Description Fabian Groffen gentoo-dev 2018-06-04 06:32:57 UTC
!!! Manifest verification failed:
Manifest mismatch for
  __exists__: expected: False, have: True

It seems like we need to retry the rsync when such file exists.  Verification errors are likely to exist for syncs like these even if we would ignore this file.
Comment 1 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2018-06-04 07:22:05 UTC
Where does this file come from?
Comment 2 Fabian Groffen gentoo-dev 2018-06-04 09:39:42 UTC (aka adds this apparently
Comment 3 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2018-06-04 15:20:50 UTC
I think we probably don't want to handle this on the client side. It's possible to atomically swap rsync trees on the server side, by using rename to atomically update the rsyncd config so that it points to the new tree.
Comment 4 Fabian Groffen gentoo-dev 2020-02-02 16:11:40 UTC
I've accepted this as the new normal
Comment 5 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2020-02-02 22:47:01 UTC
Yeah, it's hard to justify client side handling when atomic swap is relatively easy to implement on the server side.
Comment 6 Fabian Groffen gentoo-dev 2020-02-03 07:13:47 UTC
Yes, but we don't control the server(s), yet add them to your official pools.  End of story, as user I get a failure pretty much every time I sync.

We can only work around the fact we don't have read-only atomic deltas on the client.
Comment 7 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2020-02-03 07:32:33 UTC
We should add a retry option.
