Description Jan Pobrislo 2013-09-13 08:59:49 UTC
When the /usr/portage directory is missing and users uses --sync for first time the portage is pulled as expected. However when the directory is there but empty it fails to fetch it with no relevant error message and a returncode of 0.
This works with sys-apps/portage-, so it's a regression in 2.2

Reproducible: Always

This is fixed in 2.2.5.

respectfully, this isn't "RESOLVED" until a stable portage version has the fix.  Our stages are shipping a broken portage.

2.2.7 is stable -> FIXED
