Description Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2013-04-07 01:08:46 UTC
The idea support mirror:// URIs in PORTAGE_BINHOST for load-balancing, similar to the way they are supported in SRC_URI. Since these binhost mirrors serve a different purpose than thirdpartymirrors, they would have a separate configuration file, which might be called pkgmirrors.
