1 Hi Paul,
3 Others can give you a better response -- but as for the virtual/logger
4 and virtual/cron in system profiles, I think that would mess up the
5 livecd and install stages, because they would then get bloated up.
7 As far as cascading profiles are concerned -- we don't have any way to
8 add custom stuffs to the profiles (yet?). It might be on the roadmap
9 for some future date, though. The immediate goal for cascading profiles
10 was really to de-bloat /usr/portage/profiles. I'd suggest filing a bug
11 to dev-portage@gentoo for the custom support though.
