Subject: [gentoo-user] Question re: make.conf/profile location change

1 Hello,
3 Was reviewing older news items and was wondering about this one:
5 "# eselect news read 12
6 2012-09-09-make.conf-and-make.profile-move
7 Title make.conf and make.profile move

10 Revision 1
12 Starting next week, new stages will have make.conf and make.profile
13 moved from /etc to /etc/portage. This is a change in the installation
14 defaults, that will only affect new installs so it doesn't affect
15 current systems.
17 Current users don't need to do anything. But if you want to follow the
18 preferred location, you may want to take the chance to move the files
19 in your system(s) to the new location."
21 My question is, what if they are in both locations? Which ones are used?
22 I would assume that portage now looks first in /etc/portage and uses
23 those if it finds them, and if not, looks in /etc - but the news item is
24 incomplete on this question.
