Default Anybody having trouble with eix-remote?

I haven't been able to run eix-remote for a few days. I thought it
might be related to https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=408567 but
the maintainer says it's not, and indeed, the remote cache file that
gets downloaded here appears to be more or less empty. (46 bytes...)

Just want to see if others are experiencing the similar problems. I've
seen this on a couple of machines.

Thanks,
Mark

Probably your eix cachefile was *not* updated successfully.
Unless the above messages suggest another cause or you specified a
wrong filename, the most likely cause of this is that the server uses
another eix version than you or produced broken data. Please check whether
EIX_REMOTEARCHIVE is a valid *.tar.bz2 archive containing eix cachefiles
(you can download it using fetch).
If this is not the case (but was freshly downloaded), please report a bug.
Note that the archive is *not* broken if only the cachefile format versions
differ: In that case only report a bug if the eix cachefile format versions
in the downloaded file are *older* than that of the most current ~x86 eix
version in the portage tree (but first retry after several days before
reporting such a bug to give the server maintainers a chance to upgrade
after a version bump of eix).
Conversely, if the downloaded versions are even newer than that supported by
your eix, you will have to upgrade to the most current ~x86 version of eix
to use eix-remote: This inconvenience cannot be avoided and is not a bug!

Apparently there were some changes in eix in the permissions area that
caused problems with (I guess) the generation of this file. The
maintainer tells me the eix problems are fixed. I haven't seen a
change in the file size yet and so far eix-remote continues to fetch a
file with nothing in it. I suspect it will likely start working later
today.

Cheers,
Mark

Yea, me too, and I was about to ask the same thing.
Let's see if it starts working soon, as the maintainer said.

Thanks for verifying that.

As of this morning the remote file is once again being created:

http://dev.gentooexperimental.org/eix_cache

You should see something there with a size around 1.5M. eix-remote -q
update is currently downloading and doing its work once again.

Cheers,
Mark
