they had plan to rewrite it in C but I don't know if they made any progress

will that even help? i dont doubt that python is part of the reason for the bad performance, but compared to other package manager portage needs to do far more calculations.

checking the useflags, dependency, useflag on dependency, package masking, compiler optimizations etc etc. being rewritten in c wont reduce the amount of calculations.

>>81184438
If they have some big dumb loop at one point (which might happen because of all the calculations like you said), making it in C should save a lot of time.

>>81184262
its a bit slow but a none issue for me or at least i feel like so because i use a minimal settup.

>>81184438
Portage uses only one core ATM. Rewriting it in C will have a negligible performance impact compared to making it multithreaded.

can't they make it multithreaded in python? cant you like "import multithread" or smth
