proj/gentoo: Initial commit
This commit represents a new era for Gentoo: Storing the gentoo-x86 tree in Git, as converted from CVS. This commit is the start of the NEW history. Any historical data is intended to be grafted onto this point. Creation process: 1. Take final CVS checkout snapshot 2. Remove ALL ChangeLog* files 3. Transform all Manifests to thin 4. Remove empty Manifests 5. Convert all stale $Header$/$Id$ CVS keywords to non-expanded Git $Id$ 5.1. Do not touch files with -kb/-ko keyword flags. Signed-off-by: Robin H. Johnson <> X-Thanks: Alec Warner <> - did the GSoC 2006 migration tests X-Thanks: Robin H. Johnson <> - infra guy, herding this project X-Thanks: Nguyen Thai Ngoc Duy <> - Former Gentoo developer, wrote Git features for the migration X-Thanks: Brian Harring <> - wrote much python to improve cvs2svn X-Thanks: Rich Freeman <> - validation scripts X-Thanks: Patrick Lauer <> - Gentoo dev, running new 2014 work in migration X-Thanks: Michał Górny <> - scripts, QA, nagging X-Thanks: All of other Gentoo developers - many ideas and lots of paint on the bikeshed

+# For an in depth prelinking guide, please see:
+# Control prelinking behavior in the cronjob.
+# yes - automatically prelink the system
+# no - automatically un-prelink the system
+# "" - do nothing at all (user manages)
+# (if you change this from yes to no prelink -ua
+# will be run next night to undo prelinking)
+# Options to pass to prelink
+# -m Try to conserve virtual memory by allowing overlapping
+# assigned virtual memory slots for libraries which
+# never appear together in one binary
+# -R Randomize virtual memory slot assignments for libraries.
+# This makes it slightly harder for various buffer overflow
+# attacks, since library addresses will be different on each
+# host using -R.
+# How often should full prelink be run (in days)
+# Normally, prelink will be run in quick mode, every
+# $PRELINK_FULL_TIME_INTERVAL days it will be run
+# in normal mode. Comment it out if it should be run
+# in normal mode always.
+# How often should prelink run (in days) even if
+# no packages have been upgraded via portage.
+# If $PRELINK_FULL_TIME_INTERVAL days have not elapsed
+# yet since last normal mode prelinking, last
+# quick mode prelinking happened less than
+# and no packages have been upgraded by portage
+# since last quick mode prelinking, prelink
+# will not do anything.
+# Change to
+# if you want to disable the portage database timestamp
+# check (especially if you don't use portage
+# exclusively to upgrade system libraries and/or binaries).
