Migrating man page to asciidoc?)
 
Second try as a new thread:

To me that leaves the question who uses 9999 for serious stuff at all.
In case it's no one (which we should find out) we could trash that
branch and fully concentrate on calalyst_2.

I guess that sounds a bit radical at first. It doesn't have to be a
quick decision. Also, version control allows us to bring it back if needed.

Ideas on find out who is using 9999:

- Removing 9999 ebuild from the tree and see who's complaining

- Resetting branch master to nothing but a README announcing
the possible death of that thread and a request to join
this mailing list and speak up about it if there is need.

- Asking on one/some/all of gentoo-dev, gentoo-user, gentoo forums,
planet gentoo.

After such action I imagine a time window of 2 to 4 weeks to give people
a chance to react.

What do you think?

That seems to further decrease the chance that someone is using 9999 for
real to me.

Best,

I actually use the -9999 ebuild with EGIT_BRANCH="catalyst_2", so I'd
prefer not to do this.

I would probably just ask if anyone is using catalyst3 through a few
mediums. I suspect that no one is.

In order to make any sort of decisions, we should probably know what
the significant changes in catalyst-3 are to begin with.

To improve on that workaround please add a new live ebuild 2.9999.
