Hi,
normally emerge updates the portage chache after every "emerge sync" to my mind it takes nowadays a lot of more time to do this than with earlier versions of portage.
Is this normal? To my mind its no so good when portage needs more than 10 minutes to complete "emerge sync" on a PentiumM 1,5 GHz with 512MB of RAM.
Is this a problem of my system oder a generel issue of portage and is there a chance to speed it up?!

I won't masquerade as an expert on portage or python but there are defintely ways to speed it up.
