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:

>>> begin
It is possible to use a CVS version of the portage tree.  This is not
recommended for average users, and only required for developers.
<<< end
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
with it...
