12 Whee! This sounds right up my alley! I see the file bugs upstream thing
13 and agree that makes the most sense.
15 I had tried the occasional nightly build, but was never quite sure of the
16 correct procedure to upgrade from one to the next, incremental vs. from
17 -rc patch and all that, so I just tried it a very few times, in
18 particular, when an rc was broken and known to be fixed within the next
19 snapshot or two. This will of course solve that problem for me.

22 Of course, I've been grabbing directly off of Now I'll have
23 to figure out how to adapt my scripts to use the portage tree
24 git-sources kernels. Fun, fun, fun! =8^)
