id like to see kportagemaster and portage master altered to support super user mode. where a regular user could view the packages but clicking the administrator mode would ask for a password and then have root rights.

and
id like to see emerge have the ability to download all the sources in the backgroud, so that as emerge builds the first package, the other packages are being downloaded. it would shave a little time off of merging packages for broadband users, but slower connections would see a much larger benefit.

and
id like to see emerge prompt me at the end of the emerge to update the config files, like a quasi CONFIG_PROTECT=1 so that i have the option of overwriting files immediately, or just letting it write the new configuration files as it does now for me to edit later..
for instance :
emerge world -u -a (-a for ask? -p is already taken :) )

and
maybee a utility to view anything added via rc-update..i know, go into /etc/runlevels..but wouldn't a nice "rc-stat?" app be great?

and
how about a utiliy to view all files in a /bin folder? right now i have a bash script that just runs find and lists the output of those directories..

ok,
ill back off now, just a wish list :) im am very much more satisfied with gentoo than i have been with any other distro...but id still like to see it improved of coarse :)

Check here. The more testers I get the faster I
can get it into an official portage release.
