Portage tree subset

Using a Portage Tree Subset

By default, rsync will check the contents of /etc/portage/rsync_excludes (if it exists) which contains the categories or packages that you don't want rsync to update.

One can also include specific packages by placing a + at the beginning of the line. The included package must appear before the exclude pattern, though. See my rsync_excludes.
