I appreciate the offer :) The email to the list is mostly to keep
everyone up to date on where we stand (actual number is in the 50's,
there's a few bugs almost not worth tracking down in this script). The
best help is probably in testing ebuilds as they hit the tree in ~x86,
especially those listed on http://gentoo.tamperd.net/stable (filtered
to your platform(s) and perl herd) as being masked for inordinate
amounts of time (>90 to 100 days as a rule of thumb) and filing bugs
(http://bugs.gentoo.org) that they work fine. Bumping and adding new
versions is easy, but without feedback its hard to know successes vs
failures. Its easy for me, cpw, and superlag (and any other stragglers
:) to say they work - but short of error reports, its hard to see if
packages are getting used at all. Thanks!
