+After many years of stalled development, the catalyst repository is
+going to have major changes introduced to master in the next few days.
+The work done in the rewrite branch[1] by Brian Dolbec, is finally
+going to be merged into master through the pending branch[2].
+Anyone using catalyst to produce stages is advised to use the latest
+release (currently 2.0.16). If you need to track the stable branch,
+please use the catalyst 2.0.9999 ebuild that tracks the 2.X branch.
+Anyone wanting to help with catalyst development and testing is
+encouraged to use the 9999 version and report issues to the catalyst
+team, pending the understanding that master may be broken during the
+next few months.
