parentBug #218559 - Make portdbapi automatically add sandbox write access to (diff)
* Make portdbapi.aux_get() automatically pull pre-generated metadata
directly from the metadata/cache/ directory when metadata-transfer is not enabled in FEATURES. This makes all cache modules behave similar to existing metadata_overlay module, except when FEATURES="metadata-transfer" has been explicitly enabled. * Remove metadata-transfer from FEATURES in make.globals so that it's no longer enabled by default. Users will be happy about this since the "Updating Portage cache" part of emerge --sync can be more time consuming than the rsync run itself. It's also nicer when when using PORTDIR over nfs or bind mounted in a chroot since there's no need to run emerge --metadata. * Update FEATURES="metadata-transfer" docs to warn users of the rsync tree to modify eclases in PORTDIR_OVERLAY if necessary instead of doing it directly in the rsync tree. * Relevant updates to /etc/portage/modules docs. svn path=/main/trunk/; revision=9930
