Default Portage 2.2 - when will it go stable?? WAS: Everything disappeared from world list

Then you probably need portage 2.2 for this. Which will never ever become
stable it seems,


Can anyone comment on *why* it is taking so long? It is beginning to
border on ridiculous - if it is ready (which I seem to recall lots of
references to 'why are you still using 2.1??), why not just stabilize it
already? I try really hard not to run anything unstable unless I
absolutely have to (for obvious reasons)...

https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=210077 <--- This is why it's
taking so long, there are still MANY bugs that should really be fixed.

Part of why it's taking so long for those bugs to be fixed is because
programmatic sets and preserve-libs aren't a priority, but things like
supporting new EAPIs and such are a far bigger priority.
