Description Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2015-03-13 13:42:14 UTC
The idea is rather simple: I list a repository and want it to be synced via 'emerge --sync' / emaint but I don't want Portage to use it for dependency resolution, p.mask etc. Something along the lines of:

  location = /var/db/repos/funtoo
  sync-type = git
  auto-sync = yes
  enabled = no
Comment 1 Brian Dolbec gentoo-dev 2015-03-13 14:22:16 UTC
I suppose an emerge option to override that would also be desired.

emerge --enable-repo funtoo -1a some-pkg
Comment 2 Brian Dolbec gentoo-dev 2015-03-13 14:36:03 UTC
Which would also imply the inverse

emerge --disable-repo funtoo emerge -1a some-pkg
