emerge gets confused by whatever and thinks i want to sync something.
Comment 4 Bjarke Istrup Pedersen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-12-04 04:51:38 UTC
yep, that is also what i mean.
But then what if there is added a package called sync, then that one wouldn't work any longer.
That is why I surgest that the emerge command should not be used for updating the portage tree.
