Subject: [gentoo-dev] dev-libs/libusbx:1 the default provider for virtual/libusb:1 (for ~arch)

Fedora rawhide and ArchLinux switched to libusbx and followed suit in 
our virtual/libusb:1.
Debian is considering the switch also. We'll see...

I've been in contact with the new maintainer, and he assured me the 
compability will be kept for libusb-compat.

Happy testing,

# emerge -C dev-libs/libusb:1
# emerge -1 dev-libs/libusbx:1

Perhaps a Portage News item worthy after stabilization later on...
I have no plans to rush this.
