* Now talking on #gentoo-portage

emerge development only; ebuild dev questions go to #gentoo-dev-help and
usage questions go to #gentoo || anonsvn access: svn co
svn://twobit.net/portage/, rewrite is at main/branches/savior, 2.1 is at
main/trunk, 2.0 is at main/branches/2.0 and sandbox is at path-sandbox/trunk
