What is involved? Switching the virtual? If so, you should really be asking on gentoo-dev, instead. I know that we don't explicitly ask for cdrtools during release-building, but catalyst does specifically ask for cdrkit. Are you wanting to get catalyst changed, too? -- Chris Gianelloni Release Engineering Strategic Lead Alpha/AMD64/x86 Architecture Teams Games Developer/Council Member/Foundation Trustee Gentoo Foundation
