comment Can a linux user change their password without knowing the current password?
one convenient way of using PAM in combination with SSH key authentication is via pam_ssh_agent_auth, which has the advantage of replacing the password prompt by the (theoretically even more secure) key authentication SSH can use anyway

good points. However one can provide a script that only rsyncs specific paths and permit sudo on that

comment How to avoid emerge recalculating dependencies after adding required keywords/uses?
Sure, the point is I'd like to have emerge do all that in one step, i.e. do the --autounmask-write, the etc-update and then directly use the cached dependencies without ever returning to the prompt. Of course a parallel sync should indeed be blocked for that...
