8 Gentoo is massively reorganizing documentation. The old
9 "system" was arcane, and a fools errand to try to use.
10 A Few stalwarts resisted change for a long time. Gentoo-doc
11 teams needs lots of volunteers.
13 You most accurate resource is to communicate with the
14 gentoo-doc team directly. At the least, old version
15 of deprecated documents might still be around?
