Description Ewoud Kohl van Wijngaarden 2009-07-23 03:41:51 UTC
For some time, there's an eselect profile module. This allows the user to update the profile symlinks. In my opinion, this is easier than manually looking in the profile dir and manually symlinking it.

This does require a more recent stage file than 2008.0, but it's included in every autobuild.

Reproducible: Always
