failure to fetch distfiles for ebuilds in an overlay of another overlay

I have an ebuild which has a distfile from SourceForge? (in particular mirror://sourceforge/cdemu/vhba-module/vhba-module-20100822/vhba-module-20100822.tar.gz ). The ebuild is in an overlay of a repository which is itself overlay of portage ( the ebuild repo's metadata/layout.conf has "masters = A", and repo A has "masters = gentoo").

When attempting to fetch the distfile for the ebuild (assuming it's not fetched yet), Paludis first tries all mirrors from mirrors.conf, and if the file is not found there, it fails. But it should download the file from SourceForge? instead.

What happens if you change to "masters = gentoo A"?

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to invalid

Masters aren't inherited that way. A having B as a master and B having C as a master does not mean that A has C as a master.
