10 Glad to hear that you got over that hurdle!

17 is down for us, too. Hopefully, it'll be back up soon. In
18 the meantime, you can add this to your /etc/make.conf file:
22 This will cause "fetch" to look at the sourceforge mirror before checking
23 ibiblio.

30 Normally, maintainers add the digests to CVS, but sometimes we forget. I'd
31 check with Pete on this one. If you want, you can do an "ebuild foo.ebuild
32 fetch", and when it complains of no digest, try doing this:
34 # ebuild foo.ebuild digest
36 This should generate the digest on your system so that ebuild is satisfied.
37 But the real solution is to bug Pete to put the digest on cvs :)
