unwritten Repository Format

The unwritten repository format is used by Exherbo to keep track of packages that have not yet been written and packages that used to exist but that have now been deleted ('graveyard'). It is not used by Gentoo and derived distributions.

As well as the general keys supported for all repositories, the following keys have meaning for unwritten format repositories:

location
The location of the repository. Mandatory.
name
The name of the repository. Defaults to unwritten.
sync
How to sync the repository. See Syncers for supported formats. Optional if the repository does not need to be synced. Different sync URIs to use when a different source is requested may be specified, e.g. sync = git+http://host/path local: git+file:///path.
sync_options
Any options to be passed to the syncer. Optional. Options for alternative sources are specified using the same format as for sync.
