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.

+GNU nano - an enhanced clone of the Pico text editor.
+The nano project was started because of a few "problems" with the
+wonderfully easy-to-use and friendly Pico text editor.
+First and foremost is its license: the Pine suite does not use the
+GPL or a GPL-friendly license, and has unclear restrictions on
+redistribution. Because of this, Pine and Pico are not included with
+many GNU/Linux distributions. Also, other features (like goto line
+number or search and replace) were unavailable until recently or
+require a command line flag. Yuck.
+nano aims to solve these problems by emulating the functionality of
+Pico as closely as possible while addressing the problems above and
+perhaps providing other extra functionality.
+ <flag name='justify'>Enable justify/unjustify functions for text formatting.</flag>
+ <flag name='debug'>
+ Enable debug messages and assert warnings. Note that these will all be sent
+ straight to stderr rather than some logging facility.
+ </flag>
+ <flag name='magic'>
+ Add magic file support (sys-apps/file) to automatically detect appropriate syntax highlighting
+ </flag>
+ <flag name='minimal'>
+ Disable all fancy features, including ones that otherwise have a dedicated
+ USE flag (such as spelling).
