Bug #21

[fullpkg-build] fetch all sources while building packages

Description

Like Gentoo's parallel-fetch. It's useful for packagers with slow networks and for PKGBUILDs using slow mirrors.

Start fetching all sources in background, with a separate log. Before building a package wait until its sources are fetched (needs locks).

I think this could be easily implemented in a «fullpkg-dl» which adds a file named «SRC_DOWNLOADED» on folders which has finished already.

I added an option for download in building order, maybe we could instruct «fullpkg» to run «fullpkg-dl» on backgrownd and instruct «fullpkg-build» to wait till that file exist on dir.

What do you think about that idea for implementation?

i don't know. i've been using treepkg without problem for some time now and never looked back at fullpkg. if i want to fetch the source beforehand or for offline building, i just run `makepkg -gc` on the package dirs... i know it's too manual :P
