Most development of hardened-sources was done in hardened-development overlay. There are currently
recent versions of hardened-sources, but they have some regressions, which should be fixed, before
they are added to the main tree. If you want to help out with this package, i suggest you join
#gentoo-hardened on freenode, since that is the place, where most of the conversation is done.
Additionally it might have been better to send this mail at least in CC to gentoo-hardened ML, since
most interested and active people are only subscribed there.
