Dear all,

I am going to maintain arm-linux. Just made an update to 

  http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/gentoo-alt/prefix

One thing I want to try is just to use arm to represent arm-linux.

GLEP22 defines that ${arch} defaults ${arch}-linux. We are treating x86
and x86-linux differently just for maintaining a separate prefix
tree. Now that gx86 are merged into prefix, and soon they will be one,
it is reasonable to expect arch-linux and arch finally to be merged,
too.

arm and arm-linux would be a first trial. Let's hope it can prove the
concept.

Yours,
Benda
