Description charles17 2016-11-23 11:52:19 UTC
mirrorselect --rsync uses deprecated SYNC variable and make.conf if /etc/portage/repos.conf/gentoo.conf is missing

This should be replaced by a warning about the missing file, or even better, be changed to using repos.conf

This happens when starting with a stage3, since repos.conf/gentoo.conf doesn't exist by default.

The portage ebuild has some logic to automatically generate repos.conf/gentoo.conf when upgrading from older portage. Maybe mirrorselect could do something like that.

I need to get repos.conf support into catalyst is what is needed.
