Default diff /usr/portage

Hi!

So im wondering, and i have not really done any research, if this has been up on discussion before..
but, wouldnt it be a pretty neat thing to do, to make "emerge --sync" do a diff on your /usr/portage compared to the remote repository.


Then, just merge the differences.

Would obviously make alot of sense, if you do, say, daily emerge --sync's.
(so you could like check if the diff became more than X lines, then just clear /usr/portage (as it does today))


Sounds like a good idea, in my head, atleast...

Best regards

That's how it works, based on rsync.

Further questions and explanations may be better off on the support
channels, such as the user-list, #gentoo or the forums, but not here,
as this isn't a development issue.

cheers,
