eix-sync

eix-sync can run emerge --regen after syncing ebuild repositories:

FILE /etc/eix-sync.conf
# Sync all ebuild repositories
*
# Regenerate ebuild repository metadata
@emerge --regen || true

eix-update

eix-update can utilize the metadata cache generated by emerge --regen for a speedup and better accuracy. To enable this, set the OVERLAY_CACHE_METHOD to assign in /etc/eixrc/01-cache.

FILE /etc/eixrc/01-cacheSetting OVERLAY_CACHE_METHOD
OVERLAY_CACHE_METHOD="assign"
