Description Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2020-03-15 19:46:17 UTC
In order to make FEATURES=compress-build-logs more scalable for emerge --jobs, we should offload the compression to a separate process (the PipeLogger class will manage this process). Eventually we can make the compression program configurable, but that will required updates to all the code that assumes gzip compression.
