||There are several packages that were thrown around on the list, or versions
||of packages, that I've come across that I figure I might want to take an
||active interest in. However, to avoid sending my boxes into a tailspin, I'm
||staying away from installing the still in development versions. What I'd
||like to know though is if there's some means of knowing if/when, as an
||example, a newer version of Portage is supposed to be considered stable. If
||not then I can always keep an eye on the relevant RSS feeds, but it was
||mostly just curiosity on my part. Thanks either way.
