Can it be a file

Is this true [that repos.conf can be a file]? On Project:Portage/Sync there is no mention that /etc/portage/repos.conf could be a file. — The preceding unsigned comment was added to the article by Charles17 (talkcontribs) 23 April 2015 and moved here by Maffblaster 23 April 2015

Yes, it is true. Also, next time you should post questions, concerns, comments, etc. that you have on an article on the associated discussion page. :) --Maffblaster (talk) 15:54, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
Sorry for the misplaced InfoBox. This place indeed is much better.
So, regarding the question "file or directory, what about adding the developer's recommendation from the forum? --Charles17 (talk) 06:02, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
It was definitely a good catch on your part. Feel free to change the information in this article when the developer confirms that the use of repos.conf as a file has been depreciated in favor of the repos.conf directory. Keep up the good work! --Maffblaster (talk) 07:09, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

IMHO these examples are not best placed here. The Rsync example only needs to be created if it differs from /usr/share/portage/config/repos.conf and Git example only showing the other sync method should better be homed on the Sync related article. --Charles17 (talk) 07:33, 27 May 2015 (UTC)
