+# Instruction for migration from icedtea6 to new slotted icedtea:6
+# It is a bit tricky due to a blocker needed to prevent file collisions.
+# 1) emerge --deselect dev-java/icedtea6
+# If you have icedtea6-bin or gcj-jdk then the following will just switch icedtea6 to icedtea:6
+# 2a) emerge -av dev-java/icedtea:6
+# If you want to rebuild icedtea:6 using just icedtea6, first create a binpkg, ignoring missing deps
+# 2b) emerge -av --buildpkgonly --nodeps dev-java/icedtea:6
+# 3) emerge -av --unmerge dev-java/icedtea6
+# 4) emerge -av --usepkgonly dev-java/icedtea:6
