Description Alon Bar-Lev (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-10-27 08:48:17 UTC
Currently only git, cvs, rsync are accepted while disable is impossible.

Adding 'none' as value works, but issues warning...

Please consider accepting the 'none' atom.

sync-type =
sync-uri =

That's working, I did not set sync-uri to empty.
So either document this, or accept 'none' type or similar?

Usage of empty value is consistent with other variables.

I have updated documentation:;a=commitdiff;h=cea8f3ebe590663b01437d7906af7f5cc05085f9
