As part of the upcoming change to no longer distribute ChangeLogs in the
main tree, Infra would like to announce some updates to the rsync
The following legacy modules are hereby discontinued.
'gentoo-sec' was a 2004-era attempt at distributing Gentoo developer
GPG keyrings. There have been no sync attempts recorded on any of the
rsync.gentoo.org nodes in over 2 years, and the material therein all
dates to 2004 only.
'gentoo-x86-portage' was the older name of the 'gentoo-portage' module,
and was maintained as an alias. For the 2016 calender year to date,
there have been only 11 attempts to fetch the legacy name from any of
the rsync.gentoo.org official nodes.
Community mirrors (rsyncN.CC.gentoo.org) are encouraged to drop the old
modules at their convenience.
Approximately 2016/Nov/01, a new module will be available:
This module will contain the same directory structure as the repo/gentoo
tree (gentoo-portage module), but will ONLY contain ChangeLog files.
The update schedule may have gaps exceeding 6 hours initially.
Community mirrors (rsyncN.CC.gentoo.org) can prepare to mirror the new
module at their convenience.
Not sooner than 2016/Nov/15, ChangeLogs will be removed from the
'gentoo-portage' rsync module. They may or may not still be referenced
by the thick Manifests.
