Yes and no. There are design issues still in the works with it. I  
think that the general consensus is that it's definitely _not_ ready  
for prime-time, yet.

Uh, no? The x11-libs/qt deps are indeed correct. Please do your  
homework before posting to this list; you should read up on Gentoo  
policy about DEPENDS and packages that are in 'system', such as  
baselayout.

Should Gentoo policy change, I would have absolutely no problem (and  
would actually encourage) adding 'virtual/baselayout' to DEPENDS  
where necessary. Brian Harring has also discussed this on gentoo-dev,  
in relation to 'BDEPENDS'.

Again, do your homework. Stable packages are a subset of testing  
packages for any given arch. By specifying '~arch' in your KEYWORDS  
(in /etc/make.conf), you are actually implicitly specifying 'arch'.

What automated builds? AFAIK, we don't have an automated build  
system, and one won't exist for a Real Long Time(tm). Once it does,  
I'm all for keeping a stable branch. Until then, I find that keeping  
a stable branch is way more work than we can keep up with, for all  
the reasons cited in my previous message(s) to this list.

I don't mean to sound rude, here; I apologize in advance if I do.  
Please don't take any of this personally.
