1 Hiya all,
3 Just a quick note to let you know that the Paludis guys are happy to
4 inform you that they've just released version 0.6.0 of Paludis, the most
5 popular and widely used alternative to Portage. With this release
6 they're finally more or less VDB compatible with Portage, so switching
7 to and from Paludis is considerably more likely to work.
9 Paludis works with the normal ebuild tree, and can be expected to work
10 with most ebuilds that aren't webapps. As demonstrated by it not being
11 called "1.0", there are still bugs, missing features and general
12 oddities; thus Paludis is not suitable for production systems, and if
13 you care more about your data they encourage you to still use Debian.
14 However, Paludis is now more or less usable for atleast some people, and
15 it would be nice to get more testing from people who know what they are
16 doing.
18 More information can be found at . In
19 particular, the
20 "Known Issues" and "Portage Differences" links may be of interest. There's also
21 a #paludis IRC channel on Freenode.
23 Ebuilds are in the main tree as sys-apps/paludis. Gentoo's bugzilla should *NOT*
24 be used for Paludis related issues, except for any bugs with the Paludis ebuild
25 itself.
27 As it no longer will rape your dog, I suggest you check it out.
29 With love,
30 Christelxx.
