Default openrc portage news item

All,

this is the portage news item I am planning on committing to the tree.

This is based on an earlier version written by Christian Fallhammer.

If there are no suggestions for additions or corrections, this will be
committed on 5/1.

Thanks,

William

Title: Baselayout update
Author: Christian Faulhammer <fauli@gentoo.org>
Author: William Hubbs <williamh@gentoo.org>
Content-Type: text/plain
Posted: 2011-05-01
Revision: 1
News-Item-Format: 1.0
Display-If-Installed: <sys-apps/baselayout-2

The baselayout package provides files which all systems must have in
order to function properly. You are currently using version 1.x, which
has several issues. The most significant of these is that the included
init system is written entirely in bash, which makes it slow and
not very flexable.

In the near future, you will see an update for sys-apps/baselayout to
2.x and a new package, sys-apps/openrc. It is recommended that you
perform this update as soon as possible.

After you install these packages, please do not reboot your system
untill you follow the upgrade guide located at
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/openrc-migration.xml.

It is important that you follow the guide as soon as possible after
these packages are upgraded. Otherwise, there is a chance that your
system will not reboot properly.

I think it would be worth it to mention other problems too (just a list
of most important bugs if that makes sense).
