* Portage now warns if an ebuild repository does not have a name, as several new
features in 2.2 make use of or require named repositories. The repository name
is stored in profiles/repo_name in each repository.
+* Package set support: There are several important notes regarding package sets:
+ - they may currently only include simple and versioned atom, use conditionals
+ or any-of constructs aren't possible yet
+ - emerge makes no difference atm wether you pass a setname or all atoms contained
+ in the set to it, this means that without options packages will be remerged if
+ already installed and added to the worldfile (exception: "world" and "system"
+ are still handled specially), or in the case of --unmerge all atoms in a set
+ will be unmerged even if they are depended upon by other packages
+ - sets shadow packages with the same name
