Hello Everybody,

In an ongoing effort to model the best possible organisation of the
portage tree, I am pleased to announce a new category: x11-themes.  The
purpose of this category will be to contain, well, themes :)

To this end, the existing themes in portage have been migrated.  In


all have a new home in x11-themes.

In order to upgrade your personal emerges, please do the following:

  # emerge sync --clean

     to get the latest portage tree. The --clean option will ensure that
     stale ebuilds are being removed from your local tree.

   # emerge --pretend unmerge <your_app>

     Without the --pretend option, this will remove your app.

   # emerge --pretend x11-theme/<your_app>

      And this will remerge the correct version.

As all future releases of these applications will be made in the new 
category this upgrade is recommended.

Also, please note that app-misc/xscreensaver has been moved to
x11-misc/xscreensaver, so please follow the above steps analogously to
upgrade your personal emerges.

Sorry for the short term inconvenience, but this will serve us all better
in the long-term.
