Subject: OpenRC and baselayout 2 will be stabilized on May 8
Date: Fri, 6 May 2011 01:38:44 -0500
OpenRC [1], the replacement for Gentoo's current services system (known as 
baselayout), will be stabilized on May 8. It replaces the previous 
bash-only rc system in baselayout with an rc system that has a C-based 
core and uses only POSIX-compliant shell code.

You will see an update for sys-apps/baselayout to 2.x and a new package, 
sys-apps/openrc. It is recommended that you perform this update as soon 
as possible.

After these packages are emerged, it is absolutely critical that you 
immediately update your configuration files with dispatch-conf, 
etc-update or a similar tool [2] then follow the steps in the OpenRC 
Migration Guide [3].

Failure to follow all of these steps will result in an unbootable 
system. If that happens, you will need to boot from a LiveCD or LiveDVD, 
mount your root filesystem, chroot into that environment [4] and follow the 
above steps.
