Subject: [gentoo-dev] Unmasking common server applications

Hello

Whilst rolling out Gentoo Linux on our flat server I was taken aback to 
see a large proportion of common server applications masked.  Here are 
listed some of them.

phpBB
xalan
phpsysinfo
mailman
apache-2.0.46

As I'm sure users will sympathise, installing a mixture of stable and 
testing packages causes portage to complain about depgraph creation and 
masking.  This in turn results in the update world command throwing 
errors.  I'd prefer our server not to suffer from this common and 
difficult problem.

So this is a plea for these applications to be unmasked and also a 
stronger plea for apache2 to be moved into stable.  Apache2 worked right 
out of the box with PHP and SSL.

Please post feedback.  Many thanks.
