https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/User:Veremit/Gentoo_%27Tree%27_Relocation I'm willing to take on any catalyst changes too .. whoever first identifies an issue, feel free to open a bug and assign to me, blocking this bug. TIA

[Commenting here, because there doesn't seem to be a separate bug for it.] Many pages in the wiki have been updated, including the Handbook: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Handbook:AMD64/Portage/Files#Storing_files

Council is waiting for the portage-* snapshots to be renamed gentoo-*.
