Subject: [gentoo-user] converting from testing to stable SLOWLY

A few months ago a procedure was given for converting from testing to
stable (e.g. ~amd64-->~amd) by essentially waiting for stable to catch
up.

I believe the basic idea was to unmask a bunch of packages and then as
stable catches up, remove the unmasks.  I also believe there was some
automated way to generate the unmasks and maybe a way to see when each
is not needed.

Can someone repost this msg?
I foolishly did not save it and now want to convert a system to stable
and can afford to do so slowly.

thanks,
allan
