5 Actually, I probably just underquoted. I am well-aware that there are
6 issues with ARM, hence my previous suggestion that it might make sense
7 to vary this by profile.
9 Let me try my post again, with a bit more quoting:

25 Hit your head on the wall because it doesn't contain a kernel?
26 Stage3s in general aren't functional systems.
28 Insofar as much as he was talking about ARM I get the point. Insofar
29 as he is taking about amd64, not so much. Which he was talking about
30 in that paragraph I can only guess at.
32 But as I later said in the same email:
34 If it actually had collisions with other network managers I think
35 there would be more of a case for removing it.
37 After all, we stick openrc and portage (the PM) in the stage3 and you
38 don't exactly need those in order to run Gentoo...
