9 That doesnt work if you ever need to install your favourite stable version on
10 a new machine, or re-emerge it for any reason. "emerge sync" is likely to
11 have removed those old ebuilds.
13 Ive been running my servers from my own tree since late last year, and it
14 works well. My tree is a snapshot of the standard portage tree on that day,
15 with any bug-fixes copied from the public portage tree into my
16 /usr/local/portage.
18 I am happy with this arrangement.
