Actually the wiki has /usr/local/portage, but the default rsync options have has --exclude=/local for a very long time. It might be safe to remove it, but I guess it's probably safest to trigger a warning message first, since some people might still be using it with rsync-verify disabled. -- Thanks, Zac
