So then sets (beyond the three above) are unmasked to ~arch, at least, then? Because last I knew they were in the (last I knew) hard-masked 2.2 series, only. So even unmasking them to ~arch would be big news, here. (And, since I run ~arch, if they're ~arch keyworded and not in package.mask, they're not masked, from my viewpoint. They might be ~arch, but that's not masked, but ~arch. Masked means either an entry in package.mask or KEYWORDS="", to me.) -- Duncan - List replies preferred. No HTML msgs.
