11 Do it at the earliest possible opportunity.
13 Otherwise you will emmerge world and update to a current stable system, then
14 amend ACCEPT_KEYWORDS and update to a current unstable system, effectively
15 rendering the first emerge world as completely useless.
17 Don't listen to people who will tell you cr@p like "starting with stable lets
18 you find problems and fix them first". This is nonsense as once you start
19 going unstable there is no going back, or at least no easy way to go back.
