Default make.{conf,profile} move to /etc/portage

Just saw the eselect news item saying make.conf and make.profile are
moving to /etc/portage next week. Unfortunately, there's no link to a
page w/ more info in the news item. Does anyone know what version of
portage knows to look for them in this location? I don't want to move
mine prematurely

And yes, I read that we don't need to do anything. I *want* them in
/etc/portage. I've always felt they belonged there.

The current testing version, 2.2.0_alpha125, works with make.conf moved
to the new location. At least, emerge --info still shows the same
settings.

Agreed.

To most people solutions mean finding the answers. But to chemists
solutions are things that are still all mixed up.

I was hoping that this change meant that after 125 alpha versions
maybe portage-2.2 was finally going stable but I guess not if this
functionality was changed in 2.1.

fat chance :-)

portage-2.2 has had 100+ rc versions and 125 alpha versions. What's
the odds of it ever getting released?

Why not copy them over and create a symlink for "legacy"-reasons? I'd
guess that every stable version of portage will support it, because
that change (to the stage 3) wouldn't make sense otherwise.

I did that a long time ago, actually
I was hoping to remove the symlinks now and it looks like I can based
on the -dev post by Zac

My test VMs all run stable and all have make.conf in /etc/portage. They
all range from 12 - 18 months old
