| So, I am wondering how everyone feels about live CVS ebuilds in the
| tree.  I'd prefer that everyone did CVS snapshots, but I know that
| won't happen overnight.  The real problem that I have is live CVS
| ebuilds that are not in package.mask.  The handbook seems to
| encourage marking them ~arch and not place them in package.mask, so I
| am curious how others feel about it before bringing this up on
| gentoo-dev@.

They shouldn't ever be out of package.mask, since we can't make any
kind of guarantee as to their stability.
