Before, I never saw saw many different complains about "emerge rsync eclass problems" until this week.

Does anyone know what's going on? Is it related to Zynot's fork? Or it's just some big reorganization of eclasses without proper QA?

Is there any advise that we, mortal users can use to preserve our happiness? Is there anything we, mortals can help developers?

The huge number of invalid eclasses problem was due to metadata being generated incorrectly on the master rsync server and is fixed.

The GPL-2 eclass thing is probably a remnant of last night's CVS tree moving to another server, and will be fixed soon.

The nature of CVS being what it is, some errors will creep past people even if they're being careful. Rest assured, if it was serious enough that something broke, it likely wouldn't have made it to the rsync servers.
