8 There used to be a /etc/conf.d/net.example, but that stopped some way back
9 since sys-apps/openrc-0.12.4 I seem to recall. I never understood why. Since
10 then every new openrc version updates its net.example file, but instead of
11 doing so in /etc/conf.d/, it does it in /usr/share/doc/netifrc*/
13 BTW, this is the "gentoo way" only insofar that gentoo happens to use openrc.
14 If wicd, networkmanager, connman suit your needs, there's no obligation to use
15 openrc's scripts.
