Drop stable keywords for certain arches and/or remove their keywords from X packages. The idea is to keep only a single and smaller portage tree which would be much more easier to manage. Pretty much the same situation as MIPS. It worked pretty well on MIPS, so it will work on these arches too - -- Regards, Markos Chandras / Gentoo Linux Developer / Key ID: B4AFF2C2 -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.18 (GNU/Linux) iQIcBAEBCgAGBQJOPSyUAAoJEPqDWhW0r/LCkX4P/1+dE7WVE5PrgJcekL+hZzk5 BcXofUIV6h1jmyDnypf0a77xG/9PBPCMwuSCp5keBxp9CAJCHcQweUzBWzTQ+yA8 GBSrgBGWmuezL2oikkIXNlP0tcQaKqVpvUtnt2MXJt9DeoaBsuJIcaZzlCrFLWgf 1kIxpDn6e2UFlLPyLHz8hKMlWsEZeMPZPMI8224a8BwUmoQO1ZIWcJDOUsVgyUdR ZCsqIESRspy9ULI6ZmLoAmpCVsNNrsrZ9bKItLi7jVoyfhg7THUpXtQz0Yk6kbG+ vn4zh9h2wMT0auziWMu9fb5cEKe1ZjMgp2WsKmNko8x7jXfz1MrvICYT5YKbHA5k GJpkydCnwrAIptVGC+fVz1KYEV6LI4sQVpSEdhupsKlU8+l5SmsX4oakzmpeVM5U 6WVtOfQXw84cuRDt2vovqkhz9XhKe/eIXCmaRL3oVx7dikeozKH5rKMCoSQRvaF/ QLPx5FaUq7KTsyYZzB6LSYZBLtGjEsIpkpLWyZ36eGJIm0j3oymte2xgJCm+eReH FIE31FofZus0JxQWIqlnYbj87QnTeqSLhPHICOUeVSjCg101gjAX5R9IvOQlBZ4a RsCl+7zkP8Fsm/OdO/1uo+Q1IMaAzU6fNIRZUHDqhp0fSiMfj8AVvTk9JzNKw0ZM cAGdigLjEHq5eFda5j+i =/l3O -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
