11 How certain are you of this guess? How long is long enough? Mostly?
13 At the moment, it beats mostly on our efforts to it; and in the near
14 future, it'll need to adapt further to newer EAPIs as well as further
15 bugs and other complexities in the Portage trees. Otherwise you'll get
16 a lot of "we can't continue because they stopped developing Portage".
18 Hence that's why it comes up every now and then as a subject, hence
19 someone finally made the call to reinforcement, ...; so, it won't have
20 to continue beating on its own at all.
