The only thing I use outside of Portage is Tomcat.  Because Im a<div class="im"><br>

<br>I get that there are issues with the Tomcat up-stream, but it doesn&#39;t change the fact that it takes hours to get it working, and updates often break the work done to get things properly in place.<br><br> </div><blockquote class="gmail_quote" style="margin:0pt 0pt 0pt 0.8ex;border-left:1px solid rgb(204,204,204);padding-left:1ex">

stop using it so, it works for your ebuilds, why not here ?<br>
