Sorry to start from scratch again... but:
Section 3 (Using CVS)
Although this section itself is ok, it some sort of comes out of the blue.
Why the hell whould I want to use CVS? What is CVS anyway? I feel it
needs a little introduction like:
It is possible to use a CVS version of the portage tree. This is not
recommended for average users, and only required for developers.
Where the hell is this necessary for anyway? A developer will know (s)he
needs CVS in order to do something, right? I feel developer information
is somehow misplaced on a end-user document. Perhaps we better move it
into a page on the wiki.
By the way, I remember that I first checked out the tree on my
/Volumes/Scratch partition which is HFS+. I never experienced any problem
