ok... following this upgrade path from an old prefix should work:
emerge -avuDe world
emerge -avuD world
this merges the last hybrid portage (the other one is masked by EAPI, at
least thats true for me...(??)), and after that uses that portage to
reinstall/update all packages. after that a normal update will give the
if the new portage is not masked by EAPI, that would be a problem. you'd
need to manually mask it while doing the -avuDe world.
the only problem is that the -avuDe world should never be stopped, since
otherwise a recalculation of dependencies will cause the non-hybrid
portage to be merged, which will (possibly) destroy (some) installed
packages - or at least prevents upgrades to run through smooth.
Should we provide some docs somewhere about this?
